Urhan secured their first Beara Minor title in six years on Sunday beating Glengarriffe on a scoreline of 5 – 14 to 4 – 7 at Droum.

Urhan had a dream start with captain Luke Daly finding the net within the first minute and Conor Lowney following up on three minutes and Kevin Hanley completing the trio at five minutes. Sean O Sullivan tacked on a point to make it 3-1 to no score. To their credit Glengarriffe were not going down without a fight and the next ten minutes saw the Glen forwards score two goals in quick succession. Game on.

The remainder of the first half saw both sides trading scores and wasting chances. Both sets of backs were tested during this period, Cormac Shea and Niall Dwyer kept their focus, clearing their lines and feeding the ball forward.  Urhan finished the half with two fine scores, Conor Lowney taking a 45 and passing to Sean O Sullivan who set up Declan O Neill for his first point, their last point was a well taken free by Sean O Sullivan for a foul on Conor Lowney. Half time score Glen 3-5 to Urhan 4 – 5.

The second half started well with Conor Lowney now playing at midfield winning the throw in, passing to Declan O Neill who found Sean O Sullivan to tap over a point. Ten minutes into the second half Glen again found the net and at this stage were only a point adrift. Urhan continued to have the majority of possession but were not registering scores with over elaborate plays. Despite their best efforts Glengarriffe did not score again after the goal and allowed Urhan to add to their tally including three points from frees.

Captain Luke Daly was presented with the Cormac O Driscoll Cup by Paudie B. O Sullivan, Chairperson of the Beara Board Fixtures Committee. Luke paid tribute to the Glen team and thanked the Castletownbere club officials.
