Adam Murtagh (Cuchulainns II)
A late inclusion in the starting line up, Murtagh performed brilliantly between the sticks. The only keeper in the two finals not to concede a goal.
Kieran McKernan (Middletown)
Had a solid game at corner back for Middletown and his ‘flucky’ goal in the second half sealed the deal for his side.
Fionn O’Callaghan (Craobh Rua)
The Craobh Rua defence was on top throughout the sixty minutes and O’Callaghan helped build that dominance.
Oisin O’Hare (Craobh Rua)
Double delight for O’Hare, fresh off the back of helping Carrickcruppen over the line last week, he put in another super man marking display to lead Craobh Rua to championship glory.
James King (Keady)
Helped Keady edge the physical stakes in the first half and his goal in the second period offered his side a lifeline.
Shea Gaffney (Middletown)
The leader of the pack in the Middletown defence, Gaffney played a key role in turning the tide in the second half.
Tiarnan Nevin (Middletown)
Knocked over one of the points of the game from the halfway line is a super performance at wing half back.
Tiarnan O’Hare (Craobh Rua)
Another superb final appearance from O’Hare who was awarded the Man of the Match, just as he was last year.
Paddy McBride (Middletown)
The midfielder picked up the Man of the Match award for his role in securing Middletown’s three in a row.
Fionntan Donnelly (Keady)
Only scored from the dead ball but it was Donnelly that had Keady in front at the break. Took his penalty brilliantly and finished with 1-6.
Dean Gaffney (Middletown)
Kept Middletown in touch with his accuracy from frees and drove over one from play near the end to help confirm the victory.
Sean Watters (Craobh Rua)
Was replaced before the end of the game but Watters was fantastic while on the field and chipped in with 0-2.
Chris Coulter (Cuchulainns)
Only came into the action at half time but finished as Cuchulainns top scorer with 1-2. His goal looked to have brought his side back into contention.
Ryan Lewis (Craobh Rua)
An outstanding performance in full forward from Lewis who was a constant threat and finished the game with 0-3.
Marty Moan (Middletown)
Tucked away his goal well and added a point to his personal tally. Must also get credit for his involvement in Middletown’s second major as well.
