Nenagh Ormond 15 Barnhall 3, New Ormond Park, 2pm

Nenagh Ormond made history this afternoon as they qualified for the AIB Cup's third round for the first time ever.

The Tipperary outfit struck for tries in each half from Eoin Gardiner and Eoin Ryan, setting up a January trip to either Galwegians or Highfield.

Gardiner combined well at half-back with David Delaney, the former Shannon out-half, and Nenagh's pack also had the upper hand.

Full-back Ben McCarthy's penalty had Barnhall just 8-3 down at half-time but their Division Three rivals were just too strong.

Scorers: Nenagh Ormond: Tries: Eoin Gardiner, Eoin Ryan; Con: John Lillis; Pen: David Delaney

Barnhall: Pen: Ben McCarthy

T: Nenagh Ormond 8 Barnhall 3
