Carbury was the venue for the Rathangan v Kilcock game, a game that Kilcock drew last weekend with a goal deep into injury time but this time around there was no reprieve for the Kilcock boys as Rathangan hung on, despite coming under intense pressure in the dying minutes to take the honours on a score line of Rathangan 1-9 Kilcock 0-11.

The second replay took place at Round Towers grounds and here it was Ellistown who came out on top, and decisively at that, on a score line of Ellistown 3-8 Monasterevin 3-8 to 1-7.
