IT WAS A memorable Sunday afternoon for Glen Rovers as the north Cork outfit ended a 26-year wait for county senior hurling glory.

Naturally, there were wild celebrations as the men from Blackpool toasted a 2-17 to 1-13 victory over last year’s winners and pre-match favourites Sarsfields.

This was a quite remarkable win for Rovers, who lost by 16 points against the same opposition in the 2014 decider.

County star Patrick Horgan was the shooting star for the Glen, registering a haul of nine points, including seven from frees.

And Horgan posted this video last night as the Rovers let it be known in no uncertain terms who now rules the roost on Leeside.
