ULSTER INTERMEDIATE CLUB FINAL 2019
Three points from the irrepressible Tommy Freeman and a brace from the lightning-fast Padraig McMahon helped to bolster Magheracloone their 0-8 to 0-6 interval advantage with Daniel Kerr, Seamus Og Mulgrew and Ronan Nugent epitomising Galbally’s resistance. It was in the 49th minute of the tussle that Magheracloone put one hand firmly on the trophy when McMahon scorched in from the right wing before planting the ball past a helpless Liam Og MacAuley in the Galbally goal. From then on, Magheracloone began to play with a swagger, McMahon and Allan Kieran nullifying a superb brace of points by Galbally substitute Michael Murphy and another from Seamus Og Mulgrew.
