Dr Crokes in devastating form even without Colm Cooper

The Killarney giants could even afford the luxury of leaving Colm Cooper on the bench as they raced 1-10 to 0-5 clear by half time, with Tony Brosnan scoring the goal. Kilcummin had led 0-5 to 0-4 at the end of the opening quarter with Shane McSweeney to the fore, but in the second-half, Crokes ran riot with Daithi Casey running the show. Kerry U21 player Tony Brosnan hit 3-2 while Casey converted penalty in an awesome display by Pat O’Shea’s men.

Rathmore and Dingle served up a serious battle in Rathbeg. Rathmore led 1-5 to 1-3 at the interval, John Moynihan scoring their goal before Paul Geaney netted for Dingle. Paul Geaney looked sharp as he scored Dingle’s goal in the 13th minute but Rathmore led 1-5 to 1-3 at the interval. Mikey and Conor Geaney added three early second-half points for Dingle but, at the other end, Paul Murphy won a penalty and Eoin Lawlor goaled as Rathmore led 2-6 to 1-6.

However Dingle were the stronger down the closing stretch and added four points with Brendan Kelliher getting the winner in the 58th minute for a one point win (1-10 to 2-6).

Legion just got the better of Kerins O’Rahilly’s 0-9 to 0-8. David O’Sullivan led they way for Legion while Barry John Keane scored three points for the Tralee side.

Stacks defeated Milltown/Castlemaine 0-13 to 0-9 with Kieran Donaghy and Shane O’Callaghan on the scoresheet for the winners.

Meanwhile, there will be no return to Croke Park for St Mary’s and Bryan Sheehan as the All-Ireland IFC champions were beaten in a thriller by the 2015 champs Ardfert, 2-15 to 1-16, with Kerry hurler John Egan the star of the show.
