Quarter-finals

Final

Dublin's victory came at the third attempt in successive finals. [7] Their first goal came from right full back Germaine Noonan in the 13th minute when her long shot was let drop through the fingers of Tipperary goalkeeper Breda Kennedy. Three minutes later Marie Connell struck for a second goal and Dublin were not caught afterwards. [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] They led by 3-5 to 0-2 at half time. Sean Kilfeather wrote in the Irish Times:

With the wind behind them Dulbi started strongly and, driving the ball great distances, they kept Tipperary under a constant barrage in the early part of the game. Tipperary kept their heads under pressure, however, and might have taken the lead but for a splendid save by the Dublin goalkeeper Yvonne Redmond from a shot by Deirdre Lane. By the 13th minute Tipperary were quite happy to be in arrears by only two points. [13]
