Clonduff II and Burren II met in the final of the Felix Darby Cup in Drumgath on Saturday 6th August. The first half was a cagey affair with the scores level at half time Clonduff 1-4 Burren 0-7.

The half-time team talk had the desired effect – Clonduff moved up a gear and scored 1-6 whilst holding Burren to 3 points. Great result for the lads and management.
