Premier Intermediate Hurling Game of 2020 – Kildimo-Pallaskenry v Mungret St Pauls – Final

They may have had a more entertaining contest in the group stages but the victory for Kildimo-Pallaskenry over Mungret St Pauls was a stunning one for so many reasons.

As always, the Premier Intermediate grade throws up some exciting and tight contests and this decider was no different.

Kildimo-Pallaskenry continued the 2020 trend of losing finalists from the previous year coming out on top in this year’s hurling finals on a 0-22 o 1-13 scoreline.

The sides were evenly matched on paper before throw in and this game was no different on the field as they went in at the break at 0-8 apiece having been level on five occasions.

Mungret bagged the game’s only goal in the early stages of the second half when Patrick Begley finished after being set up by Paul O’Brien.

The response was swift by Kildimo-Pallaskenry with efforts from Barry O’Connell (2), Liam Griffin and Paidi Hartigan putting them in front.

Mungret fired two points to go back ahead themselves but Kyle Hayes ensured that the sides were again all square at the second water break.

Kildimo-Pallaskenry with Hayes and O’Connell to the fore, dominated the final quarter with nine of the last 11 points to earn victory and promotion to senior club hurling for the first time.
