Pat O'Brien Cup Final

The first silverware of the season is up for grabs on Sunday.  Wolfe Tones and Aidan McAnespies will contest a final that holds a lot of promise.  This will also be the first game for both teams on the main field, so the game might take a few minutes for the teams to settle.  The Tones have had a couple of stiff challenges heading into the final.  A hard fought win over Donegal followed by a victory over Connemara Gaels in last week's semi final have tested the Tones and should stand to them on Sunday.  McAnespies on the other hand have essentially had a 2 week layoff following their victory over Christopher's in the first round, it will be important for them not to allow the Tones a fast start.  Both teams have game changers in the squad.  Marty Farrell for the Tones and Colm McCrory for McAnespies will be the ones for the other side to keep a tight rein on.  A South Boston rivalry between teams full of quality players should  provide an early season treat.
