The performance was the most cohesive of the campaign and was fully deserved given all the hard work at training. While those on the scoresheet again take the plaudits, all players were excellent, particularly Fionan Quigg in goals, Mikey Dwyer, Luke Cleary and The Kearney Bros James and Sean at the back, and Luke McGillycuddy in mid- field, with all players working hard on and off the ball.
