Cuala are Leinster senior hurling champions. Congrats to all concerned. It was a wonderful display by all the team and in actual fact they could have won by as much more again as they squandered some easy goal chances. To beat the Kilkenny club champions by nine points is a great achievement. Clubs that ran Cuala close in the Dublin championship will feel that they can do the same in the years ahead.
This is a massive boost for Dublin hurling. For year thirty seven years Dublin clubs failed to win the title. Cuala have now shown us it can be done.
Not a bad year for Dublin hurling after all. We have four trophies to show for our efforts- The Leinster minor, u -21 and club, and Walsh Cup. Kilkenny have only one trophy to display this year.
Bring on 2017.
