Two years after losing their senior status, St Josephs, Doora/Barefield are one step away from a return to senior football.

St. Josephs Doora/Barefield 2-11
Shannon Gaels 0-7
Venue: Shanahan McNamara Memorial Park, Doonbeg

A strong third quarter proved decisive as St Josephs Doora/Barefield proved too strong for Shannon Gaels on Saturday afternoon

The teams had to contend with a very strong wind which blew directly down the field. It aided Shannon Gaels in the opening half but they found scores hard to come by.

At the first water break the Gaels led by the odd point in five and they went on to double their advantage by half time when the score was 0-5 to 0-3.

St. Josephs got off to a great start in the second half when Eoghan Thynne goaled and by the end of the third quarter they were seven points clear, Thynne having scored their second goal to bring the score to 2-6 to 0-5.

Shannon Gaels tried hard to get back into contention but the Doora- Barefield outfit held the upperhand in the key positions.

Darragh O’Shea was outstanding for the winners who also had excellent displays from Conor O’Brien, Cian McDonagh, the Hannan twins and Conor Brannock while Davy O’Brien again made a huge impression after being introduced.

Scorers St Josephs Doora/Barefield: Eoghan Thynne (2-0), Tom O’Brien (0-3, 2f, 1’45), Davy O’Brien (0-3 1f); Conor Brannock (0-2 2f ), Conal Kelleher, Cian McDonagh, Tom Hannan (0-1) each
