Moy Tír na nÓg (Tyrone) 1-5 An Ghaeltacht (Kerry) 0-6: Harry Loughran’s great goal broke An Ghaeltacht hearts at Semple Stadium as the Tyrone men snatched victory to qualify for the All-Ireland Club IFC final.
Despite playing the past 25 minutes with 14 men following the dismissal of Eanna O Conchuir, the Munster champions were in control, and opened out a 0-6 to 0-3 lead with scores from Brian O Beaglaoich abd Sean Michael O’Connor.
It wasn’t until the 65th minute that Moy went ahead for the first time when Loughran hit 1-1 to seal an unlikely victory and send his side to Croke Park next weekend.
