Cathal Toal dethrones champion to march on in Ulster Championship

Andy Watters

CATHAL Toal dethroned last year's Ulster Men's Senior champion Bryan O'Reilly.

O'Reilly had an early lead but that soon changed as Cathal threw a superb shot to regain the advantage and went on to almost rise a bowl.

O'Reilly fought back to only leave yards between the pair and three nerveless shots sent him 40 yards ahead. Again Toal hit a great shot to the rise of the hill and two poor efforts from O Reilly saw Toal take a one bowl advantage. O'Reilly plugged away but it was Toal who went on to win by a full bowl and book himself into the next round.
