Kevin Mullen Shield semi-final

Lannléire 1-9 Na Piarsaigh 0-8

Ian Mulroy came off the bench to score a late goal and fire Lannléire into the Kevin Mullen Shield final.

The score was enough to dethrone Na Piarsaigh in the clash at Dunleer and set-up a meeting with Naomh Malachi in the decider.

Na Piarsaigh led 0-3 to 0-2 after opening 20 minutes and 0-6 to 0-4 at the end of first half.

Lannléire edged the second period and with five minutes left to play the sides were level 0-8 each, as the game hung in the balance.

Caoimhín Maher kicked Lannleire into a one-point lead and then Mulroy ran through to finish expertly past the Na Piarsaigh goalkeeper to guarantee victory for the home side.
