Historic Week: There were jubilant scenes in Breffni Park on Sunday evening last following the Senior championship final when our team, Mullahoran Dreadnoughts, emerged convincing winners over a fancied Kingscourt Stars side. On a score line of 1-8 to 0-7, it brought to an end a wait of 6 years to bring the Oliver Plunkett cup back to winter in Mullahoran. This was the replay of the drawn game the previous week when it was felt that the Dreadnoughts might have thrown away their chance to win their 12th Senior Championship. However, the Dreadnoughts upset the form-book to show that it is possible for the underdogs to win a replay. Full credit to the lads they showed true grit and determination as they settled down to play football with each player on the field playing his part. The last score of the game was a brilliantly executed goal when Paul Brady gave a defence-splitting pass to Tomás Nannery who off-loaded to Philip Brady who was on target and set the supporters wild just before the final whistle. On Sunday evening as the team made the happy journey home via Middletown Cross where a huge bonfire blazed the supporters were out in throngs to welcome them and the final stop in Kilcogy had all the trappings of a victorious triumphant homecoming. The music and celebrations lasted long into the late hours and as the parish rejoiced and feted their heroes. While last Sundays win was a momentous one for the local GFC Club this was in fact the second Co. Championship win for the parish in the week as on Tuesday last the u14 team had a convincing win over Cornafean in the 3G pitch in Breffni park. This was a heartening display by the youngsters and augurs well for the future of the game in the parish. In Kilcogy on Sunday night both teams took the stand to raptourous applause, many of the underage lads standing in the shelter of their heroes. Well done to both teams and their mentors for a great weeks football, the culmination of a great season in both grades.
