AFTER lifting their first Kerry U21 title in 35 years, the victorious Causeway team brought the cup to the graveside of one of their former teammates, Kevin Diggin, who died earlier this year.

Causeway beat St. Brendan’s Ardfert by a  0–18 to  0–9 in Austin Stack Park on Sunday, to end an incredibly long wait for an U21 for a club of their stature in the county.

In a touching move, the players went to Kevin’s graveside with the cup as can be seen by the Facebook post below from Barnastooka Hurling on Monday which reads;

“What an Fantastic Picture this is, members of the Causeway Under 21 Hurlers that won the Kerry Under 21 Hurling Title for the first time in 35 years yesterday, pictured here at the grave of a Former Causeway underage hurler and Best Friend from an early age 20 year old Kevin Diggin who sadly died earlier this year. As a Proud Causeway hurling man he would have appreciated that greatly and been a Proud man today. Lovely gesture, Never Forget a Fallen Brother, Now that’s what you call a Classy act ‪#‎Respect‬”
