Douglas played St. Finbarr's in the Cork County Senior Hurling Championship last night.
The introduction of James Moylan midway through the second half proved the turning point. The Douglas supersub immediately won possession and set up Mark Collins for a point and then he scored a cracking goal. Aaron Ward added another goal before the final whistle.
Douglas 2-16 St. Finbarr's 1-10. Well done to players, mentors and backroom boys.
Tonight the Senior Hurlers take on the Barrs in their second championship game in Cloughduv, throw in @7.30pm. Having lost out to Midleton in the opening round that squad are looking to kick start their challenge against our local rivals.
It would be great to see a large crowd turn out again to cheer on the squad in this important game.

Senior Hurling Championship
Douglas v. St Finbarrs (7.30pm, Cloughduv )
As the hype, elation and indeed disappointment begin to fade into the memory bank it is time to reflect on what proved to be a magnificent event for Douglas GAA Club .
Taking part in events such as this are a massive under taking and the amount of planning and preparation required are enormous. What was abundantly obvious to all who looked on from the sideline was that Douglas GAA had left nothing to chance. This level of preparation was the result of many, many people and groups who contributed in their own way to making it a success.
Congratulations to Douglas' David Hanrahan, who won another Munster title last night in Fraher field, Dungarvan. David was in goal for the Cork junior footballers as they beat Waterford to be crowned Munster Junior Football champions for the 5th time in 9 years.
This is to add to the U21 Munster title won earlier this year.
