Minor footballers progress at their ease


An opening minute goal from Darragh Stapleton put Dublin on the road to a facile Leinster MFC first round victory at Drogheda on Saturday evening.
It was one-way traffic for most of the opening half with the Dubs midfield of the impressive Ciarán Reddin and Eoghan Keogh dominating that sector with Gary Sweeney and Gerry Seavers also to the fore.
By half-time they led 1-7 to 0-2 and added three second half goals with Fergal Breathnach, Cormac Diamond and Conor OBrien.
The Dubs face Laois in Parnell Park on May 23 in their quarter-final, the OMoore County having prevailed against Longford.
