Kilruane run out comprehensive winners in North U21B football final

Kilruane MacDonaghs are the north Tipp Under 21 B football champions after defeating Ballina 6-13 to 0-9 in Puckane last night.

Cian Darcy was to the fore for Kilruane as they went into an early lead going in 3-8 to 0-4 up at half time.

There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding the fixture following the new interpretation of a rule handed down to clubs by the Central Council this week.

It was decided that a player must be aged 17 or over on 1st January 2019 to play in this years remaining Under 21 Football championship, and in the 2019 Under 21 Hurling championship.
