Celbridge were crowned senior hurling champions of Kildare after defeating a disappointing Naas side at St Conleth’s Park, this afternoon.

In a game that never reached the expected heights, Celbridge were dominant throughout and led 0-10 to 0-3 at the break.

Naas did improve somewhat in the second half but never put any real pressure on Celbridge with the Naas goal coming in the 62 minute from their only scorer on the day, Jack Sheridan.

Final score line Celbridge 0-17 Naas 1-8.

Scorers: Celbridge, Gerry Keegan 0-10 (6 frees, 65), Billy White 0-2, Patrick Curtin 0-1, Leo Quinn 0-1, Sam White 0-1, Thomas Fitzgerald 0-1, Mark Moloney 0-1.

Naas, Jack Sheridan 1-8 (1-7 from frees).
