Ballyhale Shamrocks v James Stephens
The Tom Walsh Cup made the familiar journey back to Ballyhale on Sunday evening after the Shamrocks had withstood a massive second half effort from James Stephens to land their third successive Kilkenny county title. The club may only have been formed in 1972 but Sunday’s victory lifts them to joint second with Bennettsbridge and Mooncoin in the roll of honours list. They will have to add eight more to catch up on the mighty Tullaroan club, mind you, they have had a head start on the Shamrocks’ club considering that they won their first title back in 1887.
It was deja-vu all over again. Similar to the county senior final, Ballyhale Shamrocks were effortlessly cruising to victory as they led the Laois senior champions 1-13 to 1-3 at the interval.
