Intriguing Mullingar derby awaits

The first ever all-Mullingar County Final will take place next Sunday and defending champions St Loman’s Mullingar are putt­ing their title on the line against their neighbours and great rivals, Mull­ingar Shamrocks, in Cusack Park at 3.30pm.

Luke Dempsey’s St Loman’s side are chasing a precious four-in-a-row, a feat achieved by their Springfield nemesis back in 1992, ’93, ’94 and ’95.

In another intriguing backdrop, current Mullingar Shamrocks boss Ned Moore captained his beloved club to glory in the latter three years of that famous four-in-a-row triumph, and will now be doing all in his power to ensure the Lakepoint Park club don’t match that record.
