Munster Senior Inter Firm football final

Last year’s All-Ireland senior champions Liebherr Container Cranes Killarney put Cork champions Eli Lilly to the sword in the second quarter of this Munster final played at Lewis Road, Killarney, last night.

Eli Lilly started well as Cork senior Fintan Goold was lively on the 40, while Dermot Hurley was fetching good ball at midfield and Ciaran Dalton fired the Cork side in front for the only time, in the first minute. Liebherr steadied and when Daniel O’Shea converted a 12th-minute free, it was a lead they never lost. Man of the match Kevin Gorman took over at midfield with Thomas Dennehy and Rathmore’s Eoin Lawlor dictated matters on the 40, as Liebherr added seven points before half-time, from Lawlor, Daniel O’Shea (0-3), Daniel O’Sullivan, Donie Murphy, and Gavin Kelly.

Eli Lilly lost Goold (injured) and looked a beaten side as they trailed 0-9 to 0-1 at the break. The second half was one way traffic as Liebherr tacked on five points in the third quarter.

Scorers for Liebherr:

D O’Shea (0-5, 4 frees), E Lawlor (0-4, 1f), D O’Sullivan and D Murphy (0-2), M Shaughnessy, A J O’Connor and G Kelly (0-1).
