Remember the Game: The 2006 minor hurling final between Clough-Ballacolla and Camross Clough Ballacolla manager Tommy Kavanagh affords himself a smile as the game is about to finish and his side win the MHC A final against Camross.Picture: Alf Harvey. We’re going back a bit further in time, however, to 2006 when they met in the Laois minor final, a game in which Camross entered as champions having won the final the year before, amazingly for the first time in their history (they only won their second in 2017).But Clough-Ballacolla were in the process of bringing through a fine generation of players and they duly claimed their third minor title in five years – three years later they would claim their first senior since the Ballygeehan days almost 90 years earlier.On this occasion Clough-Ballacolla were 0-12 to 0-10 winners, captained by Darren Maher and with other current seniors like Willie Hyland, Tom Delaney and Willie Dunphy playing too.For Camross, current senior players Martin Burke, Darrell Dooley, Zane Keenan, Dean Delaney, Andrew Collier and Thomas Burke all started while Lorcan Burke was among the subs.We’ve delved into Alf Harvey’s archives to bring you the photos from that game and for the record the teams were:CLOUGH-BALLCOLLA: James McLoughney; Liam Meade, Ken Phelan, Niall Bergin; Tim Delaney, Darren Maher (captain), Lorcan Broderick; Tom Delaney, Willie Hyland; Aidan Doyle, Liam Hyland, Willie Dunphy; Shane Hyland, Joe Phelan, Michael Harrison.
