Chris Nolan and Ciaran Whelan turned on the style at Parnell Park on Saturday to secure this extra-time victory for Carlow over Antrim. With a combined tally of 2-16, the dynamic corner-forwards were instrumental in the win.

Antrim led by five points in the 51st-minute, but Carlow got to grips with the game and will now face Dublin in a round two play-off on June 6.

After James McNaughton and Conal Cunning (two) points had moved Antrim into an early lead, Carlow fired back through Nolan, Jamie Wall and Kevin McDonald.

A five-point haul by McNaughton gave Antrim a 0-8 to 0-7 interval lead, before Nolan’s goal on 43 minutes. A Cunning goal sparked a dominant spell for Antrim, only for a Whelan goal to offer Carlow a lifeline. Following a brace of frees from Nolan, the sides were level at the end of normal time (2-12 to 1-15).

Padraig Hynes’ 1-1 salvo helped open up a five-point cushion on 70 minutes and Whelan, Aaron Amond and Nolan eased Carlow home.

Scorers – Carlow: C Nolan 1-11 (9f), C Whelan 1-5 (4f), P Hynes 1-2, J Wall, K McDonald, J Nolan, A Amond 0-1 each
