Drangan man Philip Lyons and Lattin native Pat O’Halloran were two very happy Tipperary men in Pairc Tailteann, Navan last Sunday afternoon.

Both have been Kildalkey hurling club members for a number of years since they settled in that part of south west County Meath, and were delighted to see The Village claim its sixth county senior title, after they beat Kiltale 0-18 to 2-6 in the final.

Pat, who is joint manager, has led Kildalkey to five of those victories. Pat’s son Brian O’Halloran was also a member of the victorious Meath All-Ireland minor football squad this year.
