Ballinkillen 2-12, Tullogher Rosbercon 0-6
Carlow side, Ballinkillen stepped up considerably on their performance the previous week against Mullinavat when taking care of the Tullogher challenge in bitterly cold Brownstown on Saturday evening last.
Carrickshock 0-22, Tullogher Rosbercon 1-9
It wasn’t the greatest game you could see, but there has to be something to admire in the work-rate and skill of a team that clatters twenty-two points between an opponent’s posts----- and there was plenty.
Instance the free-taking of John Power. Instance the very positive running, and scoring abilities of Johnny Butler. Instance the dexterity of Gerry Mulcahy who seems to be in all kinds of trouble in possession of the ball, but who can extricate himself with some deft movement to slice balls over the bar with great unorthodoxy.
