Shelmaliers collected their first ever title at the grade after goals from Simon Donohoe, AJ Lehane, Ross Banville and Eoghan Nolan – who finished with 1-2 from play.

The winners, who were promoted from intermediate ranks just 11 years ago, led by 1-6 to 0-1 at the interval and powered to victory in the second period.

Shelmaliers are the @tdsupplies Senior football champions after a comprehensive and very impressive win over Kilanerin by 4-14 to 1-7. Hard luck to the north county men but this first-ever senior football title is a richly-deserved win for @shelmaliers – enjoy the celebrations!
