It was a good weekend for the three Fingal clubs fighting to stay up in Division 1.

Skerries Harps were backboned by their Dublin underage half back line of Greg McEneaney, Eoghan O’Connor and Ronan Geoghegan, who were outstanding in the match against Kilmacud Crokes.

With Killian McGinnis excellent also, Skerries twice found the back of the net in the first 10 minutes through Finn Chatten.

And approaching half-time they led by three before Dara Mullin struck a great goal for the visitors to leave it 2-4 to 1-7 at the break.

Heading into the final few minutes of the game Skerries had opened up a three-point lead following points from O’Connor Flanagan, Rob McKey and Geoghegan.

Crokes responded with a point, but a score from McGinnis looked to have secured victory for Skerries before Conor Casey popped up with an injury-time goal for Crokes to leave it 2-10 apiece at the end.

The honours were also shared between Cuala and Naomh Mearnog out in Dalkey, with Alan Doyle getting both goals for Mearnog.

Cuala had led by three at the break, but the introduction of experienced hands David White and Mike Doyle transformed the game for the visitors.

With five minutes to go Mearnog had taken the lead, before Cuala levelled the game off a fisted point – 0-14 to 2-8 the final score.

St Maur’s were 2-12 to 1-12 winners at home to Na Fianna, with last year’s Dublin minor Karl Flynn (1-1) scoring early in the second half following a mix-up in the Na Fianna defence.
