Éire Óg Annacarty will live to fight another day in the Dan Breen Cup.

They have defeated Burgess in the County Senior A Relegation Final this afternoon on a scoreline of 1-17 (20) to 16 points.

Burgess rallied the troops during that break and 13 minutes into the second half, the score was level at 12 points a piece.

It was level again five minutes later at 13 points a piece (with a water break in between).

However, it was Éire Óg Annacarty’s game from there on, with a goal coming in the 22nd minute as a result of a penalty, meaning the score was then 1-14 (17) to 13 points.

Despite Burgess managing another 3 points, it wasn’t enough to see them over the line as Éire Óg matched them to run out with four points to spare.

Éire Óg Annacarty: 1-17

Burgess: 0-16
