All of the reports and results from the opening round of the junior football championship

Brought to you in association with Sammy Kelly Builders

Today marked the first round of the junior football championship as six games were down for decision across the county.

The Harps, Portlaoise, Ballyroan-Abbey, Park-Ratheniska, The Heath and O’Dempseys/Camross all got their championship campaigns off to winning starts today.

Portlaoise managed a remarkable clean sweep of opening round wins across their senior, intermediate and junior games.

Some matches were closer than others, with mere a one point going down in McCann Park as The Harps edged out Portarlington.

Meanwhile Ballyroan-Abbey and The Heath ran out convincing winners over Spink and Stradbally respectively.

Following Round 1 games, teams have been split into Winners and Losers Sections for Round 2.
