End of a great run – It was all so close…but in the end it was not meant to be. Last Sunday’s single point defeat in the Ulster final denied St. Enda’s an historic first title but our players and management team still came away from the Athletic Grounds as local heroes. Their performance in the decider and all throughout this championship season was memorable and although it may have ended in some disappointment, we cannot forget that 2014 has been an incredible season which reaped no fewer than six county titles for club teams, culminating of course in that famous first senior county final win in 26 years on the 28th September. Well done to everyone who put in such commitment this season and a special word of thanks to our team sponsors the Mellon Country Hotel and to Logan and Corry Solicitors for sponsoring kit bags for last Sunday.
