Ten points in an impressive second half eventually eased Dromcollogher-Broadford past relegation threatened St Senans, 0-15 to 1-5.
St Senans, who now face St Patricks in the relegation play-off, actually led 1-5 to 0-5 at half time thanks to a 19th minute goal from Mike Behan.
But St Senans were overly reliant on frees from Paul and Ian Ryan.
At the other end Drom-Broadford had Ray Lynch, Jason Stokes and Derry McCarthy all chipping in with two points each from play.
They also had reliable free-takers in Pat Donnelly and Micheal Reidy.
