Glanmire go into the second round where they will play the losers of Rockchapel and Fermoy.
Pierre O’Driscoll got Glanworth off the mark with a free. The corner forward was central to most of the action as they posted three more points before Tim Leahy landed Glanmire’s second point in the 28th minute. Glanworth continued to push forward and in first-half stoppage time a quick free from hard-working midfielder David Pyne was superbly fielded by Sheehan and sent low to the net.
Glanworth led 1-5 to 0-2 at half-time and then two minutes into the second half O’Riordan made no mistake this time rifling past O’Connell following excellent play from Robert O’Driscoll and Sheehan. A point quickly followed from Pierre O’Driscoll and the gap had increased to 10 points. Glanmire hit back and registered the next four points – two from placed balls courtesy of goalkeeper Brendan O’Connell to cut the gap back to six points (2-6 to 0-6).
By the end of the third quarter, Pyne and Brian Gallagher had picked off another two points for Glanworth. And they could have been further in front but for a point-blank save from O’Connell. Michael Cussen switched into full-forward where he was always a threat and he bagged a nice point on 58 minutes. Three minutes later he rifled to the net but with the clock already in added time, it was too little, too late.
Glanworth captain Sheehan kicked the final point as his side ran out five point winners.
