David Cullen Memo­rial Cup stays at home

Bray People - - Sport -

Laragh 0-14, An Tochar 0-8: Satur­day was the tenth an­niver­sary of the death of young Laragh foot­baller David Cullen and the club pulled out all the stops to keep his mem­ory alive in a way that he would have liked best – on the lo­cal play­ing field where he spent so much of his youth.

They linked up with neigh­bours An Tocher to stage a day of non-stop foot­ball in­volv­ing boys and girls in all age groups

It was an out­stand­ing suc­cess and the Laragh Club Chair­man Richie Cullen wishes to thank County Chair­man Andy O’Brien for at­tend­ing; the An Tochar Club for their sup­port and every­one else who helped out.

The show­piece was the fi­nal of the David Cullen Cup and that match cer­tainly lived up to the oc­ca­sion. Laragh held a nar­row 0-7 to 0-5 lead at half­time against a strong An Tochar team.

In the sec­ond-half the home side con­tin­ued their re­cent good form and ran out win­ners by a six-point mar­gin to keep the cup at home for only the sec­ond time in ten years.

David’s mother Maura pre­sented the cup to Laragh cap­tain Tom Cullen.
