Former All-Ireland winners Cuala crash out of Leinster SHC as Carlow champions march on

The Dublin kingpins lost out to St Mullins by just one point at the quarter-final stage.

FORMER ALL-IRELAND champions Cuala have crashed out of the Leinster SHC competition after losing out to Carlow side St Mullins at the quarter-final stage.

St Mullins held on for a slender one-point victory as the 2017 and 2018 All-Ireland champions bow out on a scoreline of 2-13 to 0-18.

The Carlow champions will now progress to the semi-finals where they will take on Rathdowney-Errill of Laois, who got the better of St Rynagh’s in their Leinster SHC quarter-final today by 4-16 to 0-10.

Cuala led the tie 0-9 to 0-8 at half-time, but St Mullins hit two crucial second-half goals to stun the Dublin outfit, including a late strike from James Doyle.

Carlow hurling star Martin Kavanagh also played a key role as St Mullins held on for an incredible one-point win despite two late points from Cuala frees.
