Last weekend saw the final of the Donal & Rose Younge Mid Under 21 A hurling final played with Thurles Sarsfields emerging victors by a scoreline of 2-28 to 0-17. In what was a close first half Thurles Sarsfields pulled away in the second half to run out winners. Captain Kevin Dunne collected the cup from Mid Chairman Joe Kennedy and Mid Secretary Sally Young. They now face Cappawhite/ Sean Treacys in the County semi final on Saturday in Golden at 2pm.
