Dublin City HC win their 1st IOHA Cup

They rounded off their group games with the necessary victory over Ireland M18 20-13.

On Sunday they faced Dublin Internationals 2nd team and a facile victory (19-5) was the perfect warm up for that afternoons final.

In that final they would once more face Dublin International 1 who had beaten Dublin Wings in the other semi final 18-16.

In the 2017 final both teams faced each other with the Men from Phibblestown victorious on a 19-15 scoreline, however the Dublin City boys were determined that wasn’t going to happen again. And after a tense final the team in yellow ran out victorious on a 23-22 scoreline. Their 1st IOHA victory.

Dublin Wings took the bronze medals home.
