The Heath seemed to have leaders in every line, and it started at full-back with the inspirational captain David Bergin. A blend of youth and experience made The Heath a solid side, and it made them the overall better footballing side.Ballyfin reeled them back within three, looking like a goal was their only hope and it was the Trumera hurler Cathal Brophy who answered their prayers with a nicely taken goal.But it would be two wise head that would undo Ballyfin’s hard work, as the then 42 year-old Denis Lalor made the way for Eoin Keane to float over the winner and slashing Ballyfin’s hopes of claiming their second title.SCORERS – THE HEATH: Barry McNamee 1-2, Nathan Carpenter 0-3, Eoin Keane, 0-1, Brian Murphy 0-1 BALLYFIN: James Finn 0-4, Cathal Brophy 1-1, John Joe McHugh 0-1.THE HEATH: Andy Lambe; Billy Hennessy, David Bergin, Michael Lenihan; Conor Bergin, Emmett Ging, Bob Delaney; Donal Bigley, Denis Lalor; Padraig Whelan, Johnny Browne, Nathan Carpenter; Eoin Keane, Brian Murphy, Barry McNamee.
