There was disappointment for the three competing Fingal teams in Sunday’s championship semi-finals.

In the Senior 2 grade Naomh Mearnog trailed by two at the break but eventually went down by the same margin - 1-14 to 3-6 - at home to Cuala.

Skerries Harps also lost out in the other semi-final to Ballinteer St Johns 4-12 to 2-8, while in the Inter 2 competition St Maur’s were defeated by the St Vincent’s third team 7-8 to 2-13 at Marino.

And in the Junior 6 Shield decider goals from Niamh Mulvany, Beibhin Flatley and Niamh Moran helped Wild Geese to a 4-11 to 0-0 win over Cuala.

•In ladies football, St Finian’s Rivervalley finished their Division 5 league season in style with a 8-10 to 2-7 win over second-placed rivals Whitehall Colmcille.

Wanting to finish the season as strong as possible, Finian’s went for the jugular from the throw-in and didn’t have to wait long for Emma Howe to rattle the back of the net, followed by further goals from Ellie Kane and Megan Mc Keown.

This pattern continued relentlessly, with the full forward line and half forwards Breda Orohoe, Annabelle Timothy and Rebecca Kenny all finishing the half on the scoreboard to put the game out of sight.

The second half was a quieter affair, with the backs repelling attack and keeping Whitehall at bay, notably Linda Cummins and Sarah Duignan.

Further scores from Claire Mc Manamon, Emma Howe and Ellie Kane kept the scoreboard ticking over and the result means that Finian’s finished in the runners-up position in the league, having also triumphed in the Division 5 Cup.
