Larkin's goal wins derby for Bunclody

Defences and goalkeepers dominated and chances were kept to a minimum until Faye Larkin eventually broke the deadlock five minutes from the end to give Bunclody all three points.

Forth Celtic 4, All Blacks 1: Celtic opened their league campaign with a win when they overcame All Blacks 4-1 thanks to goals from Aisling O'Sullivan, Lauren McLoughlin, Grace Roche and Sarah Carroll.

U-16 Division 1

Aughrim Rangers 1, Shelburne F.C. 1: Shelburne made the long journey to Aughrim but came away with a well-earned point after a highly entertaining and hard-fought encounter.

New Ross Celtic 1, Moyne Rangers 5: Moyne have started the season impressively and made it two wins from two games when they travelled to New Ross Celtic and came away 5-1 winners.

Gráinne Rellis scored for Celtic but a Shauna Redmond hat-trick and goals from Amy Redmond and Shanise O'Reilly gave Moyne all three points.
