Within the opening minute our keeper was called on to save from the early Kanturk threat, by the 10th minute , Dromtarriffe held a 0-4 to 0-2 lead thanks to the free taking Tomas Howard. DROMTARIFFE SOLID TEAM PERFORMANCE SECURED FIRST ROUND WIN IN MHC: From the first half throw in, our Minor hurlers worked hard throughout to earn a well deserved victory over a strong Kanturk side.

Clonakilty were victorious, due in no small part to the return of Mick Finn to action: the games had gone on so long that hed had time to recover from the broken hand sustained almost two months earlier. The west Cork men won 3-5 to 0-5, a surprisingly wide margin for two teams which couldnt be separated for so long.

Contrasting backgrounds too, Kilmacabea appearing in afirst time decider, while its close on 60 years since Dromtarriffe last set foot in search of one of the most prestigious prizes in Cork Football. Maybe not the pair that many would have forecasted at the start of the summer but Dromtarriffe and Kilmacabea enjoyed victories enroute to jusify their presence in this county final. A novel final tinged with romance on the first time meeting between the pair.

Final score Dromtarriffe 2-14 Kanturk 0-18. Kanturk piled on the pressure and were guilty of some score able wides ( much to our relief) , but also Dromtarriffe were also well served by some great defence from our keeper ( Gavin O Keeffe) through the whole team , especially Conor OCallaghan , Brian Herlihy Eanna Murnagh and Shane MCSweeney. Mark Dennehy & Evan Murphy added the final two club points before the final whistle sounded recording the Dromtarriffe win .

And with a slick moving attack creating inroads that included minors Jerry O'Sullivan and Toms Howard as did Conor and Kevin Cremin to fire over neat points. Still, Dromtariffe looked a side with much to offer, much of it down to the significant workrate of Shane McSweeney, Billy O'Gorman and Conor O'Callaghan in defence with man of the match Kevin Cremin and Mark O'Connor dominating midfield.

Another Tomas Howard point shortly followed , however David Murphy again rewarded his Banteer team mates for their determind play by raising his second green flag shortly follwed with a Roche point. A delighted Mikie O Gorman accepted the cup on behalf of the Dromtarriffe Hurling squad. In the 6th minute Banteer were awarded awarded another free,which was converted, the next passge of playresultingwith Dromtarriffe downto 14 after a melee of players contestinga ball that wasn't coming out,resulted witha player receiving his second yellow. After the first quarter, there was just three points between the sides two Tomas Howards points , one from a free, followed by a Darren O Connor point, were followed by a Conor Cremin goal, to leave Dromtarriffe well in a commanding position in the 25th minute. An O Keeffe and Conor Cremin combination was finished to the net by O Keeffe in the 10th minute followed by three points one each for the Howard brothers, Sean & Tomas and a second one for Evan Murphy before Banteer through David Murphy reacted first from a batted out ball to goal. A brace of Tomas Howard points eased the Dromtarriffe supporters worries with the final white flag being raised by Banteer from play in the 32nd minute of the second half, to leave the final whistle register Dromtarriffe winning their first league title on the 2-20 to 3-14 scoreline. With nineteen minutes remaining on the clock, Dromtarriffe were going to earn this title if they were to hold out for the victory and ever reliable Tomas kept his sides scores ticking over with a free in the 12th minute keeping Dromtarriffe seven ahead , 2-18 to 3-8. Entering stoppage time points were exchanged between Murphy for Dromtarriffe and Banteers Denis Roche to leave the interval scoreboard read Dromtarriffe 2-15 Banteer 3-6. Banteer were to add a point from play before a number of frees that were correctly awarded were deemed by the match official, as vocal player protests, which warranted these being brought into a more scoreable position, thus resulting in the gap being closed between the 13th and 21st minutes of the second half, to just two points. Dromtarriffe started the second half well with points by Evan and Tomas either side of two Banteer frees but quickly it seemed as though Banteer had forumalated a determind second half fightback plan of action during their half time deliberations, through imposing pressure in ever sector of the pitch. The Duhallow Championship semi final will be the next major challenge for this sqaud. Another historic title was secured by our Junior hurlers last Friday night in Kilbrin when Dromtarriffe defeated Kilbrin by three points on a final scoreline of Dromtarriffe 2-20 Banteer 3-14, after withstanding a second half come back from their opponents before a good attendance.
