Na Fiannaly! . . . Mobhi men in to first final

Na Fianna reached their first ever Dublin Senior ‘A’ Hurling Final on Sunday afternoon, with a comfortable semi-final victory over Lucan Sarsfields at Parnell Park. 

The Mobhi Road men led from the front, hitting six scores without reply between the fourth and 12th minutes to take control of the tie.

Paul O’Dea – the Go Ahead Man of the Match – struck two excellent points in the opening quarter, as his side took their first water break 0-9 to 0-4 up.

Ciarán Dowling’s placed balls kept Lucan in touch. However, Sean McCaffrey’s men suffered a blow just before the break, as Colin Currie hit the net for Na Fianna for the game’s only goal, following some good work from his brother Sean.

That helped Na Fianna to a 9-point lead at the break (1-12 to 0-06)- a lead they never looked like relinquishing.

Second half scores from Donal Burke – who finished with 0-9 overall – Sean Currie, Micheál Murphy and Colin Currie saw Niall Ó Ceallacháin’s side claim an 11-point victory (1-20 to 0-12) and a first ever appearance in the Dublin Senior Hurling Final.

Kilmacud Crokes will contest the 2021 Go Ahead Dublin Senior A Hurling Final, after ending Cuala’s three-in-a-row bid at Parnell Park on Sunday afternoon.
