Seniors Footballers into County Final - 10/10/2014

Congratulations to our senior footballers on reaching a historic first senior county final in 108 years, after a great semi final win against Bishopstown. Ross got the perfect start when Kevin MacMahon fisted in a third minute goal. Bishopstown found the back of the net after nine minutes with a goal from Patrick Cronin. The city team were reduced to fourteen when centre back Jamie O’Sullivan was dismissed before the interval. Bishopstown lead 1-6 to 1-5 at half time. Micheál Kelly, Stephen Murray and Brian Hodnett were introduced at the start of the second half. Ross really upped the pressure for the final thirty minutes and outscored Bishopstown 1-12 to 0-1 in this period. Brian Hodnett found the back of the net with a sublime finish.
