Athy's Niall Kelly
Athy had their expected win in the final game of the opening weekend of this season's SFC, played at St Conleth's Park, on Bank Holiday Monday evening.
Castledermot, as usual, gave it their all but never really threatened an upset.
Athy led at the break 1-7 to 0-3, added two more goals on the resumtion from Tony Gibbons and Conan Ronan.
Dan Gray found the Athy net late on for Castledermot but the boys in the red shirts ran out comfortable winners on a final score line of Athy 3-14 Castledermot 1-10.
