Cathal’s class has Gaels in seventh Heaven

O’Gara Cup Final

Western Gaels 0-15 

Clan na nGael 1-5 


Frenchpark club Western Gaels proved too strong for their South Roscommon rials clan when they won this O’Gara Cup decider by a seven-point margin in Knockcroghery on Saturday last. 

  Cathal Cregg had the winners in ‘seventh Heaven’ as he produced a vital personal tally of seven points to spearhead his side to victory. 

  Cregg was well supported in the scoring stakes by Kevin Higgins, who scored four points in an impressive and influential display. 

  Clan struggled badly in the first half and never recovered from an eight-point deficit at that stage in the game (0-9 to 0-1). 

  In the closing stages of the match an outplayed Clan secured an element of respectability on the scoreboard when Jonathan Dunning netted – but it was not going to stop Western Gaels’ victory march.
