Eoin O’Sullivan’s frees were also important for the Glanmire side, while Cian Darcy and Graham also featured on the point-scoring front.

Eleven points from Alan Connolly helped Blackrock to a 1-18 to 0-17 win over Midleton.

The meeting of the beaten 2017 and 2018 county finalists saw Midleton lead early on, but a goal from Blackrock’s John O’Sullivan in the 22nd minute helped the hosts to retire with a 1-9 to 0-8 half-time lead. As well as Connolly, Stephen Murphy, Eoin O’Farrell and Mark O’Keeffe were on target in the second half while the bulk of Midleton’s scores came from Tommy O’Connell and Cormac Beausang.

St Finbarr’s were 2-15 to 0-14 winners at home to Newcestown. The Barrs goals came from Stephen Sherlock — with a wondrous overhead strike — and Colm Keane while Bill Beckett registered eight points from frees. Damien Cahalane and Eoghan Finn each contributed chipped in with two points.

Brian Roche scored 1-5 for Bride Rovers as they won by 1-18 to 1-15 away to Glen Rovers, with Conor Barry, Paddy O’Flynn, Conleith Ryan and Daniel Dooley featuring on the scoresheet too for the Rathcormac/Bartlemy club.
