Clonmel Town and Slieveardagh win through in Munster Junior Cup
Redmondstown 0 – 4 Clonmel Town

Redmondstown 0 – 4 Clonmel Town

Premier League side Town opened the scoring when Keith Casheman cut in from the right hand side and smashed an unstoppable shot past the home keeper. This gave the visitors a strangehold on the game, but the Redmondstown defence were resolute and kept the score to the minimum at the break. The second half was skewed nonetheless when the home team lost three players to injury within ten minutes and Town soon took complete control of the game. They scored their second after 55 minutes as Emmet Johnson finished to the net with the aid of the post. It was soon 3-0 when Shane Murphy rounded the advancing keeper before rolling the ball home. It threatened to become embarrassing for the home side at this stage, and but for a series of excellent saves by Damien Dempsey Town would have opened a much bigger lead. They did get a fourth however in stoppage time when Murphy scored his second of the day.

Slieveardagh 4–0 Ballyneale

Newly formed Slieveardagh emerged victorious against higher division opposition on Sunday with an emphatic victory against Third Division Ballyneale. The damage was done in the first period as the home side took control with a goal from Daniel Cashin after ten minutes. They doubled this lead on the half hour through an own goal but the hardest blow of all for the visitors was the concession of a goal right on half time, leaving the home side three goals to the good. The second half was a dull affair with Slieveardagh easily soaking up whatever Ballyneale threw at them, before Michael Ivors wrapped up the scoring with 10 minutes remaining.
