The title challenge went down to the wire with Sarsfields needing a win on the final day after second-placed Ballyboden St Enda’s received a walkover from Thomas Davis.

And their quality again shone through as they stormed to 21-point victory that saw them over the line.

 “We are delighted to win the league” said Lucan Sarsfields manager David Cullen.

“At the start of year at Minor level you compete for two trophies and, while the championship is priority, winning the league is a great achievement for the lads” he added.
