Kilcormac/Killoughey will meet O’Loughlin Gaels and Na Fianna will face Naas in the Leinster Club SHC semi-finals.
The semi-final pairings were confirmed following a busy afternoon of quarter-final action. Kilcormac/Killoughey recovered from a 0-9 to 0-11 half-time deficit to inflict a 2-22 to 0-14 defeat on Wexford’s Naomh Éanna at Chadwicks Wexford Park. Two goals in the space of 90 seconds from James Gorman and top-scorer Adam Screeney helped the Offaly champions to a surprisingly comfortable victory over their ring-rusty Gorey opponents.
Substitute Luke Hogan’s late goal ended Mount Leinster Rangers’ spirited second half comeback as O’Loughlin Gaels – conquerors of All-Ireland champions Ballyhale Shamrocks in the Kilkenny SHC final a fortnight ago – prevailed by 2-16 to 0-13 at Netwatch Cullen Park.
Brian Ryan’s 59th minute goal helped Dublin kingpins Na Fianna to a flattering 1-24 to 0-19 victory over Raharney at TEG Cusack Park, while Jack Sheridan’s 1-10 inspired Naas to a 2-17 to 1-17 win over Camross at Laois Hire O’Moore Park.Tweet
