There was a huge Mooncoin presence in Croke Park on Saturday but they came away somewhat disappointed having suffered just a one point loss to a fine Mayfield side in the AIB Junior Final. Mooncoin found themselves 6 points in arrears at one stage but bravely fought back to draw level with time almost up. But an injury time point from Man of the Match Nicky Kelly saw the Cork side home on a final score 2-16 to 1-18. Although obviously disappointed Mooncoin can reflect on a very satisfactory year and look forward to life in the intermediate grade in Kilkenny in 2017.
