Eddie said that he was overjoyed to win a senior championship and said it was a dream come true.
Chairman of Kilkenny County Board of the GAA, Jimmy Walsh spoke eloquently of the rich heritage of the club and the esteem with which it was held and he regaled the audience with a defeat he and his club, Windgap, suffered at the hands of Dicksboro and recalled the kindness of the late Ted Carroll, the county secretary.
