The first round of the Pat O'Brien Cup was played last Sunday. I was taking a break in the White Mountains of New Hampshire - so unfortunately I do not have any reports. However, I did get the results.
Kerry defeated Cork after extra time, Armagh-Notre Dame beat Mayo by one point, and Aiden McAnespies beat the New England Celtics. McAnespies are though to the semi-final as theirs was a quarter final game.
Next Sunday's quarter finals will feature Shannon Blues v Armagh-Notre Dame and the Connemara Gaels v Kerry. Galway will play Wolfe Tones in a first round game that was postponed, and Donegal will have to wait another week to play the winners in the last quarter final game.
