MARK DOLAN ensured that St Francis Rochestown's dream debut season in the competition will continue until at least the semi-final stage.

The Cork city school roared into the last four with a shock victory over seven-time winners Thurles CBS in Cahir yesterday.

Dolan really caught the eye with a blistering display.

He bagged the game's only goal in the 11th minute, added a late point from play and picked off five more scores from frees as Rochestown coasted to victory.

The impish full-forward displayed a razor-sharp touch whenever the ball came his way and his intelligence in possession repeatedly brought team-mates into play.

At half-time, Rochestown were 1-7 to 0-5 clear, and a drawn second half was good enough to set up a semi-final showdown with Doon CBS.

Niall Cashman, son of Cork great Jim, stood tall at centre-back and Shane Kingston, one of current county senior team selector Kieran's two sons in the starting line-up, picked off three classy points from play.

Scorers -- St Francis Rochestown: M Dolan 1-6 (0-5fs), S Kingston 0-3, A Ward 0-2, C Cormack, L O'Sullivan 0-1 each. Thurles CBS: M Connors, J Woods (3fs) 0-3 each, L Moloney 0-2 (1f), M Stakelum, R Heffernan, R Long 0-1 each.

ST FRANCIS -- G Connolly; D O'Connor, J Cashman, D Kelleher; D Griffin, N Cashman, D Long; D Meaney, A Ward; C Cormack, C Kingston, S Kingston; P Lynch, M Dolan, C Sheehan. Sub: L O'Sullivan for Sheehan (46).

THURLES CBS -- G Ryan; R Nally, C Ryan, E Heffernan; B Larkin, C McCullagh, J Skehan; M Stakelum, R Heffernan; N Heffernan, T Tierney, B McCarthy; M Connors, L Moloney, J Woods. Subs: R Long for N Heffernan (53), R Teehan for Woods (54), E Fanning for Tierney (56).
