The final of the football championship was played in Inistioge on the evening of Friday 5th of May against Graiguenamanagh.  Graigue played with the assistance of the wind in the first half and used the advantage to their benefit in a first half where Tullogher/Rosbercon were under constant pressure. Danny Glennon scored the first Tullogher point and this was followed by a well taken penalty by Jamie Lyng which kept Tullogher in the game.  Our final score in the first half was a well taken goal by Danny Glennon, with the half time score reading Tullogher/Rosbercon 2-1, Graiguenamanagh 1-9.

Tullogher began the second half in determined fashion and used the wind to apply constant pressure to the Graigue goal.  The major scores came for Tullogher as a reward for the pressure that they were exerting, scored by Danny and Marty Murphy.  Heading into the last ten minutes the game was there for the taking, unfortunately it was Graigue, who with a fortuitous goal, got on top for the closing stages and sealed a well-earned win with a further two goals and three points.  The final score was Tullogher/Rosbercon 4-4, Graiguenamanagh 4-12.

Congratulations to Graiguenamanagh and well done to the Tullogher/Rosbercon lads for their part in a competitive and entertaining game.  Well done also to the team mentors, Basil and Damien, for their effort in bringing the lads to a final.

Many thanks also to Paddy Ryan's, Listerlin, for hosting and feeding the team, mentors, families and supporters after the match.
