MFC Final
Cross V Clann Éireann
A blistering start from Clann Éireann saw them register 1-05 in the first quarter of the game . We took a while to settle but two points from Daniel Cumiskey in the 15th & 16th minutes got our scoring underway . A point from Clann Éireann’s Tiernan kelly increased their lead to seven with ten minutes to go until half time . A superb strike from the boot of Oisín Doyle sailed over the bar . Minutes later a sideline kick from substitute Rory O’Connor to Patsy Finnegan who passed to Cían Mcconville who hit a rasper of a shot which resulted in our first goal of the game . Cían got his second goal of the match two minutes later . The dying minutes of the first half saw Cían McConville convert a ’45 and Clann Éireann score a point . At half time we were only trailing by a point .
Both sides exchanged points at the start of the second half . A great pass from John Kernan to Rory O’Connor who fisted the ball into the back of the Clann Éireann net to give us our third goal and ultimately put us in the lead . Clann Éireann got a hat-trick of points and with five minutes to go we trailed by one .

seperated the teams .
