Glenealy is my club Keeper. We came within a whisker of being Leinster Intermediate Champions in 2018 in Nowlan Park. 0-19 1-15. 25/1 we were win. Only for Kevin Kelly's 10 frees and some bad refereeing from a ref from Dublin called Sugrue we'd have left with the cup instead of Ballyraggett.

It was in 2017. What's the 10 frees got to do with it? Glenealy's Jonathan O'Neill scored 8 points from frees. Frees are given for fouls. Solution? Don't foul.

I think I remember that, was that the match that the Ballyraggett lads were photographed in the pub with their hurls ?

2017 indeed . The frees awarded in injury time were very suspect and definitely went with the home side. Better side on the day lost. Ballyraggett recognised how lucky they were at the final whistle.
