Londis All-Ireland Senior Football 7s Final
Kilmacud Crokes, Dublin 1-11 An Riocht Down 1-9
By Cóilín Duffy
Kilmacud Crokes were crowned Londis All-Ireland Senior Football Sevens champions for the sixth time on home turf on Saturday evening.
A fifth minute goal from Ben Shovlin provided the springboard for Johnny Magee's charges, in a tight encounter.
Crokes delivered some stunning scores, including efforts from the wing by Dan O'Brien and Niall O'Leary.
Crokes led by 1-6 to 0-5 at half-time, with Deaglan Morgan and Ronan Campbell keeping An Riocht in touch.
The hosts showed greater accuracy throughout, in a game where they registered all of their scores from play.
Crokes goalkeeper Padraig Purcell helped ensure a double-scores lead early on the restart with his second point.
In their first final, An Riocht battled hard and grabbed an injury-time goal from Morgan to cut the gap to two points.
The Down outfit continued to cause Crokes problems as they searched for a match-winning goal.
However, O'Brien put in a well placed block late on to ensure Karl Dias lifted the Cup.
Kilmacud Crokes' Cillian O'Shea was named the Londis Player of the Tournament afterwards.
