Carr drives Raheny to edge out Brendan's

A BRACE of goals by Seán Carr helped Raheny narrowly account for St Brendan's by 2-7 to 1-8 in their Dublin Adult Hurling League Division 6 encounter at Longmeadows last Sunday afternoon.

The visitors were especially impressive in defence, with goalkeeper Ian Kennedy and wing-back Ed Mullane typifying their solidity, while Cian Daly and Donal Ryan added crucial scores for Raheny in the second half.

There was another away win in Bray as the free-taking of Ronan McDyer proved pivotal as Clontarf registered a 0-17 to 0-11 success over Cuala.

The introduction of substitute Pádraig O'Brien helped hugely for Clontarf, who confirmed their victory thanks to notable contributions by John Wall, Willie Comerford, Niall Terry, Seán Brody and John Gleeson.


Elsewhere, Good Counsel and Naomh Fionnbarra recorded away wins over Skerries Harps and St Vincent's respectively, while St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh proved too strong for Ballinteer St John's at Martin Savage Park.

In AHL6, Shane Teehan gave a superb display from centre-back when helping Kevin's overcome Naomh Olaf by 3-10 to 3-7 at Páirc Uí Bhriain.


Emmet O'Mahony, Tommy Madden, Graeme Dunphy and Matteo Power all shone for the visitors, who struck three goals through Ciarán O'Connor, Thomas Walsh and Robbie Purcell.

Meanwhile, in Cloghran, the displays of midfielders Niall Molloy and Liam Kennedy were instrumental in Whitehall Colmcille accounting for Kilmacud Crokes by 0-15 to 2-5.

John Moore's free-taking kept the scoreboard ticking over for the hosts, while Alan Moore, Joey Moran Jnr and Conor Sheedy were others who drove Colmcille over the line.
