County Carlow and Roscrea emerged from their re-arranged Cup ties on Saturday with their towns cup aspirations still in tact while Mullingar received a walkover after New Ross failed to field.
Carlow’s comfortable home win over Navan 2nds underlines their ambitions to finish a tough season on a high. They will face fellow Division 1b outfit Ashbourne away from home this coming Sunday in round 2.
Third tier Roscrea are away to fourth tier Athy this Sunday after they overcame Boyne seconds in comfortable fashion.
Mullingar meanwhile advance to take on All Ireland Cup holders and Leinster league winners Tullamore in round two.
