Roanmore are celebrating this afternoon as they won their first County Junior Football title since 1980, after proving too strong for Western champions, the Shamrocks, in Walsh Park.
There was little between the sides in the opening half and at the midway point in was the Eastern champions who led by 0-4 to 0-2.
It was one-way traffic in the second-half s Roanmore rattled off six white flags without reply and then added a goal though Sean Roche with five minutes to play to put the result beyond doubt. They added two more late points as Shamrocks failed to score in the second-half.
The final score read 1-10 to 0-2 in favour of Roanmore who will now play in the Intermediate ranks in 2021.
