There were incredible scenes at the final whistle at O’Moore Park in Portlaoise this afternoon as Moorefield claimed the AIB Leinster SFC club football title.
The Newbridge side edged a one-point victory against St Loman’s of Mullingar with a final scoreline of 1-14 to 2-10. Kevin Murnaghan scored the winning point for the Kildare side.
Moorefield had an excellent first half, with a solid defence and the side winning a lot of ball around the midfield. The Kildare men led by three points at half time, with a scoreline of 0-7 to 0-4, but St Loman’s started strongly in the second period, levelling the game with 37 minutes gone.
Loman's took control on the resumption and in a blistering eight minute spell, first off all drew level before a Ken Casey goal saw them take a three point lead.
