FM 104: ST VINCENT’S MARCH ON TO LEINSTER FINAL – Interview with Shane Carthy

St Vincent's march on to Leinster final

Tough test for the Dublin champions…

St. Vincents are through to their third Leinster Club Football Final  in four  years following a 2-12 to 0-11 7 win over Longford champions, St. Columba’s, at Glennon Bros Pearse Park in Longford.
At the break Vins led by 2 points 1-7 to 0-8.  Tomas Quinn with the goal on 15 mins as he finished off a neat move which involved Enda Varley and skipper Diarmuid Connolly.  One would have assumed at that stage that the Dublin champions would kick on but to their credit St. Columbas refused to lie down and remained a threat to the break.
Both sides struggled after the restart with both teams failing to register a score inside the third quarter of an hour of the game.
The introduction of sub such as Albert Martin and Joe Feeney made a huge difference to Tommy Conroy’s outfit as they contributed some fine points after their introduction.
Shane Carthy, who was earlier denied a goal, wasn’t to be denied late on raising his teams second green flag to secure the victory.
It’s Rhode of Offaly in the provincial final in 2 weeks time as Vincents look to bring the curtain down on a fantastic year for Dublin football by being crowned Leinster Club football Champions.
