Superb defence especially Ciaran Higgins senior and goal keeping from Declan Kidd gave them a three point win over their opponents. Donal Murray pointed some superb frees and goals from Eamon McBride and Cormac McGuckin kept the 'Martins in the driving seat thought out. Next round is against Newbridge on June 10th.
