It is a fantastic achievement for a school to reach a county final but to reach the top final in both hurling and football in the same year is truly remarkable. Great credit is due to all the players, their parents, their coaches and their teachers. Best of luck lads. We are all very proud of you in St Dominic’s GAA Club.
