It was a goal and Six points from nineteen year old midfielder Aine Nic Donnachadha that helped Galway champions Moycullen run out easy winners over St. Marys of Sligo today in St.Croans GAA pitch Ballintubber  Co.Roscommon  in the Connacht Intermediate Final.

It was the Sligo side who had  started the brighter when Keighleigh Cawley pointed in the second minute. St. Marys won the next kick out and a well worked move was brilliantly finished  to the back of the Moycullen net by  Sarah McMoreland . 

Moycullens first goal came from a penalty when Molly Ni Eidhin was fouled on her way to goal. Megan Ni Dhabhorain calmly placed the ball past Sarah Keaney in the Mary’s goal . A badly placed kick out led to Moycullens second goal when Katie Ni Artuir found herself in behind the St.Marys defence and she placed the ball under the out coming keeper Sarah Keaney. Molly Ni Eidhin tagged on a point from a fourteen yard free to leave a goal between the sides with ten minutes played.

St. Marys came back at Moycullen and in the twelfth minute they got their second goal  and again it came from the talented Sarah McMoreland . St Marys captain Karen Maloney then pointed from a twenty yard free to give St. Marys a badly needed one point lead. St. Marys would not score again for the next twenty eight minutes and in that time Moycullen put four goals and sixteen points on the score board ending this game as a contest. 

Credit to St. Marys they played till the end and scored three goals  in the last ten minutes. Two was from Emma Hansberry  and one from Amy Gerrity. Karen Maloney completed the scoring for the Sligo side with a pointed free. Moycullen added a further seven points in the last ten minutes, four  from Shannon Ni Cheidigh, two from Catherine Ni Chonnaire and one from the deserved  player of the match Aine Nic Dhonnchadha . 

Moycullen now move onto play the Munster Champions Kinsale of Cork in the All Ireland semi-finals to be played on November 18th or 19th.
