Magnificent Moate CS reach their first Leinster senior football final


Showing commendable resolve and no little skill, a well organised Moate CS side scored a four-point win over Wexford’s Good Counsel at Stradbally last Wednesday to reach the Leinster Colleges Senior Football ‘A’ final for the first time.

Not since the heady days of Carmelite Colleges football have Moate possessed a team of this calibre and they clearly put a huge amount into this titanic semi-final. All their forensic preparation paid off at the end of an absorbing match where they succeeded in denying the New Ross side a goal, which was absolutely crucial.
