Raising all his green flags in the first half, Keane helped his side to lead 3-7 to 1-7 at half-time and while Brian O'Driscoll did his best to salvage something for St Fachtna's, ultimately his eight points, seven from play, were not enough.

Brendan's began well, moving into a 0-4 to 0-1 lead inside 10 minutes, but a Kevin Davis penalty put Fachtna's 1-3 to 0-5 ahead.

However, Keane's quick-fire treble then put Brendan's in control.

O'Driscoll kept Fachtna's in contention before Gavin Kelly got Brendan's fourth goal late on.
