Epic Tomás Ó Sé Proves His Worth With Masterclass As Nemo Reach All-Ireland Final

Epic Tomás Ó Sé Proves His Worth With Masterclass As Nemo Reach All-Ireland Final
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Nemo Rangers are in an All-Ireland final after overcoming Slaughtneil 2-19 to 1-14.

The Cork club last won an All-Ireland title in 2003 but backed up their impressive victory against Dr. Crokes in the Munster final to spring a surprise victory today. It took extra-time to separate the sides but Nemo's superior fitness told in the final quarter as they launched into a seven-point lead and put the game beyond doubt before half-time of extra-time.

Leading the way throughout for the Cork side was their outstanding half-back, Tomás Ó Sé.

Ó Sé was immense today. The Kerryman rolled back the years as he drove forward relentlessly with ball in hand. His game has always been about work rate and running power, and those attributes shown throughout the game.

The wing-back was crucial to Nemo's first goal as he gathered the breaking ball in midfield and carried forward.

Nemo had been three points down at half-time but never panicked and rattled off 1-5 after the break including points from Ó Sé and Barry O'Driscoll as well as a Luke Connolly goal.

The Kerryman transferred to Nemo from his former club An Gaeltacht at the end of 2014 and since then has won two county medals. He now looks to go one step further on St. Patricks Day.

It is 18 years since O'Se won his first All-Ireland medal, as Kerry overcame Galway in 2000. With Corofin waiting for the Cork champions in the final, it will take victory over another Galway side for O'Se to add to his already impressive haul.
