Sat, 13th May 2017


A powerful St Jude's swept aside the challenge of Skerries Harps in the Naul on Friday night to book their spot in the Dublin SFC quarter-finals.

The Tymon North men set about their business in impressive fashion despite the difficult conditions with the accuracy of Declan Donnelly (pictured) and Niall Coakley turning possession into scores.

By the interval Jude's were nine points clear, 0-11 to 0-2, and they kept the momentum going after the break.

Five minutes into the second half Cork senior panelist Coakley struck for his side's first goal and ten minutes later Donnelly had raised his side's second green flag.

Harry Dawson was Skerries top-scorer with 0-3 (0-1f).
