Cian Johnson hits 2-7 to inspire his school to Leinster final

Three Offaly schools will be in final action in the coming weeks after semi-final wins in their respective post primary school competitions.

Gallen Community School will contest the Top Oil North Leinster PP School's senior football 'B' final on March 3 after a comprehensive win over Meath opposition this week.

Offaly star Cian Johnson was in free-scoring form as he bagged a personal tally of 2-7 in a 3-13 to 0-10 win for his school over O’Carolan Colaiste Nobber.

Meanwhile, Tullamore Colaiste Choilm will contest the Top Oil Leinster PP School's senior hurling 'B' ‘Rest of Leinster’ Final with Mary’s CBS of Enniscorthy.

Colaiste Choilm booked their place in that final after a hard fought 1-12 to 1-9 victory over Johnstown in their semi-final clash in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Oaklands Community College will see their juvenile footballers in Top Oil North Leinster PP School's 'D' final action after their huge 5-14 to 2-6 semi-final win over St. Paul's of Monasterevin.
