Kieran O’Callaghan was the star man for Ballylanders as they maintained their interest in the Limerick SFC thanks to a 2-14 to 0-8 win over Newcastle West in Kilmallock on Sunday.

O’Callaghan kicked 12 points (11 frees) as Ballylanders ended the 100% record of Newcastle West. The result also keeps Ballylanders in contention for a place in the knockout stages of this year’s championship.

Centre-back Pa Fox goaled to help the winners to a 1-7 to 0-4 lead at the break. And an early second-half goal from Mark O’Connell put the game beyond doubt.
