A late goal from Ian Mulroy saw Lannleire clinch a place in the Kevin Mullen Shield Final with victory at home to Na Piarsaigh on Saturday evening.

There wasn't much to choose between the teams throughout the game but the Dunleer men did enough in the end to set up a meeting with Nh Malachi in the decider.

Na Piarsaigh led 0-3 to 0-2 after opening 20 minutes and 0-6 to 0-4 at the end of first half.

Lannleire edged the second period and with five minutes left to play the sides were level 0-8 each to leave the game in the balance.

Caoimhin Maher kicked Lannleire into a one point lead and then Ian Mulroy ran through to finish expertly past the Na Piarsaigh keeper to guarantee victory for the home side and a place in this year's Kevin Mullen Shield final.

LANNLEIRE: Liam Callan; Thomas Doyle, Paul McGeough, Jason Torris; Brendan McEvoy, Briain McGuinness, Gary Monaghan; Andrew Dowd, Pierce Hawkins 0-1;  Peter Fortune 0-1, Alan Murphy, Mark Dunne; Niall Lennon 0-3, Bob Murphy, Killian Gregory 0-2 .Subs: Caoimhin Maher 0-1 for B McEvoy, Paul Doyle for G Monaghan, Ian Mulroy 1-1 for B Murphy, Craig Devlin for P Fortune.
