*Scariff duo Patrick Crotty & Keelan Hartigan. 

SCARIFF’S Patrick Crotty captained the UL Fresher Hurlers to All-Ireland glory on Wednesday night.

UL fended off the challenge of DCU in the All-Ireland Division 1 hurling final winning on a scoreline of 1-20 0-11.

Managed by Cratloe’s Joe McGrath, the UL side was captained by Clare senior hurler Patrick Crotty who chipped in with 0-01 from centre-forward. His clubmate Keelan Hartigan also added 0-01 from wing-forward while Clonlara’s Colm O’Meara and Conner Hegarty of Inagh/Kilnamona both scored 0-01 each when introduced at corner forward and wing forward respectively. Oran Cahill of Éire Óg was part of the panel, he is out of action with a shoulder injury picked up while lining out in an internal training match for Clare’s senior hurlers.

Ronan Keane of Éire Óg is the Gaelic Games officer for UL and has basked in a historic season for the third level institute. The latest piece of silverware seals a league and championship double for the McGrath managed side while it goes alongside the Fitzgibbon and intermediate championships claimed by UL in recent weeks.

Limerick senior hurlers, Colin Coughlan, Cathal O’Neill and Adam English were among the high-profile names featuring for the star-studded UL as well as Tipperary midfielder Conor Cadell.
