Tir Chonaill and Neasdon set for London showdown

18 September 2009

The big guns will be in town for the London SFC final as Tara and St. Brendan's were put to the sword in the semi-finals.

Tara came so close to downing the reigning champions as they lost out by a solitary point - 0-11 to 2-4 - after a nail biting penultimate round clash.

The challengers led by 1-3 to 0-3 at the interval with Cathal Murphy grabbing the Tara goal as Tir Chonaill struggled all over the field.

The second half was a was a different affair with Martin Sweeney leading the way for the champions with a string of points as they moved 0-11 to 1-4 clear. 

Danny O'Mahony grabbed an injury time goal for Tara and they had one last chance to grab a draw but were off target before the final whistle blew.

Neasdon were forced to work hard for their 1-10 to 1-8 win over Brendan's as a Padraig Duffy penalty on ten minutes helped them to a five point lead, which they maintained at the break with a 1-6 to 0-4 advantage.

The same difference separated the sides in second half injury time before Killian Phair grabbed Brendan's goal.
