It took over 80 minutes of hurling for Dunnamaggin to overccome Cloughduv of Cork in the AIB All-Ireland Junior S/F in Fraher Field, Dungarvan on Sunday. Dunnamaggin started the brightest running up a 0-6 to 0-3 lead after 15 minutes, this form continued and they led by six points at half-time, 0-11 to 0-5. On the restart Cloughduv began to get a grip on the game and it was their two second half goals, the second of which arrived right at full time which forced the game to extra-time. Extra-time was a close affair throughout with both sides exchanging points and it was the bare minimum that seperated the teams when the final whislte blew after over 80 minutes of hurling, the score 0-23 to 2-16 to the Kilkenny sides favour. An All-Ireland Final now awaits Dunnamaggin with full fixture details to be confirmed soon.
