A David Butler inspired Drom & Inch proved to hot for a depleted Nenagh Eire Og to handle in a one-sided County Hurling League Division 1 semi-final on Friday evening.

Butler bagged a whopping twelve points, eight coming from play, as Drom steamrolled a Nenagh side who struggled from the get-go with the pace and movement of the Mid outfit.

Playing with the aid of a slight breeze, Drom dominated the opening exchanges and by the quarter hour mark had raced into a deserved six-point advantage with Butler and Michael Connors finding their range with ease while Johnny Ryan and Kevin Butler pulled the strings in midfield, 0-9 to 0-3.

Drom & Inch proved far slicker in all sectors in the opening stages and could have easily been further ahead had David Butler’s rasping 14th minute shot not cannoned off the crossbar. Operating a two-man full-forward line, Drom’s pace and movement coupled with their ability to find men in space proved crucial in crafting the majority of their early scoring opportunities.
