Review
60min The last fifteen minutes had five scores, with three points from St Brigids, they never looked like getting a goal and now O’Toole’s will play the winner of the upcoming match.
45min O’Tooles score five of the first six points in the second half.
30min David Webster scored goal just before half time to give O’Tooles a two point lead going into the break. Ciarán Kellet had a really good chance to score a goal for St Brigids in the 28minutes but he fluffed his lines.

Preview
O’Tooles and St Brigids clash in this Dublin Senior Hurling Championship Semi-Final in Parnell Park, Wednesday 6.45pm, with both sides capable of claiming that coveted final berth.

St Brigids have been in fantastic form claiming hard fought four and five point victories over Craobh Chiarain and St Vincents respectively. They will look to top marksman and free-taker Paddy McAvinue to plunder the necessary scores, to overcome what is an excellent O’ Tooles outfit.

The Blanchardstown side are also blessed with two Dublin inter-county hurlers in the shape of Alan Nolan and Sean O’ Sullivan, and will hope that both men can steer their title challenge in the right direction.

O’Tooles have had the luxury of facing only one obstacle on route to this Semi-Final encounter. In defeating a tough Kilmacud Crokes outfit, they have signalled their intent however, and will go into this one as slight favourites.

They will look to inter-county players of the calibre of Peadar Carton, Michael Carton, Kevin Flynn and Liam Ryan to provide the impetus for victory here.

Despite the quality of both of these sides, it’s hard to imagine Ballyboden St Endas failing to capture yet another Dublin Senior Hurling Championship, with victory over Lucan Sarsfields in the other Semi-Final almost inevitable.

Yet whoever can claim victory between O’Tooles and St Brigids will provide a stern opposition for the hurling aristocrats from the Firhouse Road.

A shot at the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship is at stake here, with O’Tooles the most likely to prosper.
