William Brennan Trophy 2010

Victory for Curragh!

The Curragh have won the William Brennan Trophy 2010. In the final of the knock-out competition, the Curragh were losing 2.5-0.5 from 3 games played on Monday 12th July and needed all three points in the last remaining games held on Saturday 17 July.
