Preliminary Round

Kilgarvan 1-11 Sneem/Derrynane 1-10
The Kenmare District side got off to a good start with Colm Brosnan and Liam O Shea splitting the uprights before the South Kerry side levelled up soon after. However Tuosist were dealt a huge blow before the break with Liam O Shea having to retire with an injury. It was tit for tat at this stage with points exchanged and at the break it was Tuosist who led by 0-7 to 0-5. Conor O Brien and Raymond kicked points for Sneem/Derrynane and when their full forward Kevin O Sullivan found the net it looked as if Tuosist were in trouble. However, Colm Brosnan had 4 points and when Danny O Shea added another it was back in the melting pot once again. Sneem/Derrynane hit back with 2 points but Tuosist had the final say when Colm Brosnan hit home a penalty to claim a victory and a home tie against Ballyduff in the next round.
