Rossa took U12 title in 1990

In 1990 Rossa travelled to Dunloy to face North Antrim champions Loughgiel in the final of the County Under 12 Hurling Championship and came away winners by 3-1 to 1-5. A lot of hurlers on both teams went on to make their mark for club and county.

This is the report I did for the Ballymena Chronicle back then

DD Quinn in the Loughgiel goals in the U12 final against Rossa in 1990. 22 years later he and Johnny Campbell lifted the Tommy Moore Cup on the steps of the Hogans Stand in Croke Park and 26 years later he won his fifth Senior Championship medal with the Shamrocks and to top it all off the won a London title with Robert Emmets in 2019, 29 years on from when this pic was taken.
Some hurling journey!
