The FAI Junior Cup continued this weekend with six NT&DL sides involved in the third round of action with the biggest shock coming in the all North tie as second division Moneygall went to Thurles Greyhound Stadium on Sunday to face Thurles Town and won 3-1.

Moneygall took the lead through Cathal Kennedy before Peter McNamara equalised for Thurles before half time. Early in the second half Paidí Williams put Moneygall ahead, the third game in a row that he has scored a crucial goal for Billy McCormack’s charges, before Josh Wynne made sure of the win with his side’s third goal five minutes from the end.

BT Harps welcomed Cahir Park to Templemore and progressed to the next round with an excellent 3-1 win. Cahir took the lead midway through the first half but a Johnny Coleman penalty saw the sides go in level at the break. A second penalty from Coleman put Harps in front early in the second half before a Stefan Leahy finish twelve minutes from time secured an impressive win for the home side.
