This was a much better performance by Claregalway with man of the match Sean Foy and Tomas Noone outstanding in the back line. Rory Dillon, Jerry Giles and Eoin Glynn completed a very solid defence; Joseph Garrett and Con Butler worked hard in mid-field while the forwards took their scores in style. Donal Cahalane scored a fine point when he came on as a substitute.
