Donegal man plays his part in shock of the year in Dublin club championship






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.
