Irish Independent, 5. 7. 1909.
Dungourney, 5-8. Blackrock, 2-8.
An important match in connection with the Cork County Championship was played at the Cork Athletic Grounds yesterday, when Blackrock and Dungourney met in the County Hurling Final. In the opening stages of the game, Blackrock did exceeding well, and scored pretty freely, but after twenty minutes of play their opponents began to draw level and just before the interval caused a sensation by obtaining a lead of a goal.
In the early portion of the second period Blackrock showed up well, but later fell away considerably, and towards the finish Dungourney scored pretty freely. The winners were better trained than their opponents, and though Blackrock had a few individually brilliant players, some of their older hands gave a disappointing display. On the contrary, Dungourney were an even, well balanced lot, trained to the hour. Over 6,000 persons passed the turnstiles.
