WATCH: Newcastle West and St Kieran’s reach Limerick SFC semi finals

Newcastle West and St Kieran’s joined Adare and Oola in the Limerick Senior Football Championship finals after quarter final victories this evening.

Ballysteen led their game with Newcastle West by a goal as it entered the final stages, but the Magpies hit 1-3 without reply to book a last four spot against Adare.

Danny Neville’s goal put Ballysteen into a three point lead at the break and it seemed for large periods that they were a match for a fancied Newcastle West outfit.

Neville’s excellence from play had Ballysteen in a winning position, but Bryan Nix’s goal levelled the game.

Nix hit the target after Iain Corbett’s long delivery was missed by Mike McMahon and Pa Ranahan.

Mark Ranahan sends over a free via the right post in their 1-10 to 1-7 defeat to Newcastle West.

Elsewhere, St Kieran’s put in a solid second half showing to see off a gallant Fr Casey’s side by 1-11 to 0-7 in Newcastle West.

Kieran’s led 0-4 to 0-3 after an uneventful first half, but the introduction of Darragh Treacy helped the Michael Reidy trained side gain control.

Sean McSweeney’s point 11 minutes into the second half put Kieran’s three clear and the outcome never looked in doubt from that moment.

John Hayes sent over a couple of further points, before McSweeney’s late penalty put the game to bed. They now play Oola in the last four.
