TheE March winner of the Rebel Óg monthly awards are Mitchelstown CBS.
The school’s hurling team won the Michael Cusack Cup final (All-Ireland Senior C hurling), following their win over St Mary’s, Magherafelt.
No doubt the experience of their semi-final win helped secure the title, as against Clarin College they came from five points down in the second half to win by two.
In the final itself, they dominated all through with goals from Shane Looney, Conor Walsh, and Matthew Fitzgibbon helping them to a 3-17 to 0-8 win.
Speaking at the awards ceremony Michael o’Mahony, chairman of Rebel Óg, congratulated the school in their success. “Any time you win an All-Ireland title is a great day and on behalf of Rebel Óg and our sponsors I would like to congratulate Mitchelstown CBS on their win,” said Mr O’Mahony.
“A lot of hard work goes into a win like this over many months so our congrats also to your management team for all the work they have done to help get you there. Hopefully, you will enjoy many more great days on the pitch in the years to come,” concluded Mr O’Mahony.
