Wicklow were crowned champions following a hard-fought victory. The Leinster side started brilliantly, racking up four unanswered points in as many minutes.

Conor Woods pointed a free for Down on six minutes, but it almost reached the 20 mark before they scored from play, as Conor O'Neill sent the ball over the bar. Wicklow's Mikey Lee sent over five points from frees before half-time and added two from play to give his a three-point lead at the break.

Scott Nicholson was introduced for Down shortly after the restart and made an immediate impact with a goal. Fintan Conway then struck his opponent, having already been shown a red card for dangerous play.

Lee put his side two points clear, and despite a late red for Christy Moorehouse, the Garden County held on.
