The final was played last Saturday and the Winners were Kilkenny, Captained by : Stephen Cleary and the Plate Final, Won by: Cork, Captained by: Mark Tierney.
Skillfully and professionally organized by: Gilbert Williams, with the spirited encouragement and coaching of juvenile selectors, Christy Morgan, John Cahill, Ned Darcy, and the ever committed Pat Williams for the presentation of a perfect pitch.
