LED by a man of the match dis­play from Colm More­ton, Car­rick eas­ily de­throned de­fend­ing county cham­pi­ons Clu­ainín 3-11 to 0-8 in yes­ter­day’s Leitrim SHC fi­nal at Car­rick-on-Shan­non.

More­ton’s 21st-minute open­ing goal for Car­rick was the game’s turn­ing point, as Clu­ainín had slightly shaded the pro­ceed­ings prior to that.

Clu­ainín’s top scored Gavin O’Ha­gan opened his side’s sec­ond half ac­count with a 52nd-minute pointed free. Liam and Colm More­ton added a goal apiece for the win­ners be­fore the end.
