Skipper Cian Rock led by example as he took four wickets as Rush beat Eglinton to claim the All-Ireland U15 crown.

Choosing to bowl first, Rush soon had the hosts in all sorts of trouble with Rock taking 4 for 9, and Diarmuid Burke 1 for 5 in a fiery opening burst.

Ross McLaughlin top scored with 16 as Eglinton battled bravely, but three wickets for Andrew Doheny and two for Daniel Thorne saw them dismissed for 45.

The modest target was soon picked off by the Dubliners, with Nathan McGuire hitting five boundaries in a rapid 26 as he and Jack McGee (16*) put on an opening stand of 45.

The impressive left-armer Jack Bogle (1-1) claimed a consolation wicket courtesy of a fine catch by Dylan Young, but there was to be no denying the Rush juggernaut.

Rush boast an incredible record in recent years, with this win being their sixth in under-age cricket, five of which have come in the past four years.

Coupled with their senior team winning three National Cups, Kenure has become a real hotbed for talent, and this looks set to continue as the club invest in their development programmes.
