Naomh Moninne remain on course to complete a memorable Louth Hurling Championship double following their minors' semi-final victory over Knockbridge this morning.

Backboned by Paddy Kelly Cup winners Matthew Fee and Feidhelm Joyce, the Black and Amber scored a 9-14 to 0-4 victory in Knockbridge.

Darren Geoghegan top-scored for Moninne with 4-7, while Eoghan O'Hora had a memorable match also having struck a hat-trick of goals.

Eoghan Smyth scored two majors, Pádraig Fallon and Ciarán McGlynn shared six-points and James Murphy added a minor in the rout.

And just like the club's senior team, St. Fechin's will provide the final hurdle in a couple of weeks' time.

A memorable year is on course to get even more memorable for Moninne...
