St Rynagh’s 3-3

Birr 1-8

St Rynagh’s trailed at the interval by 0-2 to 1-2 and they had impressive goalkeeper Tara Dooley to thank for them not being further adrift.

However a hat-trick of goals in the second-half, one apiece for Helen Dolan, Niamh Clancy and Roisin Woods proved to be the vital scores.

Birr fought back in the closing stages and almost snatched a draw but they were unlucky to see a late shot for an equalising point drift just wide.
