Henry scored twice as the Munster Senior League side came from behind to win.

For Swilly, it was a disappointing end to an enjoyable game in which they more than matched their opponents, despite not being at full strength.

Dylan Hegarty headed them in from on 16 minutes only for Greg Henry to equalise on 27.

The visitors had the better of the second half and Henry struck the post from long range before sneaking in at the back post for the winner on 86 minutes.
