O'Mahony was his side's top scorer over the 60 minutes when sending over 0-9 (seven frees), including 0-5 in the first half at the end of which they trailed 1-10 to 0-6.

Only a point separated the sides on 22 minutes but CIT hit 1-3 unanswered with Doheny's defender Lavers getting forward for the opening goal.

When Kerry man O'Brien raised a second green flag in the 40th minute there was no way back for Mary I who were outscored by 0-9 to 0-3 thereafter.
