Killoe lifted the Connolly cup with the one point win in a very keenly contested game as the first-half finished with Killoe ahead by the narrowest of margins.

As the clock ticked down, a replay appeared on after an Andrew Kelly free tied the scores as they head into injury time.

There was still time, however, for midfielder McGoldrick to pop up with the winner one of seven scorers for Killoe with Mimnagh and Sean McCormack landing 0-3 each.

Killoe will now represent Longford in the Leinster football championship where they will face the Westmeath champions, with that game scheduled for the weekend of October 27.
