Both teams exchanged penalties to leave it level at half time at 11 all.

Tralee-Listowel regained the lead when Caoimhin Finn showed great pace to score a try from a beautiful cut-out pass. Seamus Lyne converted and also added a penalty to extend the lead to 10 points. Killorglin scored a converted try from a series of forward drives to narrow the gap to 3 points with 5 minutes remaining.

The home team dominated the last few minutes and scored the clinching try at the death, when Jerry Finnegan crashed over after repeated close range rucks. Seamus converted leave the final score 28-18 in a highly entertaining and sporting match.

Shannon ladies fought back scoring and converting. (Tralee 10 – Shannon 7)

Just before half time Ashlea Sheehy broke the game line and scored, Muirne Wall slotted it over the posts.

Half time score Tralee 17 – Shannon 7

Second half: With rain/ cold getting worse and the wind in Shannon’s favour, it was a tough second half, Tralee defended well not giving Shannon any chance to breakthrough.

Tralee held tough and a break by Vanessa Dineen saw Tralee add another 5points to the score board.

The forwards did great work holding the ball on Shannon’s line and quick ball out helped Vanessa over the line for her 2nd try of the day which Muirne Wall converted.

With the closing minute of the match Muirne Wall crossed the line for the final score of the match.
