BIG GUNS BALLYMUN Kickhams and St. Vincent’s advanced to the last eight of the Dublin SFC on a busy day of action in the capital.

Dean Rock kicked 1-9 for the 2012 champions as they saw off St Brigid’s by 1-16 to 0-13. Things were looking rosy for Ballymun at half-time as they led by 1-7 to 0-3, with Rock firing in the goal on 28 minutes.

James McCarthy was withdrawn at the break as a precuation, with no word yet on a potential injury. St Brigid’s improved after the interval with Paddy Andrews and Kevin Bonner posting 0-7 between them, but five from Rock kept Ballymun in front.

In Sunday’s second contest at Parnell Park, Diarmuid Connolly netted a goal as St Vincent’s ran out 1-14 to 1-6 winners over Na Fianna.

Aaron Byrne finished a penalty to the net in the early stages, but Connolly’s goal in first-half stoppage-time left St Vincent’s ahead by four at half-time. They eased home with minimal fuss after the break.

Elsewhere in the competition, Ciaran Kilkenny’s Castleknock enjoyed a 1-13 to 0-12 win over St Sylvesters, while Brian Fenton’s Raheny saw off Parnells by 2-16 to 0-7. Finally, Skerries Harps accounted for Whitehall Colmcille on a scoreline of  2-19 to 1-10.
