Young Irelands 1-5      
Ballyhale Shamrocks 1-10
Young Irelands and The Shamrocks served up a very entertaining game on Tuesday night in Thomastown. Irelands got off to a great start with two pointed frees from Jonny Dunphy. Shamrocks had most of the possession in the first half but it was Young Irelands who took their scores better and left them ahead at the interval. Dick Carroll, Ciarán Carroll and Chris Nolan all notched up scores with the highlight being a perfectly executed goal from Dick Carroll.

The second half took on much the same shape with Shamrocks dominating possession. Gowran, however, fought hard and made it difficult for them. Paul Holden posted our only score of the second half and when Shamrocks found the net with only ten minutes to go there was no way back for Gowran.

It was a very good display from Young Irelands and management and players must be commended on their work rate and unfaltering commitment.
