Congratulations to St Brigid’s hurlers

SINN Féin Councillor and St Brigid’s committee member Cathal Mclaughlin has congratulated his club on winning their first ever county intermediate hurling championship title with a victory over St Paul’s of Belfast at Casement Park last Sunday.

Cllr McLaughlin said: “Cloughmills went into this championship as underdogs but surprised everyone but their own supporters by defeating favourites Gort Na Mona in the semi-final, and then St Pauls in the final by a single point.

“I would like to congratulate the St Brigids hurlers on winning their first ever county intermediate hurling championship title since the club was founded some 20 years ago.”

Local MLA Daithí McKay also added his congratulations saying: “North Antrim continues to be at the heart of Ulster hurling and it is great to see a club like Cloughmills go from strength to strength as it has done in recent years.”
