This Friday night March 9th sees a local amalgamation of Atlantic Aviation Group and Molex (AAG/Molex) take their place in this years All Ireland Junior Interfirm hurling final in Sixmilebridge at 6:00 p.m. against Ulster Champions Creagh Concrete.
The AAG/Molex combination have come through seven tight games to take their place in the final. The Clare Champions field players from Clare, Tipperary, Limerick, Cork and Sligo representing twenty different clubs. Team Manager Tony McGann said, “We have a great spread of players from near and far. The team is built on a back bone of Sixmilebridge players who were part of their Clare county success last year. We have a great team spirit which has seen us prevail through some very difficult games. The standard of this competition is unbelievable, especially considering the time of year the games are ran.”
Bainisteoir McGann said it has been a real panel effort to get this far, “We have had great commitment from the thirty-four players we have used to date. The Munster final win, in particular, saw us down six of our regular team but we still managed to get over a gallant Tipperary Education Training Board after extra time.”
He continued “We are delighted to welcome Creagh Concrete to Clare for Friday night’s game. We are well aware of the quality of their team especially following their brilliant win over Leinster champions Romaquip of Offaly. We are hoping that a big crowd will come out to support their club mates in what is, for most players, a once in a lifetime chance to play in an All Ireland final. I am sure it will be a cracker.”
A special match day programme will be on sale at the game with all proceeds going to the Irish Cancer Society.
