They were comfortable winners over Ballinacourty, who lost former Wateford hurler Richie Foley to a second yellow card in the 21st minute.

There was just a point between the sides at the interval, but The Nire extended their lead by reeling off six of the first seven points of the second-half.

Darren Guiry slotted home a goal in injury-time to put the icing on the cake and round off the win.

Former Waterford dual star Liam Lawlor delivered a man of the match display. Lawlor and Conor Gleeson, who played a starring role in the Deise’s All-Ireland U21 victory this year, scored 0-4 each for the victors.
