Second-half goals from Jack Doyle, Eoin Corcoran and the clincher in the 59th minute from Gavin Walker powered Réalt na Mara to the 2015 Gorey District Under-21 football Roinn 1 championship title with a 3-3 to 1-6 win over Castletown in Ballygarrett on Saturday, January 23.

Realt na Mara 3-3 Castletown 1-6

The poor conditions were reflected in the first-half exchanges as just three points were scored, with the home side ahead by 0-2 to 0-1 at the break.

Their first two goals left them six clear, only for Castletown centre-forward Yusuf Frih to inspire a comeback which brought his side level before Walker's late clincher.

Réalt na Mara will now meet Taghmon-Camross, with the victors taking on Ballyhogue who scored an incredible twelve goals as they demolished Wygram Gaels by 12-8 to 1-4 to reach a second successive county final.
