Leinster Leader 15 November 1958

Minor Hurling Championship
Army Apprentice School 10-2; Éire Óg 0-0.
The Minor Hurling Final at Newbridge also proved a big disappointment as Éire Óg were no match for a bigger and stronger Army Apprentice School side, who have a very well balanced selection.
Éire Óg were badly hit by defections, as some of their star players have returned to Colleges and could not be made available on Sunday, while a few more have emigrated from the area. Consequently they were forced to call on a number of players, who naturally, found the occasion too big for them.
Outstanding for the winners were: Sean Buckley, Frank McEvoy, Seamus Lucey, Martin Phelan, Paddy Reilly, P. Kilgannon and Sean Fox, while Éire Óg were best served by Jim Fields, Johnny Hannon, Peter Sharpe, Charles Dunny and Seamus Sullivan. Referee was P. Fanning, Coill Dubh.
