Dromtariffe 2-16, Ballydesmond 0-13

Dromtariffe made no mistake at the second time of asking on recording a deserved victory over Ballydesmond in the Co. IFC quarter final replay at Boherbue. Having pulled the game out of the fire, two weeks earlier, Dromtariffe enjoyed a surplus of possession on this occasion, their sharpness confirmed on goals netted in both halves by Darren O’Connor and Shane Collins. Dromtariffe advance to meet Gabriel Rangers in a semi final.

Knocknagree 2-13, Aghabullogue 1-6

Knocknagree made light work of  2018 runners up Aghabullogue by unleashing a powerful opening 45 minutes to this Co. IFC quarter final at Banteer. No question, Knocknagree were the masters here, goals either side of the interval from John F Daly and Anthony O’Connor pushed Knocknagree 2-13 to 0-1 ahead. Despite a late Aghabullogue flourish, there was no stopping Knocknagree’s passage to a meeting against Millstreet in a semi final.

Newmarket 0-15,  Brian Dillions 0-12

A gritty display helped Newmarket shake off the Brian Dillons challenge in the Co. JAHC quarter final at Glantane. There was much to admire in the stickwork and energy paraded by Newmarket, required to keep the city side at bay. Points from Donal Hannon, Conor O’Keeffe and Barry O’Connor helped secure a 0-9 to 0-7 grip at the break. Just a single score separated the sides right through the second half, Mike Cottrell, Ryan O’Keeffe, Cian Crowley and Hannon adding points. Newmarket progress to a semi final meeting against Russell Rovers.

St. James 1-11, Boherbue 0-12

A strong finish allowed St. James overcome Boherbue in a quarter final to the Co. JAFC at Kilmurry. The Duhallow champions enjoyed a decent start on points to Denis McCarthy, John Corkery and Adrian Murphy only to pass up a series of goal chances. However St. James warmed to their task and a goal helped gain parity 1-4 to 0-7 at the break. And from a nip and tuck second half, the Ardfield side kicked the closing points to land victory.
