DOOLAN’S COW were crowned Mooney Cup winners for the third year in-a-row and for the fifth time in seven seasons following their two-nil win over last season’s runners-up at sun-drenched St Colman’s Park last Sunday morning.

The holders were quick to settle and after UCC’s man-of-the-match keeper Walter Messina made two excellent saves to deny Aaron Hennessy and Jamie Murphy, Murphy played in Hennessy for Cotter to slot the opener in the 14th minute.

Two minutes later, Murphy’s class told again when he cut in to beat Messina with his weaker right foot.

Ali Ahmidat and Dave Foley failed to trouble Scanlon from distance to leave the Cow basking in further glory and on the trail for a fourth quadruple.
