There was a minor shock in the second round of the Bord na Mona Walsh Cup between Kilkenny and DIT at the Kilkenny Training Centre in Dunmore.

The All-Ireland champions, who fielded a team made up mainly of under-21 players,  were beaten by the students who scored two goals late in the first half to lead by 2-5 to 0-9 at the break.

They added two more goals in the second period to run out winners by 4-14 to 0-16.

Galway got the better of NUI Galway at Ballinasloe on a scoreline of 1-21 to 1-12 in their round one Walsh Cup encounter.

Brian Molloy scored the Galway goal in the opening period and despite a spirited display from the students, inspired by the exploits of Bobby Duggan,  they ran out comfortable winners.

Peter Duggan and Darach Honan found the net as Clare hammered Kerry by 2-27 to 0-8 in their Munster SHL Round 3 clash in Sixmilebridge.

Pa Cronin and Will Leahy raised green flags as Cork beat Waterford by 2-18 to 0-13 in a snowy Mallow.

There was football action in Round 3 of the McKenna Cup.
