BALLYBODEN Enda, tonight's Leinster club in Parnell Park, has risen to the semi-finals of the SHC and was victorious in the delayed quarter-finals with Clonkill.
The players of both teams stopped for an emotional moment of silence before embarking upon the memory of Annabel Loughlin (3) who passed tragically last weekend.
Annabel was Clalkill's daughter Clalkill and former Westmeath actress Enda Loughlin. The Leinster club was postponed from Tuesday to Tuesday following the quarterly release.
To their endless credits, Clonkill showed a gutsu performance to push favorites into extra time.
The previous night, Westmeath champion Kevin O & brien said his team would do their best to "perform and show their intentions" with Enda and his family, "we will respect and honor their wishes." everyone can be proud. "
After 12 minutes, it was between 0-6 and 0-2.
While Eoin Price was a constant, sharp threat, captains Brendan Murtagh progressed forward fully.
Almost inevitably, I took Conal Keaney to settle in Ballyboden.
Six minutes later, he got his team's first score. A minute later, Keaney shot a second.
In the 31st minute of Boden the first race – the first time they led in the game – came from Aidan Mellett's injury in Clonkill's fault, a direct run on the target, and a clever lateral pass to Conor McCormack on the square.
McCormack softened his line, but Niall Ryan, who scored a brilliant goal in the first half of the race, was ready to make an easy result for Joe Fortune to make a part-time leadership between 1-9 and 0-10.
A pair of Paul Ryan doubles Boden in the second half, but when Clonkill's officer Niall Dowdall descended from the left wing, Enda's cousin Luke Loughlin came together for the first time.
Niall McMorrow showed that the winner was clear before Murtagh to send us free time in the 64th minute.
There, the accuracy of the ball placed in Ryan's and a Paul Doherty target finally broke Clonkill's night of extremely emotionally charged.
