Arrangement

A record eleven counties participated in the championship, the highest number since the separation of senior and junior championships in 1968. Antrim withdrew from the championship and gave a walkover to Cork in their tie scheduled for June 19. Tipperary surprised fancied Galway in the quarter-final.

Final

Claire Kelleher scored the clinching goal for Cork five minutes from the end, carrying the ball round the hitherto impenetrable Dublin defence without having the ball tapped off her stick. That score left two points between the sides and although Dublin used all their resources they could not break down the resolute Cork defence. Cork shot a surfeit of wides in the first half and did not get their first score until the 12th minute, when Dublin were three points up. Val Fitzpatrick then hit a cracking shot which Yvonne Redmond could not hold to make it 1-1 to 0-3 and Mary Geaney went on to give Cork the lead for the first time. [7] [8] [9] [10] [11]
