Semi-finals

Kilkenny goalkeeper Marie Fitzpatrick, drove a long free all the way to the Cork net in an exciting semi-final against Cork. After Liz O'Neill regained the lead for Cork, Marion McCarthy could batted a dropping ball from Ann Downey into the path of Marina Downey who tapped the ball into the net for Kilkenny’s winning goal. Two late goals from Barbara Redmond were not enough to gain Dublin a place in the final against an experienced Wexford team., for whom Paula Rankin’s goal at the start of the second half proved crucial.

Final

Wexford took the lead in the first minute when Siobhan Dunne scored, but it was to be their last score from play in the entire game. Angela Downey scored the game’s only goal two minutes from the end. [7] [8] [9] [10] [11]
