‘Pearses are county hurling champions
Four Roads’ 10th Roscommon SFC final appearance in-a-row has ended in disappointment as Padraig Pearses have taken home the silverware from Athleague.
After finishingon the wrong end of the scoreline in seven finals since 2002, Pearses finally have something to celebrate after prevailing on a scoreline of 1-20 to 1-13.
The winners enjoyed an 0-11 to 0-6 advantage at the break but James Fitzmaurice’s 34th minute goal brought Four Roads back to within two points.
Oisin Kelly responded at the other end of the field on the three quarter hour mark and, despite losing the services of Cathal Kelly to a red card in the 56th minute, Padraig Pearses eased to a seven point victory.
