Newmarket Celtic’s David McCarthy from Ennis was introduced off the bench for the final ten minutes with Moher Celtic’s Tom Hanrahan part of the squad along with Dean Hegarty of Newmarket Celtic a native of Kilnamona who is still recovery from an ACL injury.

Daly was among the scorers, hitting the back of the net on the fifty second minute to help send UL on their way to glory.
