Meanwhile, St. Leonards are now six points clear in Division 1A following a hard-earned win over Duncannon. Gorey Celtic were held by Glynn Barntown as both sides dropped their first points of the season, while New Ross Celtic also won.

In Division 3A Ferns took advantage of Rathnure's inactivity to move three points ahead at the roof of the table. Fastnet also won to keep their own challenge on track.

Ferns continue to lead Under-16 Division 1 following a 3-3 draw with Wexford Albion. Moyne were successful in their first outing of the season while North End were not in action.
