Moynalvey's Cathal McCabe with Saran Ó Fionnagain Wolfe Tones during the Meath SFC game at Skryne

Wolfe Tones 1-10  St Patricks 0-9

Ní raibh mórán idir na foirne ar thráthnóna breá grianmhar. Cé gur thosaigh foireann Bhulf Tón go láidir bhí na foirne ar chomhscór go luath sa dara leath ach sa deireadh bhí na fir i gcorcra agus ór ró láidir.

In Kilberry on Monday 9th July, Tones held the upper hand for much of this game and thanks to a very good start opened up a 1-3 to 0-1 advantage thanks to a brace of points from Sarán O Fionnagáin (both frees), a point from the evrgreen Niall Mc Loughlin and a well taken goal from mid fielder Cian O Neill. However the visitors rallied and added four points before the break while Patsy Caffrey replied for the home side to leave the Tones two points ahead at the interval on a score line of 1-4 to 0-5.                                                                     

The Stamullen men added three points in quick succession after the interval while Niall O Reilly opened his account for the Tones to leave the sides level after 42 minutes. Tones sensing the danger upped their game again and added points from O Fionnagáin (3), Iarlaith O Kelly Lynch and Alan Callaghan who had a fine game which he illuminated with some wonderful fielding. St Pats could only manage a solitary reply although the football was end to end and the outcome was in doubt until O Fionnagáin's final point which he scored by doubling on a Callaghan '45.

Wolfe Tones: David Nolan; Alan Browne, Killian O Brien, Conor Sheppard; Niall Mc Loughlin, Shane Glynn, Éanna Harrington; Alan Callaghan (0-1), Cian O Neill (1-0); Gary Mc Fadden, Stephen Sheppard, Niall O Reilly (1-0); Thomas Blaney, Saran O Fionnagáin (0-5), Patrick Caffrey. Subs: Iarlaith O Kelly Lynch for Patrick Caffrey, Charlie Mc Garry for Gary Mc Fadden, Aonghus Mc Loughlin for Killian O Brien, David Coleman for Alan Browne
