The half time score was Longford North 13pts Bennekerry/Tinryland 11pts.In the second half Longford again scored first taking a lead of 16pts to 11pts, but B/T got the scoring going again with scores coming from Sinéad Lyons 4pts, Carrie Lawlor 3pts, Ciara Butler 1pt and Christine Scully 1pt. The game proved a very tense and exciting finish with B/T holding onto a 2pt lead to advance into the Leinster Final.

B/T came out in the second half with great hopes of winning but found that Dublin were upping their game and coming out very strong in the second half. The Carlow team were not playing as well as they did in the previous game and the first half of the final and only managed to score 8pts in the second half to Dublin's 22pts with scores coming from Carrie Lawlor 4pts, Deirdre Doyle 2pts, Sinead Lyons 1pt and Christine Scully 1pt. The final score-line was Dublin 31 to Carlow (B/T) 20. This was a great team performance.
