Sheehan in mood to steer St Mary's cruise

St Mary's cruised to the final after they breezed past the challenge of St Peters at Monaleen Gaa club yesterday. The Kingdom side were in superb form as they crushed the exiles right from the off and ran out 14-point victors.

Kerry senior Bryan Sheehan was one of the stars of the show as he ran the game from the centre while kicking an impressive four points.

Sheehan was ably assisted in his endeavours by left half-forward Paul O'Donoghue, who bagged a tally of 1-2 and posed no end of problems for the Manchester club's rearguard.
