Coca Cola GAA Feile na nGael Div 3 Hurling Final

Castletown-Geoghegan ( Westmeath)...........5-8      Ruan (Clare)...............1-2

By Michael O Connor.

A powerful start by Westmeath side Castletown-Geoghegan laid the foundations for a comfortable win over a game Ruan side from Clare. A trio of first half goals from Liam Cassidy (2) and Paddy Doody set the winners on the way even though Ruan had half a dozen goal chances that went abegging in a half time scoreline of (3-4) to (0-1) that did scant justice to the efforts of the Clare side. Castletown-Geoghegan continued their dominance in the second half with early scores from Liam Cassidy, Cormac Deegan, the excellent Paddy Doody (goal), Johnny Bermingham and Shane Clavin before Conal O hAinifein scored a goal from a free. A late goal from sub Andrew Corbett  sealed the win for the Westmeath outfit as the final whistle brought huge celebrations for the last Westmeath support.
