Kilmore came out as the leaders of the ring when they defeated St Fintans 6:2 at the Brawl in the Hall in Bridgetown College sports hall.
The showdown between the two neighbouring parishes was organised as a joint fundraiser for the two clubs and proved to be a huge success. It saw twenty fighters representing Kilmore GAA, camogie and women's GAA and St Fintans GAA face off in ten bouts.
Two of the fights were all Kilmore affairs. Andrew Boyd defeated Thomas Carley while Denis Kenny saw success over Liam Shannon in these bouts. However, the highlight of the night was undoubtedly the women's bout between Kelsea Morris and Julie Coakley, which was the closest fight of the night. Though both girls fought a tough battle, Kilmore's Kelsea came out on top.
Over 600 people bought tickets for the event in Bridgetown College. Although proceeds have yet to be counted, Fintan O' Reilly of Kilmore GAA Club expects that the final figure will be somewhere around €20,000.
'It was a brilliant night and went much better than we expected,' he added. 'We would like to thank Bridgetown College for letting us use their venue and Kevin Cassidy who facilitated us in every way possible.'
