The group stages were highly competitive with some very entertaining games along the way. At the end of the round robin the girls from Kilkenny were on the summit of the table and progressed straight to the Cup Final.
A semi-final then took place between Dublin and Galway in what was possibly the game of the day with huge amounts of skill and desire on display. After an epic battle Dublin progressed to the Cup Final by the narrowest of margins while Galway progressed to the shield final where Cork awaited. Both finals were played in a very competitive and sporting manner with Kilkenny the victors in the Cup Final while Cork were the winners in the Shield Final.
