 Clonmel Og  dominated this game from first to last with a first class display of speed, strength, counter attacks, and lethal scoring ability.

The game looked like men versus boys with all 15 Clonmell Og players in a different league with the only competitive area the aerial dual with Willie Morgan and Johnny Cagney with the former just about edging the possession wins.

The opening goal  was a long range shot from Cian O’Sullivan that went all the way into the Fethard net and setting up a pattern of things to com.

Those who shone for Clonmel Og were Conor Anderson, Ciaran Barrett, Graham Quinn, John Cagney, Eoin Fallon, Chris O’Gorman, Matthew Norris, Conor Arrigan, Aaron Arrigan and Cian O’Sullivan.

For a gallant Fethard, Ian O’Connor and Willie Morgan held their own.
