Curry proves too hot to handle for St Andrew's

Ballinabrackey (Meath) 0-11
St Andrew's (Carlow) 1-5
Leinster Club JFC Final

A storming second half from Ballinabrackey saw them win a highly entertaining clash at Dr Cullen Park, Carlow, yesterday.

The Bagenalstown side deservedly led 0-5 to 0-3 at half time but Ballinabrackey dominated the second half -- with Danny Quinn and Seamus Curry outstanding in attack -- and closed out the tie despite John Miley's 42nd-minute goal.
