Micheal Breathnach’s have a curious propensity to be involved in thrilling conclusions. Inevitably extra time was required at Pearse Stadium. It usually is needed when Breathnach’s perform on the Salthill stage. Breathnach’s eventually burned Glenamaddy when their superior fitness and durability proved critical.
There is something endearing about a Breathnach’s outfit participating in a championship battle. Breathnach’s are regarded as a team that capture the neutral spectator’s imagination. The Connemara club usually perform with trademark grit, spirit, and determination. Those qualities can be influential when matches are delicately poised.
Breathnach have examined the resolve of illustrious opposition since joining the senior ranks, but Glenamaddy are a similarly progressive side. Glen possess tricky forwards too and that is crucial in tight and tense tussles.
When Tom Nally blasted the half time whistle Breathnach’s must have wondered how only a goal separated the teams. The Indreabhan outfit ruled the game, but failed to convert their superiority into scores.
Liam O’Flatharta buzzed around the pitch and was the most influential contributor. O’Flatharta pilfered a brace of neat points and was energetic and enthusiastic as the Connemara side dictated the pace,
Midfielder Sean O’Feinneadh, O’Flathara, and the lively Seosamh O’Conaire split the uprights before Shane O’Conghaile blasted a tonic goal. It was the first of three smashing O’Conghaile strikes. That score pushed Breathnach’s six clear, but the deficit was halved by the interval.
Michael Molloy pulled the strings for Glen, while Shay Walsh was precise from frees. Walsh also landed a smart point midway through the half as Glenamaddy eventually troubled the previously rampant Breathnach’s.
Within seconds of the restart the afternoon’s complexion had altered dramatically. Glenamaddy bagged two goals inside 90 seconds. Walsh’s first was opportunistic, while Tomas Giblin’s had a touch of class about it as it speared into the top corner. Suddenly Glenamaddy were three clear and Breathnach’s initial mastery scarcely mattered. It was Glenamaddy who were now protecting a lead. How would they cope?
Breathnach’s, with O’Conaire crafty and clinical up front, brought the game to parity again and NUIG soccer scholarship holder Seamus O’Conghaile nailed a gorgeous effort. Glen engineered a free and Walsh duly obliged.
Breathnach’s regained the initiative in the first period of extra time. Shane O’Conghaile blasted his second major, while O’Flatharta was efficient too. A 2-11 to 2-8 cushion was accumulated at the turnaround.
Shane O’Conghaile completed his hat trick with a delightful third embarking on a mazy solo run from the 70 yard line before planting a shot past Derek Miskell. Breathnach’s closed the deal.

Micheal Breathnach: E O’Coisdeabhla; R O’Fatharta, P O’Conghaile, M O’Maoileoin; B O’Conghaile, S O’Coisdeabhla, A O’Fionnagain; S O’Maoileoin (0-1), S O’Feinneadh (0-1); D O’Curraoin, E O’Conghaile, L O’Flatharta (0-5, 1f); Shane O’Conghaile (3-1), D O’Conghaile, S O’Conaire (0-3, 1f).
