Match was originally fixed for 17:45 in Carlow town but started at 18:30 in Bagnelstown due to confusion over the venue. The visitors got off to a good start with two unanswered points from John Barron and Willie Ryan. It was the homeside who dominated the next 15 minutes as they went ahead on a scoreline of 0-6 to 0-3. However Tullogher had a good spell 10 minutes before the half and managed to go in for the break just one point down.


Erins Own started the second half brightly with two unanswered points however Tullogher showed good spirit to get back into the game with two points from John Barron and a sublime point from Ted Cullinane that really lifted the visitors. With 10 minutes on the clock Erin’s Own introduced their county hurlers that were in action against Limerick in the National League earlier in the day and there was an immediate impact from their star men. Tullogher stood firm to the challenge and managed to weather the storm in the last 10 minutes to win the match. Best for Tullogher were John Barron, Joe McCarthy, Mark O’ Brien, Peter Meggs and Edmund Cullinane.
