Ballylanders cause shock to set up final with Na Gaeil

Ballylanders created the upset of the day as they defeated Cork opposition to reach a Munster final and in truth, they were well deserving of their place as the Cork side could only find one score in the first half and gave themselves too much ground to chase as the Limerick side defended heroically to reach their first Munster final. Scores were hard to come by in this tie and when Glanworth got their first score in the 23rd minute of the first half through a goal, it only saw them behind at the break by two points, as Ballylanders were 0-5 to 1-0 to the good at the short whistle.

By the 48th minute of the game Glanworth were back in touching distance 0-7 to 1-3 down but it was as close as they were to get with Ballylanders adding an injury time point to give them a famous victory.

There was no upsetting the odds in the second encounter as a powerful Na Gaeil side from Tralee put their Waterford opposition to the sword early. Na Gaeil went to the break 2-7 to 0-4 to the good and they kept their opposition to just one point in the second half as they go on the play Ballylanders in the final fixed for the 19th October.
