The UL student was among the first half scores with two points from play.

But there was no denying the scoring star - Iris Kennelly, who finished with 1-4 from play for the winners.

Ide Trant had two goals half goals for Old Mill.

Fr Caseys needed a goal in reply and the Abbeyfeale girls had a tonic start to the second half when Muirne Lane found the net.

Sarah O'Brien and Sarah O'Connor had further Fr Caseys pointed but Old Mill held on for a deserved win.
