Brian Carroll rolled back the years by scoring a whopping 3-15 for Coolderry in the Offaly SHC yesterday.

The former county star was on fire as the record title holders inflicted a crushing 6-27 to 0-9 defeat on Drumcullen in Birr. The veteran forward posted 1-11 from frees and 1-0 from a penalty as Coolderry moved a step closer to securing a semi-final spot.

With one round left to be played in the group stages, St Rynagh’s are already through to the last-four thanks to their 2-24 to 0-21 comeback victory over Kilcormac/Killoughey, in what was a repeat of the 2020 county final which was only played a couple of months ago. It was the champions’ fourth win on the trot, while K/K remain on six points where they are now joined by Coolderry.

Shinrone join Birr on four points after recording a 2-19 to 0-18 victory over the St Brendan’s Park outfit. Ballinamere and Belmont have also moved onto four points following their wins over Seir Kieran and Kinnitty respectively. Kinnitty are also on four points, with Seir Kieran and Drumcullen still point-less.
