St Jude's goal keeper

Liam Mailey was in goals for St Jude's in their shock win over Ballymun


Donegal man and former Finn Harps goalkeeper Liam Mailey was a member of the St Jude’s team that caused the shock of the championship last weekend in the Dublin Senior Championship.

The Convoy native was in goals for the Kevin McMenamin-powered St Jude’s team that defeated the hotly fancied Ballymun Kickhams on Saturday, in the quarter-final of the championship in Parnell Park.

St Jude’s from Templeogue came from four points down with five minutes to go to win by one point, 2-9 to 1-11.

Ballymun, last year’s beaten county finalists, were backboned by five of Dublin’s back-to-back All-Ireland winning team including Evan Comerford, Philly McMahon, John Small, James McCarthy and Dean Rock.

St Jude’s will face three-in-a-row chasing St Vincents, who welcomed back Diarmuid Connolly last weekend in the semi-final.
