final of all demanding extra time. In the end the fitness of the
Glanmire girls shone through and they went on to record a fine
win on a score line of 3.06 to 2.07.

In Section D Presentation Sec Ballyphehane proved to be the surprise
packet when , despite losing their two first round games, defeated

final. Christ the King SS Turner’s Cross ensured an all city final
when they defeated Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig in their semi
