Ballyhale 2-17 Gort 1-15
Ballyhale advanced to the AIB Club Final on St Patricks Day with a fine win over Galway champions Gort in Tullamore on Saturday. They now meet Kilmallock of Limerick who had a comprehensive win over Ulster champions Portaferry in the other semi-final. In the early stages of the game in Tullamore there was little between the sides with a Richie Cummins goal for Gort in the 4th minute giving the Galway side a huge lift. But two goals from Patrick and Eoin Reid in as many minutes proved decisive. Ballyhale were 4 ahead at the break and the margin never dipped below 3 points in the second half.
Ballyhale Shamrocks are in Semi-Final action this Saturday when they take on Galway champions Gort in the AIB All Ireland Club championship.
This game has now been switched to O'Connor Park Tullamore with a 2pm throw in.
Admission is €15 for adults and €10 for students and pensioners. Adult tickets are on sale at the usual Centra and Supervalu outlets. Please note that €10 Student/Pensioner will only be on sale at the stadium. Under 16's are free of charge.
