Presentation Milltown produced a stunning performance to get the better of a fancied St Brendan’s, Killarney, in the Dunloe Cup final to claim their first ‘A’ Schools title in the Kingdom.
Cian Doe was the star for Milltown with 1-4, his goal in the 44th minute coming after a splendid 50m individual run and finish that put the game to bed at 2-11 to 0-6.
The Sem struggled in the injured Cian McMahon’s absence as Doe set up Milltown captain Cillian Burke for their first goal in the 13th minute.
Pres led by 1-7 to 0-5 at the break and never looked back.
Proud doesn't even come close in describing how we feel about this group of players today. A superb performance in Fitzgerald Stadium saw Pres Milltown win our first ever Dunloe Cup Final. pic.twitter.com/QNk3wzfR2W— Presentation Miltown (@Presmilltown) December 4, 2019
