Mid-Kerry side Glenbeigh/Glencar became the 11th Kingdom outfit to reach an All-Ireland JFC final, after their victory at Cusack Park, Ennis, yesterday.

Louisburgh started well, scoring seven points before Darran O'Sullivan got the Kerry men on the scoreboard.

However, goals from Kieran Courtney and Gavan O'Grady meant Glenbeigh/Glencar led 2-8 to 0-10 at half-time.

The second-half belonged to Glenbeigh/Glencar as O'Sullivan scored a brilliant goal in the 39th minute, before Courtney hit his second with 14 minutes left.
