Their third final in three weeks (including two Galway finals). Pearses overcame Abbeyknockmoy for a second time, on a scoreline of 3-4 to 2-5 after a titanic battle in Pearse Stadium.

Keith Connell continued his great form in tournament with a hat-trick of goals in the first half. Pearses led 3-3 to 1-1 at the halfway mark. Abbeyknockmoy fought back well in the second half, with Calem Mulry and Lee Cosgrave leading the charge. Pearses goalkeeper Jarlath Healy saved superbly late in the game as Pearses hung on bravely for victory.
