It took over 80 minutes of football to separate these sides and in the end it was a 78th minute goal from substitute Tiarnan Ahearne that won this tightly contested North Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior ‘C’ Football Championship Final for Ratoath College (Meath) after extra-time at the Dunganny grounds, Trim on Friday evening last.
