FINGAL 3-21 CAVAN 2-7
Niall OCallaghan was the scorer-in-chief as Fingal claimed All-Ireland MHC C honours at Ashbourne on Saturday afternoon.
The Dubs side were far superior to their Ulster rivals throughout and got off to an electric start which paved the way for their impressive victory.
Only five minutes into the clash a Phil Lennon point and goal from Colm Byrne put Fingal in the driving seat. Cavan rallied briefly but a string of unbroken points from Andrew Lonergan, Ciarán Sullivan, Karl Rogers, Lennon, Kevin McLoughney, OCallaghan and Conor Dwyer had Fingal 1-12 to 0-4 to the good at the break.
