Well done to All Ireland hardball winners

Ian griffin and christy donnelly bridged a 24 year gap last night by winning the all ireland junior hardball doubles final against a very fancied roscommon  pairing of chris doolin and glen walsh.the strange thing is it was also a na fianna pairing back in 1983 that won this title,eddie lee and ray walsh, eddie lee winning the singlas crown as well.From the off there was only one winner the lads played superb handball with great kills and passing shots by both players.There was no sign of nerves considering  these lads were beaten in three all ireland finals and a semi final in the junior softball in the last 5 years so to say it was a deserved win is an understatement.
 
CONGRATS TO THE LADS AND BEST OF LUCK IN SOFTBALL JUNIOR DOUBLES
