Leitrim Connacht Gold senior football champions Mohill produced a courageously performance against St Brigid’s, which just fell short in Sunday’s Connacht senior club semi-final at Dr Hyde Park, the Roscommon champions winning by 1-7 to 0-8.
Mohill had led by 0-4 to 0-3 at half-time.
In the end, Ciarán Sugrue’s 46th minute goal, which was scrambled over the line, proved to be a critical score – as the Kiltoom men had to withstrand a strong rally from Mohill late on before closing out the win.
St Brigid’s will now face Corofin of Galway, managed by Sligo native Kevin Johnston, in two week’s time.
