Nine players, representing five clubs took to the field in the fine sunshine to compete for the honour, of representing the South West at the County final.

The standard of hurling on display, was remarkable, with a few of these young u14 lads set to make the county senior panel in the future, and when the final score tally was in very little separated,1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

with little separating the contestants  until the ground strike.  Adian McGarry (All Saints) pocked
