Dungarvan CBS 8-25
Coláiste Dún Iascaigh (Cahir) 3-10
Dungarvan CBS are through to the All-Ireland Senior ‘B’ Post Primary Schools semi-finals this Saturday and a meeting with Heywood Community School (Laois) in Carlow after trouncing Coláiste Dun Iascaigh in Touraneena on Wednesday last. And no, the above scoreline is not a misprint!
Dungarvan CBS opened the scoring in the first minute with a Patrick Curran pointed free, but the lead was a short lived one as the South Tipperary side courtesy of Liam Howard struck over a brace of scores. It was from here on in that the winners began to take over, as Christy Breathnach, Patrick Curran, Ryan Donnelly and Patrick Curran again rifled over scores with responses coming from Ryan Murphy (two) to give Dungarvan CBS a six points to four lead at the end of the first quarter.
Dungarvan won a free on 16 minutes and the roar went out from the sideline for Patrick Curran to try his luck for a goal and this outstanding young prospect made no mistake.
