Sunday September 16th.
This was probably the most exciting and thrilling county final in which the club had been involved in so far. Giving a brilliant display of hurling,the Glen were 5 goals ahead after 25 minutes having played with a gale force wind. Just before half time, Carrigdhoun broke through for two goals to reduce the arrears and give them great heart for the second half.

Excitement reached fever pitch as the second half progressed. Carrigdhoun reduced the arrears bit by bit and the Glen backs were performing heroically to hold on to the title. Outstanding was team captain Paddy O'Donovan, who gave one of his greatest displays, and of course, Ring.Others to shine were John Lyons, Sean O'Brien and Frank Casey. Tom Logue, who was drafted on following an injury to Din Joe Buckley, more than merited his place. The forwards all spoarkled and everyone of them shared in the scoring. Charlie Tobin and Jack Buckley were again in top form and Ring scored some remarkable points from all angles. Joe Kelly, who had shone in some earlier games was unavailable having returned to college and must surely be regarded as one of the unluckiest club hurlers as he never played in a county final.

This then was another outstanding victory for Glen Rovers. Young players were now providing the backbone of the team and the future looked good. Every player in this team deserved his honour, and congratulations also to Carrigdhoun on an unforgettable performance.

Glen Rovers: C.Ring 0-6; J.Lynam 0-1; J.Buckley 1-1; J.Hartnett 1-0; C.Tobin 1-1; C.O'Flaherty 1-0; D.Twomey 0-1.
Carrigdhoun: R.O'Regan 0-2; D.Dunne 2-0; R.Andrews 1-0 ; M.Herlihy 1-1; J.Barrett 1-0.
