Tough semi-final battles in 11’s Cup:
Mastergeeha and Listowel Celtic will contest the 11’s Cup final (which could be the last one at this age for a while if the new Development Plan comes in which only allows non-competitive games up to 12’s). Both sides had great battles against very tough semi-final opponents.

Anthony Kavanagh and Rob Stack scored for Listowel Celtic with Colin Doody and Conor Kerins getting the Park goals. The Park were spot on from the spot with Colin Doody, Dara O’Connor, Josh Connolly, Colin Kerins and Edward Sheehy all scoring to send the Park into the final.
