BURREN SECOND TO NONE.
A point separated the sides 13 seconds into the second half after an Arthur McConville goal for Clonduff, but Burren took control registering an unanswered 2-7 over the next 30 minutes.
An injury time goal from Jason Brown for Clonduff merely put a gloss on the final scoreline, after some great work by Aidan Carr.
this game may have been one-way traffic in the second half, but the opening quarter provided a balanced affair.

Clonduff were handed a lifeline thanks to McConville's goal, but Burren showed firm intent on back-to-back titles.
Conal and James Mcgovern registered the next three points between them, while a fisted Anton McArdle score ensured a 0-11 to 1-3 lead with 13 minutes remaining.
sean Murdock and o'Hare registered goals in quick succession in the closing 10 minutes, with three points also added to the Burren tally as they took a commanding 14-point lead.
Clonduff pressed late on, and were rewarded with a goal from Brown but it was too little too late.
