St Declan’s (Kilmacthomas) 1 Carrigaline Community School 1 (AET)
(St Declan’s won 4-2 on penalties)
Prior to kick off the St Declan’s coach Kealon O’Neill said “there was a fierce determination in the school to win this cup for a third time”. Following this truly brilliant final his pre-match comment was certainly proved correct.
Played on the baize like playing surface of Kilrush Park, the home ground of Dungarvan United, this match will be remembered for a very long time to come because it had everything and the players of St Declan’s displayed their delight following the dramatic penalty shoot-out which enthralled the large attendance who turned up on what was a glorious day weather wise.
