ST VINCENT’S 2-13 ST BRIGID’S 0-15
A victory for St Vincent’s in Thursday night’s Evening Herald Dublin SHC ‘A’ Group 1 encounter at Russell Park but one that came at a cost as Dublin senior Ruairí Trainor was taken off with a suspected dislocated ankle.
As Dublin’s injury woes grow ahead of their Leinster SHC clash with Offaly on May 29 it was a blow both the Vinnies and the Dubs could have done without.
Last quarter goals from former Dublin hurler, Tomás McGrane, and Keith Connolly secured victory for Vincent’s after Brigid’s had led 0-6 to 0-5 at half-time.
