Truagh in All-Ireland

The history of the Truagh Club will always have the 2013 Intermediate Club Championship as a highlight and a special section will be reserved if they can now complete the task and win the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship in Croke Park on February 9th 2014. What an occasion for the club and what an experience for the players and mentors and we wish them ever success. The semi-final played on Sunday, January 26th had to go to extra time to get a result and the Truagh lads dug deep and got the scores to put the game beyond the Geraldines from Louth. Perhaps they should have finished off the game during normal time. They played against a strong wind in the first half but went into the break with a 0 - 7 to 0 - 4 advantage. They did not make use of the wind in the second half and allowed their opponents to regroup and draw level. It was heart-stopping stuff for their supporters but they made certain of victory during the extra time and finished with 2 - 10 to 1 - 9 scoreline. Well done to all involved and go the whole way now.
