Sligo are All Ireland junior champs
2010 GAA All Ireland Junior Final
Game played at Pearse Stadium Galway
Sligo overcame Kerry in their All Ireland Junior Final game yesterday on a score of Sligo 2-10 to Kerry’s 1-07. A magnificent victory which will offset the disappointment of a one point defeat in the Connacht senior Final against Roscommon.
It is a truly fantastic achievement, taking the title in style from no less a team than Kerry, who last year won the senior title, after narrowly beating Sligo seniors in the All Ireland qualifers.
A day for sweet revenge, decades in planning, executed in style over the 2010 campaign. Read more
