A strong first half gave the Galway team an advantage they never relinquished as they led 2-5 to 1-2 at half-time.
And even though they were restricted to just one score for the second period, it was a crucial goal that kept their Belfast opponents at bay as they became the county’s second finalist this week following Colaiste Bhaile Chlair’s impressive 7-14 to 0-6 win over St. Catherine’s Armagh in the ‘C’ semi-final on Monday.

Glenamaddy CS will now face Munster champions Presentation Secondary School in the All-Ireland Final. The Tipperary outfit were 3-7 to 1-5 winners over Loreto College, Mullingar in the first game of the double header.
That Final is scheduled for next week but will unlikely take place on the original date, Sunday, March 25th as there is a full round of National League matches that day.
The Galway trips to St. Loman’s, Mullingar don’t end as two more schools are in junior semi-final action over the next six days.
Both matches are repeats of senior ties played already. Colaiste Bhaile Chlair will be hoping for a double when they meet St. Catherine’s, Armagh in the Junior ‘B’ semi-final on Friday (March 16th) at 12pm.
And on Tuesday (March 20th) at the same time, Presentation College, Tuam will aim for revenge when they meet Loreto College, Cavan in the Junior ‘A’ semi-final.
