ArrangementsEdit

The championship was organised on the traditional provincial system used in Gaelic Games since the 1880s, with Dunloy and Pearses winning the championships of the other two provinces. Marina Downey scored 4–5 and Angela Downey 3–6 in LIsdowney's semi-final victory over Dunloy, while Sinéad McMullan (1–2) and Majella McMullan (1–1) scored for Dunloy. Glen Rovers goalkeeper Máiread O'Leary helped secure their place in the final, with a series of reflex saves against Pearses.

The FinalEdit

Angela Downey scored four goals for Lisdowney in her last club final appearance, helping Lisdowney back from an astonishing ten points down.[3][4][5] Glen led by 1–10 to 0–6 at half time.
