Mike O’Halloran reports on the Kerry Junior Hurling Final at John Mitchels GAA Grounds on Saturday…

Ballyheigue 3-07

St Pats East Kerry 1-12

The winning Ballyheigue team.

Ballyheigue are the Kerry Junior Hurling County Champions for 2019 they overcame St Pats in the final played in John Mitchels GAA grounds on Saturday.

Ballyheigue led 3-04 to 1-05 at halftime while playing with a stiff wind. I thought that maybe St Pats might use that wind to their advantage in the second half and with the help of the wind some handy frees they fought their way back to within one point of the winners.

St Pats won the second half by seven points to three but even though the ref played nearly eight minutes extra St Pats could not manufacture the point to draw the game. Paudie Dineen the Kerry Hurling Officer presented the cup to Ballyheigue captain Alan Lawlor.
