Eamonn Dillon and the Dublin Hurlers Just Fall Short
WFL’s Eamonn Dillon scored a goal in Dublin’s All-Ireland SHC Round 1 Qualifier last Saturday but it wasn’t enough as Cork advance to the next round!
Alan Cadogan scored 1-05 as Cork advanced following a stiff test from 14-man Dublin at Páirc Uí Rinn. The Rebels progressed on a three-point winning margin in the end, the Dubs having played the final 40-plus minutes of the game with 14 men following a second booking for wing-back Chris Crummey coming up to half-time.
Eamonn’s goal helped draw the sides level with just a few minutes remaining but Cork pushed on in the final moments to progress.
