Vincent’s sweep past Parnells

St Vincent’s booked their place in the Dublin SHC quarter-finals following an emphatic 6-21 to 0-13 victory over Parnells in Parnell Park on Saturday.

Alan Moore was in inspired form for the winners, amassing 2-3, getting valuable support from Diarmuid Connolly, the dual player producing a highly influential display at both full-forward and centre-forward whilst chipping in with 1-4.

Cian McBride, Tomás Connolly and Tomás McGrane all found the target for the Marino men with John Hetherton, Ciarán Harney and Ruairí Trainor the pick of the St Vincent’s defence.

Earlier in Donnycarney, O’Toole’s were another team to confirm their last eight berth as they topped Group 3 following their comfortable 1-27 to 2-15 win over Na Fianna.

The Larriers enjoyed a 0-14 to 0-6 half-time advantage, Andrew Morris, Graeme Morris and Conor Carton adding numerous points to complement the excellent work of Michael Carton and Eoin Darcy.

Na Fianna improved after the break but the contest was effectively settled when Peadar Carton netted for O’Toole’s.

Faughs landed a minor surprise as they defeated St Brigid’s 1-24 to 2-12 to book a quarter-final clash against near neighbours St Jude’s.

Ciarán Brennan netted for the winners and with Dublin minor Chris Bennett adding six points from play, the Tymon North club eased to victory.

Cuala were another team to enjoy a facile victory as 1-4 from Colm Cronin helped maintain their perfect record as they overcame Craobh Chiaráin by 2-16 to 1-8 with David Treacy, Oisín Gough and Colm Sheanon impressing throughout.
