Kilkenny City 2, Dundalk 3 (full-time)
Dundalk came from behind to win this five goal thriller at Buckley Park.
Phil Hughes shot Cats in front with a stunning 25 yard effort on 25 minutes.
But goals from Jonathan Prizeman and Garry Haylock inside three minutes early in the second half turned the game on its head.
Ciaran Kavanagh added Dundalk's third goal on 78 minutes.
A second strike from Damien Brennan three minutes from time was too little too late for First Division Kilkenny.
