The Dublin side, also beaten by Donaghmoyne in last year's semi-finals, outscored the Monaghan club 0-6 to 1-2 in the second half but the damage had already been done.

Meanwhile, Armagh club Shane O'Neill were edged out 1-13 to 3-5 by Galway outfit Annaghdown in the intermediate decider at Parnell Park.

Shane O'Neill's led by five at half-time but the sin-binning of midfielder Shauna Grey just after the break was a big blow for the Armagh side.

Annaghdown hit 1-5 during Grey's absence as Rachel King finished with 1-4 from play for the Galway side.

Aimee Mackin's two first-half goals helped Shane O'Neill's lead 2-3 to 0-5 at the break but their advantage should have been even greater after they missed a number of other great chances.
