SHANNON OLYMPIC CLAIMED the scalp of Premier Division side, Tulla Utd in the Munster Junior Cup while expected wins were recorded by the county’s top sides.

A hat-trick from Ray Quigley plus a Jay Regan goal proved crucial as Shannon Olympic caused the upset of the weekend when they eliminated Tulla Utd from the Munster Junior Cup. Goals from Fionn Ryan and Craig McSweeney were insufficient for the East Clare side who had knocked out Lifford FC in the first round.

In the first ever meeting between Newmarket Celtic and Fairgreen Celtic, Ian Collins and a Harvey Cullinan double saw Newmarket pick up a 3-0 win in very wet conditions at Lees Rd. Conor Hehir netted the winner for league champions Avenue Utd as they held off a stern Coole FC.

Shannon Town Utd A advanced to the third round of the provincial competition with a 6-2 win against fellow Premier Division side, Kilrush Rangers. Charlie Morrison had a hat-trick for the winners with Craig Riordan hitting the target while Rory Hayes also raided for goal in his first appearance of the season. Eoghan O’Shea and Dean Neary goaled for Michael Clair’s men.

Leon Daly and Jordan Downes scored the goals for Bridge Utd as they held off neighbours Kilkishen Celtic 2-1 to advance.

Relegated from the top tier last season, Shannon Hibs’ hopes of mounting a lengthy cup run took a strong step forward when they proved too strong as expected for Manus Celtic. Gary Leahy, James Harty and Stephen Tuohy sent them on their way to victory.
