Semi-final

The exclusion of All Ireland champions Dublin in a dispute over the ban on hockey players (in practice the All Ireland championship was organised by the National Camógaíocht Association while Dublin remained in the old Association with support from Kildare and clubs in Meath and Wicklow) was to lead to an eight-year-long split in the Camogie Association. It opened the way for Louth to win the Leinster championship once more, defeating Meath by 8–2 to 4–1 in the Leinster final in Darver. A goal entering the third quarter from Kitty Buckley and two from Renee Fitzgerald were the turning points in Cork's 6–3 to 2–3 victory over Louth in the semi-final. Louth refused Cork's offer of a walk-over in the All Ireland semi-final, also fixed for Darver. They paid Cork's travelling expenses, organised a welcome reception and then made their exit from the championship by an 11-point margin. Patsy McCullagh scored all of Galway's 2–1 in the semi-final in Belfast but missed the final.

Final

Renee Fitzgerald scored four goals in the final as Cork won by 15 points. Cork were not presented with the O'Duffy Cup as Dublin had not returned it. They played in grey, green and white, the colours of county champions, Old Aloysians, who supplied ten of the starting twelve. [7]
