Under 14's Claim County Title
On Sunday 23rd October the Crokes under 14 hurlers added the Dublin County Championship to the All-Ireland and Dublin Feile titles already won this year.
This was a gripping encounter with Crokes having the better of the first half exchanges, going in 0-6 to 0-2 ahead at half time. Shortly into the second half the Stillorgan boys added a point but from there on it was backs to the wall as St Vincent's piled on the pressure pegging back the Crokes lead with a series of unanswered points. With five minutes remaing the Marino side goaled to go two ahead. Showing the character which has been the hallmark of this team, Crokes stuck to their task and were rewarded with a goal from man of the match Sean McGrath with a minute remaining. While that proved to be the last score of the game Crokes had to endure five minutes of extra time during which Vincent's recorded three wides under pressure before emerging victorious.
