Clare SHC final

Crusheen 0-10 Sixmilebridge 0-4

Crusheen put together back-to-back titles as they beat Sixmilebridge in bog-like condition in Ennis yesterday. It’s the club’s second ever senior title.

Cian Dillon took the man-of-the-match award.

Kilkenny SHC final

Ballyhale Shamrocks 0-11 James Stephens 1-8

Henry Shefflin was again the hero for Ballyhale yesterday. The intercounty star hit a late, late point to deny James Stephens and earn his side a replay.

The decider was, again, played in inclement conditions at Nowlan Park.

Mayo SFC final

Ballintubber 1-10 Castlebar 1-9

It’s two on the trot for Ballintubber too having earned their first senior tile last season.

They were made to work for it though, inspired by newly-crowned Young Footballer of the Year Cillian O’Connor, they just edged out Castlebar Mitchels by a single point.

Waterford SFC final

Ballinacourty 0-6 Stradbally 0-5

Ballinacourty denied Stradbally a three-in-a-row with this single-point win at Fraher Field in difficult conditions yesterday. The pair met in last year’s decider too.

Garrycastle 1-9 Mullingar 0-9

Garrycastle made history as they won their third successive county over Mullingar Shamrocks.

They came from behind at Cusack Park thanks to points from Dessie Dolan, Doran Harte and Seanie O’Donoghue.
