CIARA Newell's early goal proved crucial as Claregalway beat Thomas Davis in Saturday's All-Ireland intermediate final.

Newell's strike ultimately separated the sides at St Loman's in Mullingar as Claregalway became the first Galway outfit since St Brendan's in 2001 to win the intermediate title with a 1-9 to 0-9 victory.

Newell netted from a penalty after Thomas Davis were reduced to 14 players when goalkeeper Louise Curran took down Charlotte Cooney.

At half-time, Claregalway were 1-4 to 0-5 clear. Ciara Burke, leading scorer for Claregalway with 0-5, opened the second-half scoring, but Thomas Davis began to exert more of an influence.

However, with 11 minutes to go Karen Sweeney Lynch received a second yellow card of the day for Thomas Davis and from the resultant free, Burke found the range. And the ace forward added two further points from play to send Claregalway into a comfortable five-point lead.

Late points from Miriam Liston and Amanda Shields were not enough for Thomas Davis as a goal proved elusive for them.

Meanwhile, Kerry outfit Na Gaeil hammered Scottish club Dunedin Connollys of Edinburgh to win the All-Ireland junior final. Na Gaeil ran out winners by 2-27 to 1-5 in the final, played at Crettyard, Laois.

At half-time, Na Gaeil led by 2-15 to 0-2, with the goals scored by Kate Anne O'Connor and Emily Brick.

Caoilfhionn Deeney scored a consolation goal for Dunedin.
