The under 21 A hurling final will be a repeat of last year with Inagh-Kilnamona (holders) taking on Feakle-Killanena on a date to be confirmed.
Feakle-Killanena were first to qualify when they scored a 2-18 to 0-17 win over Clonlara at Gurteen earlier this evening..
A contribution of 1-12, 1-9 from frees from Fiachra Donnellan, played a key part in Feakle-Killanena’s victory.
Clonlara led by two points at half time when the score was 0-11 to 1-6, the winner’s first half goal having come from Darren Keehan and this was still the position five minutes into he second half after the sides had exchanged points.
Donnellan’s goal, seven minutes into the second half, proved to be a crucial score and gave his side back a lead they held to the finish.
Evan McMahon, Con Smyth, Cathal Noonan and Tobias O’Meara gave most support to Donnellan on the evening.
Ian Galvin who contributed a dozen points, Cian and Sean Moriarty and Padraic O’Loughlin did best for Clonlara
Meanwhile, county minor Aidan McCarthy top scored for the title holders when he hit 0-10 in their merited win over Newmarket at Sixmilebridge where the final score was 0-17 to 1-7 in a game which was an hour later than the first semi-final at Gurteen,
The winners led by three points at half time, 0-7 to 0-4 and they had added four to their half time tally before Neewmarket registered their first score of the second half.
Inside the last quarter, Cathal Noonan scored the game’s only goal and while Newmarket battled to the end, Inagh-Kilnamona were the more evenly balanced side and deserved their victory on an evening when David Fitzgerald, Shane McInerney, and Jason McCArthy gave most support to the very impressive Aidan McCarthy.
