Graignamanagh 2-11 Muckalee 1-6

Graignamanagh won ther first adult county championship in any grade since 1985 as they ran out easy winners in the end against a very gallant Muckalee in the junior football championship in Nowlan park today.We started best and went 2points up after 5 minutes but Muckalee responded and took a 1point lead before a dinger from corner forward Sean Ryan smashed into the net and this helped us to lead 1-5 to 0-4 at half time.We started the second half well to lead 1-8 to 0-4 ,however a goal and 2points from placed balls for Muckalee left only 2points as the difference and fans were wondering was the Nowlan park hoodoo about to strike again.2 points from Padraig Whelan and a goal from top scorer Neil Coady managed to steady the ship and we just about deserved our moment of glory in the park
