Kilmurry led by a goal at half time, 1-7 to 0-7, their goal having come from Amy Sexton.

KIlmihil had the better of matters in the early stages of the second half when they struck for a brace of goals from Edel McNamara to open a three point lead.

Kilmurry Ibrickane hit back strongly and three unanswered points had them ahead in injury time before Becky Mahon struck for the equalising score which ended Kilmurry Ibrickane’s involvement in this season’s championship
