FORMER AUL stalwarts Killester United will compete in Intermediate footballs top tier next season.
Victory over St Francis in Hadden Park sends United top of the Senior Sunday 1 table-and whilst the destination of the title is yet to be confirmed the three points secured on Wednesday means the can’t fall out of top three.
Daniel Murphy opened the scoring for the visitors on 20 minutes, but after The Saints hit the woodwork they pulled one back on the hour.
It remained level until the 85 minute when Ian Graham found the net from 20 yards, registering a goal worthy of winning any game.
David Fitzsimmons, who followed up his man of the match display against Home Farm Belgrove with another inspired performance, then enabled Gareth Arkins to wrap up the points and promotion.
The energetic front man burst into the box before presenting it on a plate for his team mate.
Killester play fellow promoted outfit Drumcondra this weekend needing a win to keep their title hopes alive.
