Kilmacud Crokes win 2016 All Ireland Club Hurling 7s Title

Kilmacud Crokes win 2016 All Ireland Hurling 7s title

The Kilmacud Crokes All Ireland Hurling 7s tournament, now in its 44th year and sponsored by Applegreen was another action packed exhibition of skill with the hurl and sliotar.

A strong contingent of Tipperary clubs contested the knockout stages including last year’s winners Borris-Ileigh who lost out to fellow Tipp club Upperchurch Drombane in the quarter-finals. The semi-final pairings saw Upperchurch Drombane defeat Limerick’s Adare to set up a final decider with hosts Kilmacud Crokes who reached their second final in three years with a 2-15 v 3-06 win over Toomevara.

In an epic final with 17 goals, it was Kilmacud Crokes who secured their second ever All Ireland Hurling 7s title. Leading by 10pts at the break the Dublin hosts withstood an incredible fight back from their Tipperary opponents to win on a final scoreline of 7-19 (40pts) v 10-07 (37pts) with Oisin O’Rourke excellent throughout scoring 5 goals for the 2016 Champions.
