County Minor Football Champions

Douglas were crowned Cork county premier minor football champions last night following their 0-11 to 0-04 victory over St. Finbarr's at Páirc uí Rinn.

For the past three seasons, Douglas have reached the final only to lose each time after a replay, twice to last night opponents St. Finbarr's and once to Ballincollig. At last year’s AGM selector Kevin Dempsey remarked that after a series of disappointments the team were on a mission to win the county title this year.

Well done to all the players who have put in so much hard work and effort during the season. And to the management team, Congratulations to Eddie, Ben, Mick, Denis, Kevin, Tim, Jim and all involved. Mission accomplished !
