Last Sunday, Abbeyside defeated Dungarvan in the County Senior Hurling Championship. This week's photo brings us back to the 1955 first round meeting between the sides. Noel McGovern leads his charges in the pre-match parade behind the Scouts' Band at Fraher Field. A comprehensive 5-9 to 0-2 win over the Old Boro and later victories over Ballyduff and Tourin set the Villagers on their way to their first County Senior Hurling Final.
