THE Nationalist Cup is staying in Carlow town for a second year after Éire Óg clinched back-to-back victories in Sunday’s senior football championship final at Netwatch Cullen Park.

The clash was not one for the purists, as the champions accounted for Palatine by 0-9 to 0-5. In a game of fine margins, three second-half points by substitute Niall Quinlan proved crucial, as Palatine were held to just a single point for the entire second-half.
