Adam Farrell put Listowel Celtic ahead before Stephen Smith Galvin equalised. Listowel Celtic took over and went 3-2 ahead thanks to goals from Aoife Horgan and Cian Clancy. They stayed ahead mainly thanks to their keeper Jack Shine who had a great game. Caoilan O’Connor pulled one back for Camp but they just couldn’t find the equaliser. Well done to Camp Juniors who produced an excellent programme to mark their 20th anniversary.
Killorglin had a very good 3-1 away to Charleville. Dylan Murphy scored 2 and Adam Owens the third to see the mid Kerry boys progress to the 4th round.
