Focused Fullen Gaels book final spot

Fullen Gaels (Manchester)2-18 Castleblayney (Monaghan) 1-7: AIB All-Ireland Club JHC semi-final

A sharper, stronger, hungrier and more focused Fullen Gaels romped to victory over an out of sorts Castleblayney in this one sided All-Ireland Club JHC semi-final in Coolock yesterday.

Shane Garry and Reamonn McEntee held sway in midfield while up front the predatory instincts of Colm O’Callaghan and Vincent Morrisey wrecked havoc on a beleagured Monaghan defence. The winners led 0-9 to 0-3 and half time and goals from Morrisey and Paul Duggan ensure their easy passage to Croke Park next month.

FULLEN GAELS: T Goulding, S Wallace, L Knocker, C Maskey, A Morrissey, J O’Shaughnessy, V Feherty 0-1, S Garry 0-3 (0-2 65s), R McEntee, A O’Neill, G Jacob 0-1, P Duggan 1-1, C O’Callaghan 0-7 (0-5f), V Morrissey 1-5 (0-3f, 0-1 ?65), D O’Grady.

Subs: T Corcoran for D O’Grady, D Maskey for V Morrisey, D Walsh for S Wallace.
