ST BRENDAN’S CRUISED into the Munster colleges Corn Uí Mhuirí final with a comfortable last four victory over St Flannan’s in Rathkeale this afternoon.

After ending the reign of title holders PS Chorca Dhuibhne in the last round, St Brendan’s issued another strong statement of their credentials with this success.

Victory puts St Brendan’s into their first final since 2012 and the competition specialists will now aim to land the school’s 20th crown and first since 2010 in the final.

The foundations for this victory were firmly set in the opening-half as St Brendan’s were ahead by 14 points at the interval.

David Shaw struck their first goal in the 15th minute to propel St Brendan’s into a 1-6 to 0-0 lead and the second goal arrived courtesy of Mikey Casey in first-half injury-time.

Casey and Lee O’Donoghue were in good form as well for St Brendan’s when it came to notching points in an impressive first-half showing.

St Brendan’s were in front 2-9 to 0-1 at the break but despite playing against the wind in the second-half, they did not squander their winning position.

Scores were harder to come by for the Killarney outfit but they still outscored their opponents 0-5 to 0-4 in the second-half to run out victors.
