Clara completed the League and Championship double when they duly accounted for a brave O'Loughlin Gaels effort in the St Canices Credit Union Senior Final in front of over 7,000 patrons in Nowlan Park on Sunday. The sides were level 1-9 to 1-9 at half time but a goal from Conor O'Shea 5 mins into the second half proved decisive. The city side tried their utmost but they could never pull back the lead and a resolute defensive effort by the Clara side ensured victory in the end. Final Score Clara 2-12 O'Loughlin Gaels 1-13.

At the second time of asking Bennettsbridge captured the Michael Lyng Motors Intermediate Title after another thrilling encounter with St Patricks of Ballyraggett in Nowlan Park on Saturday. And to crown a fantastic weekend for the club they accounted for Coill Dubh of Kildare 24 hours later in the AIB Leinster Club Intermediate Championship. They now progress to the Leinster semi-final but probably more important for this proud club they will play in the Kilkenny Senior Championship in 2016.
