Junior Final. Gabriel Rangers 1-22 Fingallians Dublin 0-8.
With a display akin to the Donoughmore one Gabriel Rangers from the Ballydehod area of West Cork covered themselves in glory when the were much to strong for a very young Dublin side. The Dubs started in whirlwind fashion and had 2 points on the board in as many minutes. They flattered to deceive and when Gabriels found their range, it was mostly one way traffic.

Nollaig Cleary their star forward and goal poacher supreme, and who had scored 10 in her previous 3 games, was unlucky not to find the net on 2 occasions, when superb saves and defending denied her. After that she concentrated on point scoring and what a magnificent return she had over the hour slotting over 8 in all, from play. That was matched by an equally effective Claire O’Brien 5 of those coming from frees.
