An Rinn and Kilrossanty easily advance to quarter-finals

An Rinn and Kilrossanty booked their spots in the quarter-finals of the Waterford SFC after last night’s fourth round action.

An Rinn collected their third win in convincing style against Ardmore at Bushy Park (1-17 to 0-9).

Last year’s semi finalists held a 1-7 to 0-2 lead at half time.

Fergal Ó Cuirrín slotted a goal in the second minute of injury time. Sean Barron saved twice in the build-up but was powerless to stop Ó Cuirrín who eventually found the bottom corner. Donie Breathnach finished up with eight points as Bilí Breathnach and Liam Ó Lonáin contributed three apiece.

Ardmore were severely hampered by nasty injuries sustained to Kenny Murphy and Declan Prendergast and they stare into a relegation scrap after four straight losses.

Kilrossanty emerged comfortable 15 point winners (3-14 to 1-5) over Rathgormack at Fraher Field. Inter county forward Paul Whyte, pictured, landed 1-7 in a prolific performance.

His penalty and a David Power goal allowed the green and gold move 2-5 to 0-3 clear at halfway. Rathgormack retaliated through a Jason Curry penalty but they badly missed top scorer Gavin Nugent. Pa Whyte struck a third to put Kilrossanty out of sight. David Power (1-4) and Joey Veale (three points) were other prominent figures for John Kiely’s men.

The Nire kept up their unbeaten run by defeating De La Salle at Stradbally (2-15 to 0-8).

Aided by the wind and a Shane Ryan goal on 18 minutes, they departed 1-8 to 0-4 in front by the break.

Kevin Moran and John Mullane were sent on for Salle but there was no stopping The Nire.

Alan Lawlor raised a second green flag in the last quarter to confirm an emphatic outcome.
