Kildare GAA: Ballymore hit back to force replay

Shane Barrett point denies Kilcock

Kildare GAA: Ballymore hit back to force replay

The IFC final between Kilcock and Ballymore will go to a replay following a dramatic ending that saw Ballymore score 1-1 in the dying minutes to force a replay.

Kilcock led at the break by one but dominated the second half opening up a four point lead with five minutes remaining. However a Simon Murphy goal and a precious point from the boot of Shane Barrett forced a replay which will probably be played next weekend.

In the end Kilcock will  no doubt feel they left this behind them but full credit to Ballymore who battled to the end.
