Molloy helps Naomh Conaill book a final date with St Eunan's


Naomh Conaill 0-9 Four Masters 0-6:NAOMH CONAILL and St Eunan’s will contest the Donegal senior final after the Glenties men overcame a tired Four Masters side in Letterkenny in yesterday’s second semi-final.

St Eunan’s had secured an easy passage to the final on Saturday evening by ending Dungloe’s ambitions.

Four Masters were playing their sixth game in 22 days and as the game entered the final quarter, the toil and effort needed began to show on the Donegal Town side as they failed to score from the 38th minute to the finish.

At that stage they led by 0-6 to 0-4, but they had lost the inspirational Donegal county star Karl Lacey to injury at half-time and Conor Rooney within five minutes of the restart.

In the final 10 minutes, two points from Darragh Gallagher and another from John O’Malley were enough to send Naomh Conaill to the decider.

Dermot “Brick” Molloy had been their star in the opening half, hitting three great points from play, while Michael Doherty kept Four Masters in touch.

But once they lost talisman Lacey, the Four Masters challenge seemed to dissipate and they were never a force in the game thereafter.
