Connacht Colleges Junior Football Champions 2019
On Tuesday March 5th a rain sodden Elphin GAA ground was the venue for an enthralling Connacht Colleges Junior Football Final between Abbey College Boyle and Strokestown. The proverbial game of two halves was certainly the case today with Strokestown dominating the first half and Abbey College the second. However, the outstanding individual performance of Daire Cregg who shot 1-9 was to be the ultimate difference between the sides and Abbey College prevailed to win the cup by two points.
