O Se leads way for Chorca Dhuibhne

PS Chorca Dhuibhne 0-10 St Flannan's, Ennis 1-3

LAST year's defeated finalists PS Chorca Dhuibhne moved a step closer to redemption by booking an all-Kerry semi-final with Tralee CBS.

Playing with the wind, St Flannan's led 0-3 to 0-0 after 20 minutes with points from Conor Cleary (two) and Clare minor Martin O'Leary.

But by half-time, the Kerry school had moved 0-5 to 0-3 in front, with Dara Ó Sé scoring three points.

When Ó Sé added two quick points at the start of the second half, Chorca Dhuibhne were in control, only for a Cleary goal to make it 0-7 to 1-3.

But further points from Barra Ó Suilleabháin (two) and Ó Sé saw the Dingle school advance to the last four.
