Dorans point lifts Leinster Senior colleges title for Knockbeg
A dramatic point from a 45 metre free deep into stoppage time from Tinryland footballer Colm Doran helped Knockbeg win their first Leinster Colleges S.F.title in 50 years in a dramatic final against famed St. Melís of Longford in Tullamore on Saturday last.
With St. Mels seeking their 30th title and Knockbeg not having won the cup since 1955 the odds were stacked against the Carlow college but Colm and his team mates rose to the challenge to bring this very prestigious title to Knockbeg and gain themselves a place in the All Ireland colleges semi final. Colm who lined out at centre forward contributed two points to the Knockbeg tally of 0-11.
