Murphy starred as Rath­new tri­umphed


GAELIC FOOT­BALL is rather pop­u­lar in the vil­lage of Rath­new so no doubt the news that Ste­wart Murphy is the Ju­nior A foot­baller of the year has in­creased his pop­u­lar­ity also.

Murphy was one of the star men for the Vil­lagers as their sec­ond team took all the plau­dits for a change by scoop­ing the Ju­nior A cham­pi­onship.

It looked like Murphy et al were go­ing to have their names en­graved on the tro­phy with­out hav­ing to break sweat af­ter a bit of to­ing and fro­ing by would-be fi­nal op­po­nents Bless­ing­ton which saw the fi­nal post­poned orig­i­nally and there was talk of a walkover but even­tu­ally ev­ery­thing was ironed out and Rath­new and Murphy kept their wits about them to lift the tro­phy.
