Congratulations to St.Fiachra’s newly crowned Minor Football Roinn B County Champions 2014. St. Fiachra’s 4.08  Mullinavat 3.02

A strong first half performance saw St. Fiachra’s lead by 3.04 to 0.00. The first of three goals came from a well taken penalty by Terry Dreelan after Shane Hayden was taken down on route to Goal. Terry again and Neil Jordan netted two more goals from play. Two points from Jamie Byrne and one each from Eddie Murphy and Niall Hayden gave the boys a comfortable lead at the break. From the throw in Jamie Byrne kicked over another point to increase the lead to 14. Then up steps Kilkenny Minor hurler John Walsh from Mullinavat who clocked up 2.02 in a matter of minutes and Mullinavat suddenly came to life. Jamie Byrne converted a free and Terry Dreelan put the brakes on any comeback by Mullinavat when he rattled the net for the 4th time. John Walsh kept pressing and he netted his third goal. A Jamie Byrne free and well taken point from Niall Hayden put the icing on the cake for Fiachra’s. Well done to all the lads and their mentors.
