After winning the Longford senior hurling title for a magnificent sixth year in succession, Wolfe Tones Mostrim now turn their attention to the Leinster Junior Club Championship.
Avondale cruised to a very easy 5-18 to 1-7 win over Arklow in the Wicklow Intermediate final on Sunday last in making an immediate return to the senior grade following their relegation last season.
While the Arklow cause suffered a significant setback when they had a player sent-off midway through the first half, they were generally outclassed by the much stronger Avondale outfit who led by 1-11 to 1-2 at the break.
