Despite a stirring performance, Naomh Feichin (Clifden) had to give second best to Tyrone’s Stewartstown Harps in the All-Ireland JFC Club Semi-Final played in Hyde Park on Saturday afternoon. In a game that was tight from beginning to end, Clifden led by a single point at Half Time (1-4 to 0-2) but the Tyrone and Ulster Champions came back to force Extra Time and in the end, Gareth Devlin scored the crucial goal that would see them through to the All-Ireland Club Final against Fossa from Kerry.
