Conahy Shamrocks 1-08 Rower Inistioge 0-08.
Played in ideal conditions at the Kells Road Venue on Saturday Conahy Shamrocks emerged deserving winners in the J J Kavanagh and Sons Intermediate Football final when they overcame the Rower Inistioge. "Tosú maith leath na hoibre" the saying goes and a 1-2 to 0-0 start inside 8 minutes gave the Conahy team the platform for this victory. But the Rower Inistioge side fought their way into the game and were just one point in arrears at the interval 1-3 to 0-5. The Rower side had the first score of the 2nd half to draw level and thereafter there was little between the sides. Conahy just kept their noses in front to win on a final score 1-08 to 0-8.
