Farrell Retains All-Ireland Crown
Dublin's Mark Farrell won the All-Ireland title for the 5th consecutive time, following a marathon shoot-out in the final against Northern Ireland's Kenny Beggs. They could not be separated during open play, with the match finishing 0-0 after extra-time and it took 17 shots each in the resulting shoot-out before a winner could be found. As the tension grew, Farrell held his nerve the longest to eventually win 6-5. Video Highlights by Martinog Bradley

It was on a “play-as-you-go” basis, with 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 1 bonus point for each game played, to encourage as much participation as possible.
