Mágh Cuilinn were in the unique position of having the opportunity of putting the disappointment of defeat in the 2020 Final behind them only three short months later. While Killimor made them fight all the way and almost delivered another disappointment, Niall Mannion's willingness to throw his body where it hurt and dive full length to scoop the ball into the net with the last act of the game, brought joy and disbelief to those who might have given up hope. When Killimor converted a free after a ruck, where any amount of frees could have been awarded in either direction, in the last of the four notified minutes of injury time; despair gripped the supporters lifted by the way the side fought back to level terms. The players thankfully did not despair and when their first attack was rebuffed, goalkeeper John Faherty, calmly handpassed to his corner back Eanna Davoren, who picked out Man-of-the Match, Eanna Noone, who in turn launched into the square, where Mannion's dive to get the vital touch scored a perfect 10 from every Moycullen judge watching.
