Title holders Ennistymon are one step away from retaining the Clare under 21 A football championship title.

Ennistymon 1-15
Kilrush/Killimer 0-10
Venue: Tubber

An eight point win over Kilrush/Killimer at Tubber this Monday evening has put them through to a meeting with St. Breckan’s with the John Marrinan memorial cup to be presented to the winners.

From the off in this semi-final, the holders put down a marker and they had opened a six point lead with just twelve minutes played when the score was 1-5 to 0-2.

When the half time whistle sounded they were seven points clear with the score at 1-9 to 0-5, the goal having been scored by Diarmuid Fahy.

While Kilrush/Killimer tried hard to get back into contention, they were unable to close the gap and the champions continued to hold the lead throughout the second half.

Impressive for the winners were Ciaran McMahon, Brian McNamara, Eoin Rouine, Shane Woods Diarmuid Fahy and Paudie Considine who kicked some good points.

Conor Fennell was the loser’s top scorer while others to do well were Odhran Cunningham, Tadhg Lysaght and Dylan O’Brien but the fact that a third of the team had played with Killimer in the Munster junior football semi-final on Saturday didn’t help their cause.
