Dooley bags hat-trick as ruthless Ireland show Scottish visitors little hospitality

Ireland 8-11 (51) Scotland 4-3 (23)
Shinty/hurling International

Ireland recorded an easy win over their Celtic counterparts in the second international at Cusack Park, Ennis.

Whereas the Irish had a six-point win in Inverness a week earlier, a whopping 28 points separated the sides at the whistle in this hybrid-rules fixture.

Goals (worth five points each) from Shane Dooley (a hat-trick), Brendan Murtagh and Patrick Maher, saw Ireland race into a 5-3 to 0-1 lead by the 20th minute. The Scottish outfit trailed by 5-6 to 1-2 at the break, with Finlay MacRae providing their only goal, and in a one-sided affair, the Irish added three second-half goals through Brian McFall, Murtagh once more and Tipperary's Seamus Callanan.

Scorers -- Ireland: S Dooley 3-3, B Murtagh 2-3, S Callanan 1-4, B McFall 1-1, P Maher 0-1. Scotland: K Bartlett 2-2, K MacRae 1-1, F MacRae 1-0.
