The St. Dominics manager John McGowan was smiling broadly as he accepted the congratulations of the Dominics supporters after the match was over. He said he was thrilled for the sake of the players. ‘I’m delighted for them. They were down and out after last year’s defeat but they vowed to get back into this year’s final and worked very hard to do so’ he said. John was also particularly pleased that they played so well to win the title. ‘It’s fantastic to win it playing good football. We had a meeting on Friday night last and we talked about a lot of things. We spoke about this club as being the home club of one of the greatest players that ever played the game (the late Jamesie Murray). I told them that he was looking down on them on Sunday and they should go out and express themselves and that’s what they did, thank God’ he commented. ‘I’m delighted for the club. They have a great underage structure and there are a lot of people who work very hard in St. Dominics and this title is for them’ he continued. The perceived lack of scoring power in the Dominics team was answered in no uncertain terms on Sunday, according to John. ‘We knew that we were not scoring as much (in previous rounds) as we would have liked but we worked hard on that aspect and we came good on the day’ concluded the happy Tarmonbarry man as he headed off to enjoy the celebrations.
