Despite being surrounded by the Regional defenders, Fairview's Paudie Quinn scores in their Premier League fixture at Dooradoyle
BALLYNANTY Rovers are the first outright leaders in the Premier League after the weekend results.
Goals from Eddie Byrnes, Aaron Nunan and Michael Guerin secured a 3-1 win over Regional Utd despite Peter Nash’s consolation in between.
Fairview’s resurgence gained further traction on Sunday when they shared the spoils with a bang in form Pike Rvs XI.
Eoin Hanrahan headed Pike into a first half lead but with four minutes remaining Paul Danaher fired in the equaliser.
An understrength Kilmallock paid the price on their trip to Annacotty in a 7-1 defeat. Goals from Dylan Sheehan, Evan O'Connor Killian Moloney, Graham Burke and Nathan O'Callaghan, Jason Lipper and Aaron Murphy did the damage. Niall Burchill netted for Kilmallock.
Geraldines and Nenagh AFC shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw in Garryowen. Ian O'Donoghue put Geraldines ahead but second half goals from Ciaran O'Reilly and an own goal tilted the tie Neagh’s way. However with ten minutes remaining Donie Curtin netted a crucial equaliser.
Elsewhere Prospect v Carew Park was abandoned just before half time with the sides scoreless while Charleville were unable to field a team versus Janesboro.
