To take the title they defeated Killorglin Community College but it took two games to separate the sides.
Draw After Extra Time
The first game ended in a draw after extra time.
This was played in Austin Stack Park, Tralee and the replay was played in the Dr. Crokes Pitch in Killarney.
The replay was also a very tight contest and scores were all square with time almost up.
