The Glas teamed played Clara from Offaly. It was a competitive game with good skill and fine hurling. St Martins started well and they kept the Clara forwards under control. There were fine scores taken in the first half. The lads continued this form for the second half and really enjoyed the game.

The dearg team played Durrow Ballinamere.  St Martins started slowly in this game and conceded some easy scores but slowly the lads got into the game and by half time had become competitive. In the second half St Martins took over and showed great determination.
