All Roads lead to Dublin tomorrow with the meeting of Dunloy and Ballyhale Shamrocks in the All Ireland Club hurling final at Croke Park uppermost on the Saffron Gael and most Antrim follower’s minds and we have carried previews and reports this week in the build up to Cuchullain’s challenge for a first title at this level.
The Saffron Gael will be there to cover the game and bring you reports and photographs from what is a massive game for the Antrim and Ulster champions and hopefully capture the celebrations after should they win.
Dunloy’s clash with Ballyhale is just one of a big double bill however and is followed by Glen, Maghera’s bid for a first All Ireland club football title and the Derry and Ulster champions face an equally formidable challenge when they take on Kilmacud Crokes in the football decider.
Today I was looking through the archives and came across a game at the Creggan U21 tournament back in 2017 between Watty Graham’s and Ramor Utd of Cavan. Glen won the tournament that year and indeed collected three titles in a row at that time and today we publish a selection of photographs from that game that features quite a number of the players who will represent the Derry champions tomorrow.
The same weekend we were in Dunloy for the club’s annual indoor hurling tournament with the Cuchullian’s fielding two sides on the day and we include photographs of both those side with many of them in action tomorrow in the hurling decider.
