REACTION | Supporters immensely proud of Mullinalaghta following their club championship odyssey

Supporters immensely proud of Mullinalaghta following their club championship odyssey

Despite the disappointment of defeat, Mullinalaghta St Columba's supporters remain upbeat this evening and immensely proud of their magnificent team following their memorable AIB All-Ireland club senior football championship odyssey.

Mullinalaghta defeated their neighbours Abbeylara after a replay to win their third Longford county title in succession in 2018 and victories over Rhode (Offaly), Eire Og (Carlow) and Kilmacud Crokes (Dublin) saw them become the first Longford club to win a provincial club senior crown.

The All-Ireland dream came unstuck today on a poor and slippy Semple Stadium, Thurles surface against Kerry's Dr Crokes of Killarney and afterwards Mullinalaghta supporters took to social media platforms in their droves to express their pride at the manner in which the team represented themselves, their families, 'half parish', county and province.
