Garrycastle roar into seventh heaven

Garrycastle 1-11 Mullingar Shamrocks 0-08

This was a very sweet victory for the Athlone based side as they were almost dumped out of the championship in the group stages.

However, under the guidance of Des Dolan senior, father of Dessie Dolan, Garrycastle showed great resurgence to reach thefinal, before deservedly overcoming Shamrocks in what was a disappointing, tactical and scrappy affair.
