In the Trophy 2 competition, Mount Sion, St Vincents, Kilmacud and James Stephens progressed to the semi-finals. Vincents were beaten by Kilmacud and James Stephens overcame Mount Sion. The final was contested by Kilmacud and James Stephens in an intense and evenly balanced affair. James Stephens won by a very narrow margin.
The overall winner on the day, however, were the Kilmacud Crokes' parents. The perfect hosts in every respect. Many thanks to all!
