St Rynagh's.......1-3

The junior footballers have qualified for their first semi final appearance in fourteen years having overcome St Rynagh's on Sunday morning in Durrow.

Having contested but lost the 2003 and 2004 county finals, Edenderry lost to Birr in the 2005 semi final and have never gotten beyond the quarter final stages since then.

However, in two weeks time they will play either Rhode, Kilclonfert or Doon in the semi finals with the draw due to take place on Monday evening.

Goals from Leslie Nolan (2), Dan Ryan (2) and Derek Kelly helped the reds beat St Rynagh's with Edenderry conceding just three points in the first half and one goal in the second half.

There was some fine performances throughout the field with Diarmuid Egan, Peter Butler, Jack Brady, Ciaran Farrell, Leslie Nolan and John Gorman all impressing.
