Final Score: Antrim 0-22 Kerry 1-17
The Crotta Hurling Club was well represented on the Kerry panel by Seven players Tomas O’Connor (Full Back), Shane Nolan (Centre Forward) Barry Mahony came on a sub in 42 min, Sean Weir Adam O’Sullivan, Donal Hunt and Jordan Conway also members of the panel. We are looking forward to the next hurling season already which won’t be too far away! Our near neighbors Limerick defeated Waterford in the All Ireland Senior Final by 0-30 to 0-19.
The Legendary Sonny Egan, Crotta composed a song for the occasion (Kerry Hurling Song) and performed his newly song for the Kerry Senior Hurlers and their management team before they board their busses in Abbeydorney on Saturday 12th December on their Journey for the McDonogh Cup Final in Croke Park against Antrim. Well done Sonny.
