Nenagh Ormond have retaken the lead in Division 2A, moving a point clear of Banbridge who tripped up away to fellow promotion hopefuls Highfield. Meanwhile, Cashel upset the form book when pipping hosts Queen's in a cliffhanger at the Dub.
Armagh's reward for winning all of their matches over the first half of the season is a nine-point advantage at the top of Division 2B. They have three Leinster clubs tucked behind them, while struggling Thomond and City of Derry really need to hit the ground running in the New Year.
Rainey Old Boys head into the Christmas break with a one-point lead at the top of Division 2C. It is particularly tight at both ends of the table, with only four points covering the leading quartet and the three bottom sides separated by just three points.
