Na Piarsaigh U15 footballers honoured

Na Piarsaigh U15 footballers are the August winners of the Rebel Óg monthly award as they defeated Ballincollig in an entertaining Premier 1 championship final.
After coming through the group stages they then came through an epic semi-final encounter with a sublime win over Douglas, 4-9 to 2-9 to reach the decider against the Village.
In the end, Na Piarsaigh were just that little bit better than their opposition, winning by 3-12 to 1-13.
It does help when you have an outstanding forward in Luke Hurley, who impressed once again, as he finished up with 2-8. It was a really good team performance from the city club with the likes of Darragh O’Leary, Nathan Coffey, Craig O’Sullivan and Seán O’Callaghan also impressing as the cup headed to Fair Hill.
Chairman of Rebel Óg Michael O’Mahony congratulated Na Piarsaigh on their win and said to win a county title is always a great achievement.
“Winning a championship is not easily done so congratulations to all the players, mentors, the club and your parents in all they have done to see you win this title,” said Mr O’Mahony.
“A lot, if not all, of you will be playing schools games in the coming months and I wish you the best of luck in them and I also hope to see you going on to represent your club in both football and hurling for many years to come.”
