Carlow's St Mullins Cause Massive Shock By KOing Cuala

St Mullins caused a massive shock in the Leinster Club Hurling Championship on Sunday afternoon by beating recent two-time All-Ireland winners Cuala.

The Carlow champions defeated the Dublin side by a point, 2-13 to 0-18.

Cuala led by the minimum at the break, 0-9 to 0-8 but two second half goals from Mullins were crucial as they caused the upset.

"It's one of the best ever performances from a Carlow team," former Carlow GAA PRO Tommy Murphy told KCLR after the game.

St Mullins will play Laois champions Rathdowney in the Leinster semi-final.

This is how KCLR called the final moments of the game.
