An Ghaeltacht are the Senior Comórtas Champions!
Congratulations to the An Ghaeltacht Club on successfully hosting the 50th annual Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta.
The event had representatives from all seven Gaeltacht counties. Great crowds enjoyed the games and the West Kerry hospitality. Perhaps the icing on the cake was for the host club to win the Senior Final.
The final was between Kilcar and An Ghaeltacht.
At half time, Kilcar had the lead 0-6 to 0-3.
In the 60th minute the men from the west drew level at 8 points a piece. That brought the game to extra time.
Half time in extra time saw the teams level again with 10 points each.
However an unbelievable point from the boot of Sean Ó Muircheartaigh from a tight angle won the game for An Ghaeltacht. The game finished 12 points to 11. Congratulations to all in An Ghaeltacht!
Congratulations also the Southern Gaels ladies who were also crowned senior winners.
