Offering her congratulations, the Mayor said: “It is very special for a county to win an All-Ireland title and I would like to offer everyone involved in this double success my very warmest congratulations.

“Sport plays an important role in our local communities. It promotes social skills, teamwork, self-esteem and discipline and we cannot underestimate the positive impact it has on our young people.
