Kevin Fennelly Semi-Final

On a breezy Sunday evening, St. Martin’s and Barrow Rangers lined out in the Kevin Fennelly Cup.  St. Martin’s, assisted with the wind in the first half, kept up with their opponents despite them getting a goal midway through the half.  It was a close first half with Shane Kinsella, Mick Morrissey, Donal Shore, Luke Maher and Thomas Walsh all trading scores with the Paulstown side, leaving the half time score St. Martin’s 0-10 Barrow Rangers 1-6.  However, with the loss of Mick Morrissey and Luke Maher through injury early in the second half, and Ranger’s aided by the strong breeze up the field, the second half clearly belonged to them.  St. Martin’s, though been accurate when they did get scoring chances were not strong enough for their counterparts.  The Barrow Rangers outfit went on to win on scoreline of 2-19 to St. Martin’s 0-17.
