The Division II U-16 Ladies Football Final between Kilmurry Ibrickane and Clooney/Quin was played on Sunday at 5.30pm in Lissycasey. The rain stopped just before throw in but a very strong wind was evident until after half time. This caused difficulty for the Clooney forwards who although had several chances went into the dressing room at half time 5 points down, 3-1 to Kilmurry Ib, 1-2 to Clooney/Quin. Whatever was said to the Clooney girls at half time it had an impact as immediately into the second half, they began their comeback, so much so that Kilmurry only scored 2 points throughout all the second half compared with Clooney's tally of 5-2. Final score Kilmurry Ibrickane 3-3; Clooney Quin 6-4.

With only about 10 minutes to go Clooney were down by a goal and it was looking unlikely that they would catch a very strong Kilmurry team. With most of the play for the second half in Clooney's half of the field, that one goal seem elusive, until a fine shot from Laura Costello evened the score. A few minutes later, Clooney took the lead with a point from Siobhan McCarthy. Their next score came from a surprise goal from substitute Emma Deegan, followed very closely by 2 goals from Mary Kate Moloney.

Clooney/Quin Team: Orlaith O'Neill, Jennifer Leamy, Kate McCarthy, Kathy Halpin, Gemma McEvoy, Maria Hehir, Hannah O'Brien, Aisling Corbett (Captain), Nicole O'Riordan, Mary Kate Moloney, Siobhan McCarthy, Jenny Costelloe, Lena O'Halloran, Laura Costelloe, Michelle Canny
