Listowel Celtic were 5-1 winners away to Killmallock after a very good performance. Jordan O’Rourke opened the scoring before Kilmallock equalised. However in the second half it was all Listowel as Celtic added goals from Adam Cronin 2 and Jack Behan 2.
Killarney Celtic travelled to Fenit and won 4-0. Mark Harnett opened the scoring and his goal was added to be goals from David Clifford, Casper Malinowski and Kian Gammell.
Mastergeeha had a hat trick from James Nagle as they defeated Skibbereen away to go through to the next round.
Kingdom Boys were also on the road and came back from Limerick with a very comprehensive 8-1 win over Corbally. Dillon Robinson and Eddie Rodgers both hit two each, with Reen O’Sullivan, Diarmuid O’Connor, Aaron Devine and Dara Lowth all hitting one each.
It took sudden death penalties to separate The Park and Killarney Athletic. The Park went ahead from the penalty spot but Lorcan McMonagle equalised for Athletic. There was no further scoring until the spot kicks with The Park coming out on top in sudden death 4-3 after both sides scored 3 of their original five kicks.
Unfortunately Ballyhar went out going down 4-2 away to a very strong Fairview Rangers side. Ballyhar were 2-0 down but showed great skill to draw level with goals from Donal Kenny and Donnacha O’Sullivan. However they couldn’t push on and Fairview scored twice more to go through.

Cian McGarry’s goal for Fenit was not enough to see them qualify for the next round as they went out of the National Cup on a 2-1 scoreline at home to Abbeyfeale. Fenit were within a minute of taking the game to extra time but Abbeyfeale scored with almost the last kick of the game.
Ballyhar had two goals from William Courtney but they also went out, going down 3-2 to Summerville Rangers while Camp are also out going down 2-0 to Fairview Rangers.
Kingdom Boys travelled to Caherdavin and took the game to extra time with Calvin Foley and Eoin Edwards scoring for the Tralee boys in normal time. It was the home side that took over in extra time knocking Kingdom Boys out.
Mastergeeha were always going to find it tough against last year’s under 12 quarter finalists and so it proved with Aisling Anacotty going through 9-1. Paul O’Connor got the Kilbrean sides consolation.
It was a much better day for The Park who went through on a 3-1 score-line over Herbertstown. Jessie Stafford Lacey, James Duggan and Connor Girffin were all on the mark for the Park.
Killarney Celtic’s 2-0 win away to Avenue United was probably the pick of the day. Evan Cronin hit both goals in a very good win.
Killarney Athletic were too strong for Castleisland in the first of the all Kerry clashes. Micheal Casey had a big day in front of goal hitting 5. Adam Buckley and Ronan Buckley plus an OG rounded out the scoring. Sean O’Donoghue and Shane McLoughlin replied for Castleisland.

Newcastlewest Rovers 1-0 Killarney Celtic
Just two Kerry sides made it through to the next round. Castleisland were too good for Killorglin and the winners had the Breen twins in superb form. Damien hit 5 and Derek 1, which were added to by the not insignificant contribution of a Colm Murphy to see Castleisland through.
Listowel Celtic ran out 4-0 winners over Camp thanks to goals from Sean Gilbert 2, Ricki Hanley and Daniel Bardon.
The Park and Inter Kenmare both went out on the same 1-4 score-line while Killarney Celtic went down 1-0 to Newcastlewest Rovers. Celtic thought they had forced the game into extra time with a last minute equaliser only for the referee to rule it out.
