In an enjoyable Cavan decider, Castlerahan delivered the crown after suffering defeat in each of the last three finals.

This time around they enjoyed a 2-11 to 1-13 win against Crosserlough, coming back from six points behind with 15 minutes to go to win a high-quality clash. 

Coleraine are the champions in Derry following their 1-12 to 0-12 victory over Lavey. It’s just the second time in the club’s history to lift the John McLaughlin Cup. Lavey fought back from a sizeable deficit with substitute Caileann O’Boyle scoring seven points, but it wasn’t quite enough. 

Cargin prevailed in the Antrim final by defeat Creggan by 0-5 to 0-4.

Finally, in the Ulster club first round, Monaghan’s Scotstown advanced past Derrygonnelly of Fermanagh on a scoreline of 2-17 to 1-11.
