Éire Óg played against the breeze in the first half and led 1-2 to no score at half-time with the goal coming from midfielder Brendan Long. The Blues dominated the second half and added three further goals from the sticks of Barry Coffey, Dylan Murphy & Josh Keller. The lads have now qualified for the county semi-final due to be played on Saturday next.
The group four hurlers unfortunately lost out to Templederry in their group four final on a scoreline of 3-4 to 1-3. The winners led by 2-3 to 0-2 at the interval.
