Cé gur chuir Bhulf Tón trí deiseanna scórála déag ar foraoil tháinig siad ar ais ag deireadh an chluiche chun dul ar aghaigh go dtí an chéad babhta eile den comórtas Corn Feis

Wolfe Tones conceded two early goals which saw the sea siders lead by 2  03 to 0  02, the Tones early scores coming from Thomas O Reilly and Sarán O Fionnagáin. Tones narrowed the gap by half time thanks to points from Cian Ward (2) and Thomas Blaney all frees.

Wolfe Tones dominated from the start of the second half but couldn’t make this dominance count on the scoreboard and registered six wides before eventually finding the target from a ’45 converted by Cian Ward fifteen minutes after the restart. Colmcilles responded before Thomas Blaney added a free for the Tones. Colmcilles scored again to leave the score  ‘Cilles 2  05 Tones 0  07 after 50 minutes played. Tones needed a goal and it was rather fortuitous as a high ball in to the ‘Cilles defence ended up in the net off Fiachra Ward. This gave Tones momentum and they quickly added three points, two from Cian Ward and one from Thomas Blaney to lead by 1  10 to 2  05 as the final whistle beckoned. The teams traded points in added time.
