Title ends eight years of hurt - McKeague thumbnailDunloy’s Kevin and Keelan Molloy proudly show off the Volunteer Cup following their side’s victory over Cushendall in the Antrim Senior Hurling Championship final.

A DELIGHTED Dunloy captain James McKeague has warned the club's rivals that the Cuchullain's will be hard to put down now that they have ended an eight year wait for championship success.
