Raheens took on Eadestown in Naas and although warm favourites trailed after conceding two first half goals before fighting back on the resumption and winning by the minimum margin against an Eadestown side that could count themselves somewhat unfortunate not to have at least secured a replay.

Elsewhere Kilcock handed out a bit of a hammering to Sallins while in the JFC Rheban, as expected accounted for Capagh.

Results:

IFC: Raheens 1-10 Eadestown 2-6

IFC: Kilcock 2-17 Sallins 0-5.

JFC: Rheban 3-6 Cappagh 0-6.
