As the score suggests this was a facile win for last year’s County Champions Oranmore/Maree. Playing with the breeze in their favor in the first half they took about ten minutes to settle down but once they got going there was no stopping them. At midfield Seamus Grealish and Donal Dooley had too much of their own way and gave their forwards plenty of the ball. At half time they lead by 5 goals 6 points to Carnmore’s 2 goals.
In the second half with Carnmore having the breeze they failed to get moving and the seasiders scored at will. Best for the winners were goalie Michael Hannify, Pat Commins, M. McGrath, Michael Melville in defence and at midfield Seamus Grealish and Donal Dooley. Best forwards were Thomas Fahy, P. Carroll, N. O Malley, and Eamon Dooley. Bert for Carnmore were backs V. Hanley, P. Duggan, M Walsh and at midfield James Grealish. Pick of the forwards was J. McDonagh, J. Duggan, and M. Hughes.
