Daire Walsh

IT MAY have called for extra time to get the job done, yet Kilmacud Crokes kept their dual hopes to life by securing the Dublin Senior Hurling Champion title at Parnell Park this night.

Routing newbie finalists Na Fianna by nine points– 2-23 to 1-17– with just 10 mins of typical time staying, the Stillorgan clothing looked readied to lose out on a sixth success at this grade.

That was up until Crokes (for whom inter-county star Ronan Hayes gathered an exceptional haul of 1-14) embarked on an amazing goal blitz to deny their opponents at the death.

Momentum now behind them, they continued to outscore Niall Ó Ceallacháin’s charges by 0-8 to 0-1 in the extra periods. With a Dublin Senior citizen Football Championship decider to expect versus St Jude’s following weekend, it is ending up being a winter months to keep in mind for Kilmacud.
