St. Brigid's advanced in Connacht

Reigning All-Ireland Club SFC Champions St. Brigid's advanced in Connacht; St. Loman's and Newtown Blues claimed first round wins in Leinster; while Castlebar Mitchells, Kingdom Kerry Gaels, Rathnew and St Martin's claimed county title wins, following today's Senior Club Football action.

St Brigid's never looked troubled as they claimed a comfortable 2-10 to 0-9 win over Tourlestrane of Sligo at Dr. Hyde Park.

A Frankie Dolan goal helped the Kiltoom side to a 1-6 to 0-1 interval lead, with Garvan Dolan adding Brigid's second goal on the restart.

St. Brigid's will now face St. Mary's of Leitrim in the last four at Carrick-on-Shannon in a fortnight's time.

In their first Leinster Championship game in their history, a late John Heslin point ensured a 1-11 to 1-10 win for St. Loman's over Old Leighlin at Cusack Park, Mullingar.

Old Leighlin led by 1-6 to 1-5 at half-time, with Cathal Coughlan netting their goal, with Heslin scoring 1-6 over the hour.

Tullamore had Nigel Bracken and Johnny Maloney sent off in the second half, as Newtown Blues claimed a 0-12 to 1-7 win at Drogheda, thanks to late points from Brian Kermode and Robert Carr.

Castlebar Mitchells bagged their first Mayo SFC title in 20 years following a 1-11 to 0-8 over first time title chasers Breaffy at Elverys MacHale Park.

A Danny Kirby goal helped the eventual winners to a 1-6 to 0-4 half-time lead.

Castlebar stood firm on the restart, despite the influence of Aidan and Seamus O'Shea at midfield for Breaffy.

Wexford's Lloyd Colfer bagged the only goal as Kingdom Kerry Gaels braved a strong Tir Chonaill Gaels comeback to take their first London SFC title since 2004, following a 1-7 to 0-9 win at Ruislip.

KKG led by 0-5 to 0-4 at half-time, but Colfer netted soon after the restart, to ensure a reversal of the final result 12 months ago.

Rathnew will face Longford Slashers in the Leinster Club SFC next weekend, after claiming the Wicklow SFC title thanks to a 3-9 to 1-14 win over Baltinglass at Aughrim.

Two goals in the last five minutes including a late punched effort from James Stafford earned Rathnew their 31st title.

St Martin's never looked troubled as they claimed their first Wexford SFC title, thanks to a 1-8 to 0-5 win over Fethard at Wexford Park.

Wind assisted, the eventual winners led by 1-6 to 0-1 at half-time, and despite Fethard outscoring them on the restart silverware always looked like going to Martin's for the first time in their history.
