O’Loughlin Gaels added a Féile Peil na nÓg title to the Division 1 hurling title they won last weekend when they defeated Wolfe Tones of Shannon, Co. Clare in the Division 5 Final of Féile Peil na nÓg in Cork.
In a very exciting and skilful game with both defenses dominant, scores were scarce in the opening half at the end of which O’Loughlin’s led by a single point, 0-2 to 0-1.
