In what was terrible weather conditions, Ulster failed to retain the interprovincial title losing by 2 points to Munster in the final. In the first game of the day in somewhat drier conditions, Ulster beat Munster . Next up for them was Leinster. At half time it was 3 points each. The beginning of the half saw Ulster move into the lead and it looked as if they were going to come out winners but Leinster finished the stronger and won 1-8 to 0-8. Their final game of the league was against Connacht and the Ulster girls won this game easily. With Munster beating Leinster, 3 teams were on equal points and it went to a penalty shoot out to see who qualified for the cup final, and who qualified for the shield. In the first shoot out, Munster beat Leinster and thus qualified for the cup final. Next up was Ulster and Leinster. Ulster were victorious and joined Munster in the cup final. The weather was getting worse for all the teams and in the shield final Connacht who hadn’t won a game came out on top to beat Leinster 3-8 ti 1-11,to clinch the shield title. Next up was the cup final. Munster raced into an early lead scoring 2 goals and Ulster were struggling to come to terms with the terrible weather conditions with a lot of surface water on the pitch. Another point from Munster put them 7 points up but a goal just on the stroke of half time by Ciara Mc Anespie narrowed the gap slightly for Ulster. The second half didnt improve for Ulster and with 5 minutes remaining they were still 4 points down. They did reduce the lead to 2 points but it wasnt enough and Munster held on to win. It was disappointing for Ulster having beat Munster in the opening game but they didn’t play to their potential and they seemed to find the weather conditions harder to deal with. However well done to all the team and to the Monaghan girls who all played their part –

Edel Corrigan, Linda Martin, Sharon Courtney, Aoife Mc Anespie, Grainne Mc Nally, Amanda Casey, Therese Mc Nally and Ciara Mc Anespie.
