Turloughmore 0-16...............Gort 0-15

Turloughmore secured back to back titles at U16 A, with a hard fought victory over a determined Gort side in a most entertaining game.  After the All-Ireland Feile na nGael champions of 2010 dominated first half proceedings, they were put to the pin of their collar in the second half, when Gort, inspired by Ronan Burke and Aidan Helebert responded bravely but just came up short. 

With Conor Shaughnessy in execellant shooting form, Turloughmore led six points to two at the end of the first quarter, and by half time had increased their lead to eight points, ten points to four, as Gort were guilty of some poor wides, which reaching double figures by the end of the game.

On the resumption, Gort began to find their range, and by the 44th minute, trailed the reigning champions by five points, thirteen points to eight.  On 46 minutes, Ronan Duffy increased Turloughmores lead to six, before Gort hit a purple patch with five unanswered points in seven minutes through three Aidan Helebert frees and a point a peice from Eanna Melville and Jack Commins.  This left just a point between the sides with seven minutes to go and all to play for.  But, Gort could not get level as Jamie Holland and Aidan Helebert both swapped two pointed frees at the end.
