Kerry star Declan O'Sullivan did not have to perform any heroics as Dromid Pearses from South Kerry eased to glory against Tipperary champions Kildangan.
Dromid led by 0-6 to 0-2 at the interval and any chance Kildangan had disappeared four minutes into the second half, when their corner-back Martin Minehan was red-carded. However, they did close the gap to just two points in the 41st minute after a goal from Eoin Gleeson and a Darragh Egan free. Dromid then went on an 0-8 to 0-1 run in the final quarter with midfielder Thomas Curran kicking the last five unanswered points from frees.
