2021 Promotion

Saturday, July 24, 2021
Having skillfully negotiated the group stages in Division 2a this year, Our senior team qualified for the knockout stages as group winners. A quarter final tie against St Galls at home was the reward and thankfully we came out on top with a win which seemed to give the team a good deal of self belief before the semi final match up against Glenariffe.
The semi final was played in Glenravel and a large crowd gathered to see how far off the pace our team would be against our local rivals!!. How wrong they were! The team came out of the blocks like lightning and with Conleth Mc Neill on fire, scoring long range points for fun , we found ourselves with a comfortable lead for most of the match. Our supporters were nearly as surprised as the Glenariffe men by the superb performances all over the field. We had made it through to a final to decide the Div 2 champions and the boys in green from over the mountain awaited us. as in the semi final we were very much carrying the under dog label however our two previous wins, and the manner of them, against St galls and Glenariffe had left the team with a great spirit of confidence which they carried into the final against Carey. The final was played in Armoy on a great day for hurling and as in the semi Cushendun got  off to a flyer and once again led from the throw in. We never let Carey get any sort of a grip on the game at all and ran out comfortable winners and Divisoin two Champions 2021. Team and management will now decide if they take up the option of moving to Division 1.

Well done to Seamus, Brendan, Soddy and the team and thanks for giving us all a we lift during these tough times. Good luck in Championship.
