BALLYMUN KICKHAMS moved into top spot on their own as they registered a comprehensive 5-21 to 0-7 victory over Parnells in their Dublin Adult football League Division 1 clash at Páirc Ciceam last Saturday evening.
Jason Whelan was in superb form for the hosts, adorning an excellent individual display with 1-4 from play as Kickhams ran riot against their struggling opponents.
Karl Connolly maintained his fine recent form with another solid showing at corner-back while there were telling contributions further up the field by both John Small and Kevin Leahy.
In Saggart, Mark Vaughan was in inspired form as he helped Kilmacud Crokes overcome St Mary's by 3-10 to 1-10.
Ross O'Carroll and Ronan Ryan were especially strong in the Crokes defence while Vaughan added some pivotal scores alongside Liam óg Ó hÉineacháin, Dara Mullin and Barry O'Rorke.
