The winners trailed at the break by four points 0-6 to 2-4 with Cathal Sweeney scoring three early points but goals from Luke Mitchell and Luke Kelly gave the Royals that half time advantage but it was in part two that Donal Ó Fátharta charges hit top gear outscoring Meath by 3-7 to 0-5 in that period, Tinney got the winners opening goal nine minutes after the break and by the 45th minute McCormack and Gill had added two more to give Galway a six point advantage that they would never loose.

Galway 1-17 Clare 2-13

Galway are on track to retain the McCarthy Cup after beating Clare by the bare minimum in Semple Stadium Thurles this afternoon after the Banner who trailed by nine points at one stage came close to ending the Tribesmen run in the championship.

The winners made a brighter start and lead by lead by nine points to two after nineteen minutes and when Jonathan Glynn goaled the champions went in at the break leading by 1-9 to 0-6 , Joe Canning increased their lead to seven early in the second half but then Clare began to up their performance by a gear or two when Shane O’Donnell hit their opening goal and then Peter Duggan scored two pointed frees it was a two point ball game.

Niall Burke and Canning responded with a point a each but when Peter Duggan scored Clare’s second goal the lead was cut to a single point after 55 minutes but Clare could never go ahead and shot 19 wides on the day as the ‘Maroon and White’ just got to the winning post and a date in Croke Park with Limerick on All-Ireland final day.

Galway beaten by  Monaghan in  Pearse Stadium

1548674 1

All Ireland SFC Quarter-Final Group 1

MONAGHAN 0-16 GALWAY 0-8

By Cian O’Connell at Pearse Stadium

Unsurprisingly this Monaghan win was celebrated furiously in the west as Malachy O’Rourke’s team secured a first All Ireland semi-final appearance since 1988.

Monaghan were primed for this tussle in the west and Galway just couldn’t cope with the grit and determination summoned by the visitors.

Many wondered whether David Clifford’s splendid last gasp goal for Kerry in Clones a fortnight ago would derail Monaghan’s hopes of progression, but the response at Pearse Stadium was emphatic.

The opening period went according to plan for Monaghan, who were roared on by a passionate travelling support in Salthill.

Galway were frustrated for vast chunks of the first half by Monaghan, who thundered into the physical exchanges departing at the break armed with a 0-7 to 0-5 advantage.

Monaghan ran the ball smartly with Ryan McAnespie clipping two fine points, while Darren Hughes worked diligently throughout the pitch.

Vinny Corey and Colin Walshe also ventured forward to nail fine scores for Malachy O’Rourke’s outfit, who settled smartly to accumulate a 0-5 to 0-2 lead by the 25th minute.

Fintan Kelly, Corey, Hughes, McAnespie, and Walshe all contributed scores, but Galway did improve as the interval approached.

Peter Cooke lofted a nice point from distance which drew a response from McManus (free) and McAnespie as Monaghan edged four clear,

Gary O’Donnell and Shane Walsh (free) narrowed the gap, but Monaghan, primed to force turnovers, deservedly led by two at the turnaround.

After the restart, though, Monaghan continued to inflict damage clipping four of the next five points with McManus and Hughes prominent.

Suddenly Monaghan’s cushion was five and Galway were in significant bother when Eamonn Brannigan mined a point.

Dermot Malone, who was hugely industrious for Monaghan, and Ian Burke traded scores, but O’Rourke’s team were dominant.

Malone stitched the play effectively as a McAnespie point was followed by frees from McManus and Rory Beggan. Drew Wylie, Colin Walshe, and Damien Comer were all sent off for second yellow cards offences in the dying embers of the game, but it scarcely bothered Monaghan.

Fittingly McAnespie iced the Monaghan cake deep into stoppage time and they will head for Croke Park next weekend heartened.

Scorers for Monaghan: Conor McManus 0-5 (4fs), Ryan McAnespie 0-4, Darren Hughes 0-2, Colin Walshe, Vinny Corey, Dermot Malone, Fintan Kelly, Rory Beggan (f) 0-1 each.

Scorers for Galway: Eamonn Brannigan and Shane Walsh (2fs) 0-2 each, Peter Cooke, Ian Burke, Gary O’Donnell, and Damien Comer 0-1 each.
