County champions Killoe were emphatic winners of the Ladies Division 1 senior football league final replay at Maguire Park in Ballinalee on Saturday last.

Clonguish were leading for about the first 20 minutes but Killoe eventually found their form and went in at half-time leading 1-7 to 1-4. Killoe started the second half really well and were very much the dominant force on the changeover.

While Clonguish launched some promising attacks they just could not break down the resolute Killoe defence. Clonguish got a penalty about 15 minutes into the second half which they scored and this gave them a lifeline.

But Killoe rallied again and for the last 8 minutes Clonguish just seemed to give up the fight with the wide margin of 14 points separating the sides in the finish.
