With St Flannan's having already qualified for the quarter-final stages and De La Salle out of the race, there was little at stake when these sides met at Cahir yesterday.

St Flannan's quickly took control of the game and goals from Conor O'Gorman and Tony Kelly helped them into a commanding lead at the half-time interval on a score of 2-10 to 0-4.

They continued to dominate in the second half. Further goals from Eoin Enright, Peter Duggan and James Sweeney rubbed salt into De La Salle wounds as St Flannan's turned on the style to emerge comprehensive winners.
