The Portumna hurlers collected the Tommy Moore Cup on the steps of the Hogan Stand for a stunning fourth time in nine years on Monday after seeing off Mount Leinster Rangers by 0-19 to 0-11.
Manager Frank Canning had 10 men on the field who played in the club's first All-Ireland success in 2006. Now, to have won four All-Ireland club medals in a decade is a magnificent and wonderful achievement that speaks volumes for the commitment, dedication and skill levels of this squad.
Inspirational captain Ollie Canning (37 ) described Portumna’s journey over the last decade as “ unbelievable”.
“We never dreamed we would be back here to pick up the Tommy Moore Cup for the fourth time," he said.
His younger brother and three-times All-Star Joe Canning ended the game with 10 points, two from play, and that tally was added to by Damien Hayes 0-3, Ollie Canning 0-3, Kevin Hayes 0-2 and Ronan O' Meara 0-1.
It is the club's first All-Ireland title since 2009, and that five-year wait, will have made another St Patrick's Day conquest all the sweeter.
