All in all, an excellent tournament played in almost perfect weather conditions, which saw 19 of the 20 games completed.

A great way of showcasing the talent available in the next rung for the interprovincials, while also providing a high standard of competitive matches for the Ireland Under 19s as they attempt to qualify for the World Cup in the West Indies next year.
