Match Report

When Aaron Ennis faced up to a free with 2 minutes left his Clann na nGael team trailed by 7 points. He elected to take the point and this turned out to be crucial as Clann na nGael somehow rescued a draw with a blistering finish scoring two very late goals.

The first arrived on the stroke of full time when Caoimhin O’Griofa ran along the wing and cut inside shooting low to the net. From the kick out Dunderry went the length of the pitch but unluckily hit the post which would have killed the game giving Clann na nGael one last chance. Anthony Swaine from around the middle of the pitch kicked in a speculative ball which the Dunderry backs looked to clear but Caoimhin O’Griofa  managed to dispose his man and when he slipped the ball to Graham  Geraghty on the edge of the square the large crowd held their breath. Geraghty with a shot reminiscent of some of his famous goals fired low to the corner to rescue a draw from a very unlikely position.
