St Mullins picked up the first piece of adult silverware handed out so far this year.
Captain Michael Walsh lifted the Bolger Cup after they bested Bagenalstown Gaels 2-16 to 1-14.
Much like the Carlow intercounty team at the weekend, St. Mullins stormed out of the gates, and with ten minutes gone it was 0-05 to 0-01. It was a lead that they never gave up, leading at halftime 1-11 to 0-07 points, thanks to a goal from Oisin Ryan.
Bagenalstown Gaels would not go down without a fight and really came out swinging in the second half. Reducing the deficit to just one score, with the goal being the decisive score 52 minutes in. Only three minutes later, it became an even closer game after Craig Doyle put the ball in the back of the net, with now a solitary point separating the side coming to the end.
With the game in the balance, St Mullins hit a fatal strike. Paddy Walsh on 63 minutes eased all concerns that they may relinquish their lead by grabbing the third goal of the game, making the game 2-15 to 0-13 points.
