The Heath kept trying though and the lethal Tony Walsh kicked a point before Paddy Fitzpatrick landed five unanswered points to make it 8-7 to 3-13 with a couple of minutes to play.
Clonaghadoo weren’t finished though and hat-trick of goals for Aron Lawlor capped a brilliant display from the men in maroon.
