Final hurdle for Coleraine


By Pat Smith

Eogan Rua Coleraine booked their place in the All-Ireland Club Junior Hurling Championship final by overcoming Sylane (Galway) by 0-10 to 0-4.

Coleraine, for whom the McGoldrick clan were outstanding, will now take on Kilkenny side Glenmore in the decider.

Roscommon, meanwhile, surrendered their FBD League crown in a cracking contest at Tuam Stadium after Galway struck two early goals and won 2-08 to 0-13.

Damien Comer was the hero for the Tribesmen when he fisted home twice in the opening five minutes of the game to send them on the way to their seventh Connacht league title.

Both sides are bidding to end Mayo's dominance in the province and they will be pleased with the quality of this game as they prepare for the start of the National League next Sunday.
