Arles-Kilcruise squeeze through
Arles-Kilcruise qualified for their second successive county final despite only scoring once in the second half in O'Moore Park yesterday.
A Ross Munnelly point early in the second half put them 1-9 to 0-4 up but it was to be their last score of the game as a serious injury to Chris Conway and a Colm Doran goal dragged Graiguecullen back into contention.
