Tinryland had to survive some scary moments before they emerged one point winners over Rathvilly in what was by general consensus one of the best semi-finals for many years
Final score Tinryland 1-14 Rathvilly 3-7
Leading from start to finish Palatine knocked out reigning champions Eire Og in the second minor ‘A’ semi-final.
Palatine led by 0-7 to 0-4 at half time, Palatine’s goalie Colm Heneghan made some great saves and they were the better team all through. Eire Og will be disappointed as they finished with twelve men
Final score Palatine 0-11 Eire Og 0-7
