Currams' late strike sees Faithful men forward

OFFALY champions Kilcormac-Killoughey were put to the pin of their collar before emerging victorious, 1-13 to 1-8, against Westmeath's Raharney in yesterday's AIB Leinster Club SHC semi-final in Mullingar.

As Raharney threw caution to the wind in the final minutes they were hit on the counter-attack as Dan Currams' late goal finally sealed the deal for the men from the Faithful County. Ciarán Doyle's first half goal helped the Westmeath side into an early lead and by the break the sides were level 1-4 to 0-7.

Two stunning scores from his twin brother Killian suggested an upset could be on but 2012 Leinster champions, Kilcormac-Killoughey, dug deep and gradually edged their way in front before Currams' late strike when he soloed through on goal unchallenged from 30 metres saw Kilcormac-Killloughey into a provincial final.

TYRONE'S Omagh St Enda's held on to defeat Donegal's St Eunan's, 1-8 to 0-8, to book their place in the Ulster Club SFC final against Slaughtneil.

Barry Tierney's first-half goal at Celtic Park proved vital, sending Omagh into the interval 1-5 to 0-5 ahead and they held strong in the final moments to progress to their provincial final despite having Conor Grugan was dismissed.

In the other Ulster semi-final Derry champions Slaughtneil qualified for their first provincial final after defeating Monaghan's Clontibret 1-9 to 0-7 at Healy Park.

AUSTIN STACKS will face Waterford's The Nire in the Munster Club SFC final after the Kerry men defeated Cork's Ballincollig, 0-15 to 1-9, after extra-time at Austin Stack Park.
