Cillian O'Connor'S seven points were the difference between the sides in the semi-final at McHale Park yesterday as champions Ballintubber overcame Ballina Stephenites 1-15 to 1-10 to seal a final date with Castlebar Mitchels.
Ballina led by 1-6 to 0-6 at the interval but an Alan Plunkett goal 15 minutes from time put Ballin-tubber into a lead they never lost.
Meanwhile, seven points from the boot of Kevin Filan helped Castelbar Mitchels advance to their second successive county final after a 0-11 to 0-6 win over Knockmore, the team they also beat in last year's semi-final.
