SE­NIOR HURL­ING Glenealy 5-20, Bray Em­mets 1-7: A huge bank of lights beamed down on Avon­dale grounds for this group Se­nior hurl­ing cham­pi­onship game on Wed­nes­day night but the thing that lit up the pitch the most was the il­lu­mi­nat­ing hurl­ing of Glenealy’s Jonathan O’Neill.

Over the years Bosco has played many great games for club and county and this per­for­mance ranks up there with the very best.

From start to fin­ish he was the pow- er­house of the Glenealy side, his ac­cu­racy from play and frees not hav­ing lost its ra­zor sharp edge as his 1-14 con­tri­bu­tion to their 25 point winning mar­gin over Bray Em­mets so elo­quently tes­ti­fies.

The county cham­pi­ons needed to win one of their last two group games to reach the cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal and con­tinue the de­fence of their ti­tle; this win means that there is lit­tle rel­e­vancy and noth­ing at stake in their last match against Kil­te­gan, whom they will now meet in the cham­pi­onship semi-fi­nal next week in­stead.
