East Sligo Geevagh will play Bunninadden next Sunday in the Kennedys IFC final at 3:30pm. This was a hard fought victory but Geevagh were never behind in this game. Farnans had the breeze which was stronger than appeared but they never really used it which was criminal considering Paddy O'Connor was sitting in on the 5m  line. 

Farnans started the game strongly but early efforts from Finnian Cawley and James Weir from play noticeably faded to towards the entrance side of the town end of the park and fell in the arms of Darren Kearns. 8 minutes into the game Geevagh were 4 points to the good with points from Pat Cawley, Kenneth Sweeney, and a Kevin Henry free. A quick movement from a break off a kickout saw a Daithí O'Reilly close range effort deflected past Lang in the Farnans goal. Farnans in fairness did not panic scoring a free from Cawley in the 10th minute and a minute later a mazy run by Eamonn Kilgannon saw him get his teams first score from play. Kevin Henry pointed a free and then Farnans took over for the last 10 minutes of the half scoring 4 points, from play with Iarlaith Connor,  Paddy O'Connor and Kevin McGee, Finnian Cawley pointed a free to leave the half time score of 1-4 v 0-6

Jodie O'Reilly started the Geevagh scoring in the second half with a good point. Mark Devanney scored a good point on the run for Farnans and was unlucky a few minutes later to see his effort for another to come off the upright. However Kevin Henry scored 2 more frees to keep Geevagh out of reach. Despite Cawley pulling one back, Donal Conlon who had a lot quieter game today compared to the quarter final scored one from play. Stephen Mulligan was sent on for Farnans and 10 seconds later received a pass and popped it over the bar. This was quickly followed by another from Cawley from play to reduce the lead to 1 but Geevagh responded with a point from play and they kept Farnans at arms length for the last 5 minutes despite one or two hairy moments. 

Geevagh, Kevin Henry 0-4 (4f), Daithí O'Reilly 1-0 , Pat Cawley, Jodie O'Reilly, Kenneth Sweeney 0-2 each, Donal Conlon 0-1

Farnans: 0-4 (3f), Paddy O'Connor 0-2, Eamonn Kilgannon, Iarlaith Connor, Mark Devanney, Kevin McGee, Stephen Mulligan, 0-1 each
