Dessie Conneely, one of six U-20 players in the starting team, pounced for two goals as reigning champions Galway advanced to another final.

Galway laid the foundation in the opening half, against the wind, when they raced into a 2-2 to 0-0 lead after eight minutes. Conneely got the opening goal and corner-forward Frankie Burke slotted a penalty home.

Leitrim hit back to shoot seven points in as many minutes, with Brendan Gallagher and Darren Carberry getting two apiece, but they trailed by 3-3 to 0-7 at the break when Conneely pounced for his second goal.

The deteriorating conditions made football almost impossible in the second-half, with the Tribesmen outscoring Leitrim by 0-3 to 0-1.

Scorers - Galway: D Conneely 2-0, R Finnerty 0-4 (2fs), F Burke 1-0 (pen), J Heaney, D Wynne 0-1 each

Leitrim: B Gallagher (2fs), D Carberry (1f) 0-2 each, D Wrynn (1f), S Quinn, D Rooney, N Plunkett 0-1 each

Galway: J Keane; E Kerin, S Mulkerrin, D Kyne; J Heaney, G Bradshaw, D Wynne; C D'Arcy, J Maher; E Finnerty, E Murohy, E Brannigan; F Burke, D Conneely, R Finnerty.

Subs: J Duane for Mulkerrin BC 28, K Duggan for Maher 35, P O Griofa for Brannigan 56, CSweeney for Heaney 62, B McHugh for Burke 63.

Leitrim: D McKiernan; J Mitchell, M McWeeney, M Murphy; K Keegn, C Canning, S Quinn; D Wrynn, D Moran; C Gallagher, E Ward, J Rooney; D Carberry, D Rooney, B Gallagher. Subs: C Moreton for Wrynn 34, N Plunkett 0-1 for Moran 36, J O'Brien for Ward 47, A Armstrong for McWeeney 50, L Ryan for Keegan 62, A Flynn for Quinn 70.
