Social Media Reaction – Cushendall celebrate title win

Cushendall celebrate Sunday's Antrim SHC final win

Cushendall celebrate Sunday’s Antrim SHC final win

Cushendall needed a strong second-half showing in order to win their second Antrim Championship in a row, beating Ballycastle 2-16 to 1-15 in Dunloy yesterday.

The Ruairi Ogs had a terrible start, failing to score in the first 12 minutes against a Ballycastle side who were bidding to win their first county title in 29 years.

By half time they were behind 1-11 to 0-5, Saul McCaughan got the Ballycastle goal.

Yet after a stern talking to from Cushendall boss John McKillop at half time, things changed in the second period as substitute Donal McNaughton got an early goal, and Conor Carson added another major. Christy McNaughton gave Cushendall the lead and they finished off the result with points from Neil McManus and Carson.

Cushendall meet the winners of Lisbellaw and Middletown in the Ulster Club SFC semi-final on Sunday October 18.

Here’s some reaction from Twitter:
