The U16 hurlers were also defeated last weekend in the premier 2 county final by Blarney. The game, initially schedule for Friday evening last was rescheduled to Carrigaline on Saturday evening due to adverse weather conditions and this had an unsettling effect on the players. Blarney took control of the game in the opening half and were in controll by half time. Newcestown, battled back in the second half, however the deficit accumulated in the opening half proved too much to claim back and Blarney finished winners by 4 points.
The Newcestown U16 panel was as follows:
