A storming first half performance saw St Kieran’s march past Colaiste Eoin and into the Leinster colleges senior hurling final with a convincing 2-14 to 0-7 win.
Spurred on by the dangerous Robbie Donnelly, Kieran’s opened against the breeze and still racked up a 1-10 to 0-2 lead by half-time in Fenagh on Saturday.
The city side were sent on their way when Sean Morrissey bagged a fifth minute goal when his long range shot deceived goalkeeper Tadhg Ó Murchú and ended up in the net. From there, the Saints never looked back.
Donnelly, who helped himself to 0-7 in the opening half, struck for a goal in the early stages of the second half. Even with almost half an hour to play, the League champions never looked in danger of being overhauled by their rivals.
