Five senior hurling championship ties took place on Saturday.

Two late Colin Ryan goals helped Newmarket on Fergus to a dramatic 2-18 to 1-17 win over Clooney-Quin, who are now consigned to the relegation play-off.


Éire Óg defeated Feakle 2-16 to 0-19 to secure a place in the last eight following their game in Shannon on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Cratloe’s 1-14 to 1-10 win over Broadford put them into the quarter-final, while Kilmaley scored a 0-20 to 1-15 win over O’Callaghan’s Mills.

Kilmaley will meet Clonlara in their final group game with the winners qualifying for the knock-out stages. Two injury time goals from Cathal O’Connell helped Clonlara to a very dramatic 4-16 to 3-18 win over Whitegate.

In the intermediate championship yesterday evening, Tubber beat Sixmilebridge 2-12 to 1-11, while Killanena defeated Inagh-Kilnamona 2-15 to 1-12.

There are five more intermediate championship games down for decision today.

In camogie, champions Inagh-Kilnamona scored a narrow 0-13 to 1-9 win over Feakle-Killanena. They had Aoibhin Ryan to thank for putting over an injury-time 45 to win it. Feakle-Killanena had led by three points 10 minutes from time.

Elsewhere in the senior camogie championship, Scariff-Ogonnelloe beat Kilkishen-Bodyke 1-14 to 1-7, while Truagh-Clonlara scored a 0-19 to 0-14 win over Sixmilebridge.
