Kilnadeema/Leitrim lead 1-4 to 0-4 at the interval. David Tierney netted their goal on eight minutes after good work from the impressive Brian Molloy.

The Galway outfit took the game by the scruff of the neck from the restart with scores from Molloy and full forward Shane Lawless.

Two late goals from Mayo county star Kenny Feeney were not enough for Tooreen who were left to rue their first half misses.
