Semi-final

Marion McCarthy scored a goal direct from a puckout in the semi-final against Dublin. A fabulous goal by Jo Dunne and the fact that Geraldine Wynne’s lastminute close-in free sailed inches over the bar enabled Kilkenny to beat Wexford by 2–6 to 2–5.

Final

Dublin had high hopes. Cuchulainn Crumlin had won the club championship earlier in the year. [7] and led by a wind assisted three points at half time but their challenge was a disappointment, despite Una Crowley scoring the game’s only goal. Angela Downey slipped over three quick points after the break, and Kilkenny were level within two minutes. Margaret Farrell added two points and Kilkenny were on top from then on. [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]
