Feile na nGael Div 3 Hurling Final Winners
Castletown-Geoghegan: 5-8 Ruan (Clare): 1-2
In Cusack Park in Clare on Sunday 20th June a powerful start by Westmeath side Castletown-Geoghegan laid the foundations for a comfortable win over a game Ruan side from Clare, in the final of Feile nGael Div3 hurling competition. A trio of first half goals from Liam Cassidy (2) and Paddy Doody set the winners on the way even though Ruan had half a dozen goal chances that went abegging in a half time scoreline of (3-4) to (0-1) that did scant justice to the efforts of the Clare side. Castletown-Geoghegan continued their dominance in the second half with early scores from Liam Cassidy, Cormac Deegan, the excellent Paddy Doody (goal), Johnny Bermingham and Shane Clavin before Conal O hAinifein scored a goal from a free. A late goal from sub Andrew Corbett sealed the win for the Westmeath outfit as the final whistle brought huge celebrations for the large Castletown support.
