Brosnan lifts Meelin

Meelin 5-18
St Patrick's 0-9

EAMON BROSNAN scored 1-7 as Cork champions Meelin romped to victory in Mallow.

Tipperary side St Patrick's got off to a good start, with Tony O'Brien bagging two early points. Gradually, though, Meelin found their feet and they went on to completely take over.

Brosnan had the first goal after nine minutes and Jeremy Curtin goaled in the 15th minute to leave Meelin ahead by 2-5 to 0-3. They notched a third goal in the 24th minute through DJ O'Sullivan and they led at the break by 3-12 to 0-5.

Shane O'Riordan got a fourth goal for Meelin at the end of the third quarter to put them 4-15 to 0-8 ahead and Conor Murphy set up DJ O'Sullivan for his second goal a minute later as the Cork men strolled to victory.
