TY student, Daragh Brady, wrote the following a more detailed description of the win:

Bush Post Primary etched their name onto the Lennon Cup trophy for the first time in the school’s history after grinding out victory over St Mary’s, Drogheda in Darver on Thursday night.

St Mary’s dominated the nervy opening exchanges but Bush replied with three scores from the excellent Cian Connor. Bush were wasteful with several wides as both teams tried to find their feet, but then they increased pressure on the kickout with Gerard White and Aaron Carolan dominating the midfield and Patrick Johnson winning much of the breaking ball. The score was 0-3 to 0-2 to Bush at the half time interval.

The second half began with Bush driving at the Mary’s defence. Patrick Johnson and Ian Arnold set the pace down the right hand side. A fantastic point by Enda O’Neill, along with points from Cian Connor and Patrick Johnson, put Bush in a brilliant position coming into the final twenty minutes with a score of 0-6 to 0-2 to Bush. There was also some excellent defending from Peter Lynch and Ronan McBride while Bush kept pushing to secure the victory. Bush did come under some pressure when Niall Brady was forced into an exceptional save to keep his deserved clean sheet. Further scores from Connor and Johnson finished what was a fascinating game.

The Bush finally won the Lennon Cup. It’s the first time since it was made in 1970. A 48 year wait! Managers Paul Malone and William Carry are very proud of the team.
