Barley House Wolves win Junior C Hurling, Tir na nOg win Orla Benson Cup

Barley House Wolves 2-6 Portland 1-4

Barley House Wolves Captain Ray Valas.
The storied Barley House Wolves of Concord New Hampshire won the first Junior C Hurling championship held in the Northeast.  The team was formed by a unit of the New Hampshire National Guard following a tour of duty in Afghanistan five years ago.  There were some great performances for the boys from Concord. Denis Trainor pulled off some great saves in goals, and the at the other end the goals came from Rory O’Mahony. Eddie Clements literally came off the plane from Kuwait to line out at center back, and there were strong performances from Darragh Madden, Sean McCarty, and Ryan Brown. 

Tir na nOg 3-14 Boston Shamrocks 1-6

Tir na nOg completed a sweep of trophies in the ladies competiton by winning the Orla Benson Cup on Saturday.  The Boston Shamrocks put up a brave performance but were unable to match their rivals.  The Brighton ladies will be heading to San Francisco to represent the Boston division at Senior Football level and to hopefully bring a championship back to the North East.
