Martins into Final

St. Martins qualified for the North Final after a hard fought victory against a hard trying Tullaroan side.Martins had to line out without the injured Brian Byrne although he did well when introduced.Martins  were ahead at the break 0-6 to 0-4 but a goal from Tullaroan early in the second  half set up a mighty tussle to the finish,some terrific saves from Colin McGrath and with Ollie Walsh leading a great defence Martins were in defiant mood.Up front Martins lost two players to injury Thomas Breen early in the game and Damien Tynan in the second half but the midfielders and forwards led by Canice Maher did enough to edge out Tullaroan and make it  into the Final.
