Southern Gaels re-claim the John Maher Trophy

After losing out to the same opposition, Cullion, in last year's decider, Southern Gaels were determined to reclaim the John Maher trophy this year.
This is Southern Gaels own trophy and tournament, and an important part of each year's hurling calender. The Gaels started well, and quite quickly opened up a lead that was never relinquished over the course of the match.
There was some lovely hurling played, with Tommy Murphy and Gavin Daly putting in a very productive afternoon in the forwards.
The backs were hurling well and contained the Cullion forward division pretty well.
Scorers on the day for the Gaels included Tommy Murphy who scored a beauty from the sideline to seal the victory, Tony O'Keeffe, Conor Foley and Gavin Daly.
Afterwards, at a small reception in the clubhouse, captain Tony O'Keeffe graciously accepted the trophy giving due credit to Cullion for the fixture and paying great credit   to the 3 men and the lady who've put in a huge effort into training the adult team this year: Brendan Kehoe, Artie Pyke, Johnny Foley and Vera Corcoran.
