Crokes secure Leinster Club title


Kilmacud Crokes (Dublin) 2-07 Rhode (Offaly) 1-07: A pair of second-half goals from full-forward Mark Davoren ensured 14-man Kilmacud Crokes the Leinster Club SFC title at Parnell Park today.

Crokes began the final poorly as Cian O'Sullivan was sent-off with a straight red card in the 14th minute.

Niall McNamee scored 1-03 to help Rhode take a 1-06 to 0-03 lead into the break.

Mark Vaughan's 46th-minute point put Crokes ahead for the first time, and with Davoren's goal-scoring prowess, the Dublin side secured their third provincial crown.
