Students miss out

The students of D.C.U./St. Patrick's were denied a place in the Kehoe Cup final when their oft-postponed clash with Longford finally went ahead on Friday night, losing by 4-12 to 2-13.

However, it was encouraging to see such a strong Wexford representation on the squad, with five playing while another four are part of the squad.

Aodhán Foley from Shelmaliers lined out at midfield for the student teachers and scored three points, while the half-forward line featured Monageer-Boolavogue's Diarmuid Fenlon and Dean Whelan of Blackwater who bagged a brace of points apiece.

The top marksman for the losers was full-forward Martin Og Storey from Oulart-The Ballagh whose 1-6 haul included 1-3 from frees and 0-2 from '65s. He was flanked in the left corner by Diarmuid Byrne (Rapparees).

Rathgarogue-Cushinstown trio Eoin Porter, Bryan Cody and Paddy Murphy had featured in earlier rounds, while Conor Halligan (Faythe Harriers) is also on the panel.

The Wicklow side managed by Rathnure's Seamus Murphy will now face Longford in the final of this competition which honours the memory of Micheál Kehoe from Glynn, the national President of the G.A.A. from 1949 to 1952.
