Rosemount captured the Hugh Daniels Cup and win the Westmeath Junior Championship beating a very strong Milltown team by 4 pts with scoreline of 0- 9 to 0-5 on Sunday. After spending a year in junior the ranks the milestone had been reached and everyone agreed the only way forward was up. After a very tough encounter in Cusack Park on Sunday the ROSES playing only their second junior final (last one was in 1928) came out victorious winners. We always knew this one would not be easy and a very brave Milltown side kept players and supporters alike on their toes right to the end when the referee Alan Mc McCormack blew the final whistle.

This was a low scoring game unlike the earlier rounds where both teams topped their respective groups with Rosemount having a more impressive record. Rosemount scored 8.79 to Milltowns 7.55, conceding 6.18 to 6.37 . In the opening five minutes Rosemount dominated the play having 6 wides in the first 5 minutes. Despite Rosemounts dominance the sides were level 0-3 each at half time. Milltown had their share of wides early in the second half but true grit and determination from the 19 players used on the day saw Rosemount hold out to win in the end by 4 points.

Players and supporters celebrated long into the night and indeed the next day when a number of players and team management took the Hugh Daniels Cup to our local national school. Master Scally thanked everyone for sharing this joyous win with the children and commented that a number of this team were also stars on the school team which won Comortas Na mBun Scoil (1999-2000).
