What a few days it has been for Newcestown GAA Club after it won the Cork PIHC final for the first time on Sunday thanks to an emphatic 1-23 to 0-8 win against Valley Rovers.
Senior hurling in 2016 now beckons for this West Cork club that continues to dream big.
Here are a few images from the last two days that highlight the excitement and celebrations after Newcestown's greatest hurling moment.
Newcestown GAA history was made on Sunday in more ways than one.

Kilbrittain's Jamie Wall had a few kind words for Newcestown's ever-green captain.
Congrats to a top club @NewcestownGAA & skipper John Crowley - hands down the toughest club full back I ever had the misfortune of marking!
