On the 5th of October 1980 Monageer Boolavogue defeated Glynn Barntown in the Intermediate Hurling final, to become a senior club for the first time. On the 33rd anniversary of this great win, the Intermediate ‘A’ hurlers face the Shamrocks in the county final for a place in Intermediate hurling 2014. Our manager this year Jimmy Gahan was a key player on that 1980 team.
The match takes place on Saturday at 5pm in Wexford Park. We have already played the Shamrocks this year and lost by two points. We have played the Shamrocks four times in the last four years in championship hurling with the current score being two wins each so todays match will see one team take the lead in this stat but more importantly will see the winners moving up a grade for next year.
