There will also be eleven other prizes ranging from €3,000 to €100.

Junior: Lorrha 1-17 Emly 1-20
Our Juniors campaign came to an end on Sunday afternoon where we were defeated by Emly in the county quarter final. This was a closely fought game with little to separate the sides all through. The West side made the crucial burst early in the second half opening up a lead which we could not fully peg back despite a much improved second half effort. Well done to the lads for producing a great effort this year and also to manager Eamon Maher and selectors Padraig Madden, Kieran Hough and Niall Brophy.
