Power lifts Gaels to final
A dominant first-half display helped Manchester's Fullen Gaels overcome a poor Bredagh, from Antrim, in their one-sided semi-final at Chanel College.

Early points from Robbie Power, Shane Lawless and Simon Wallace saw Fullen dominate from the off – and they scored the opening goal 11 minutes in through Reamonn McEntee, finishing to the roof of the net from 15 yards.

Alan Morrissey registered a fine score as Fullen extended their lead, with Power adding four points to his tally by the end of the half, to leave it 1-9 to 0-0 at the short whistle.

Bredagh finally opened their account when Ian Galway pointed 30 seconds after the restart, but further points from Power maintained Fullen's momentum. Bredagh's inability to score from play proved crucial.

And despite the concession of a late goal to Bredagh's Galway, there was never any question as to Fullen's progression.

Scorers – Fullen Gaels: R Power 0-8 (4f), R McEntee 1-0, S Lawless, S Wallace, A Morrissey, P Duggan 0-1 each. Bredagh: I Galway 1-4 (1-3f, 1 '65')

Bredagh 1-4 Fullen Gaels 1-12


A disappointing first-half performance proved fatal as Bredagh succumbed to Fullen Gales by eight points in their All-Ireland Junior Hurling Championship semi-final in Coolock.

Critically, the Down men were forced to play against the elements in the first-half and struggled to settle against a far more physical Fullen outfit who scored an 11th minute goal when Raemonn McEntee cracked an unstoppable finish into the roof of the net. Further points from Robbie Power and Alan Morrissey ensured an emphatic 1-9 to 0-0 interval lead.

The Ulster champions enjoyed a greater degree of possession upon the restart but were far too dependent on Ian Galway for scores, his injury time goal far too late to affect the result.

Fullen Gaels: T Goulding; R Wedel, L Knocker, E O’Brien; D Neylon, J O’Shaughnessy, C Maskey; R McEntee 1-0, S Lawless 0-1; P Duggan 0-1, R Power 0-8 (4f), S Wallace 0-1; J O’Dwyer, B Moloney, A Morrissey 0-1. Subs: A O’Neill for Moloney (22), D Maskey for Wallace (49), A Nash for Duggan.

Bredagh: J Anderson; G Murray, L McCollum, P Byrne; P Gallagher, C Hughes, W Gilmore; P Kelly, E Donnelly; E Trainor, D Hughes, L McMullan; N Irwin, M Scullin, I Galway 1-4 (1-3f, 0-1 ‘65’). Subs: S McGettrick for Murray (16), F McCamphill for Trainor (48), A Donaghy for Byrne (52), C Costello for Gallagher (60).

Referee: John Keenan (Wicklow).
