An historic meeting! - Outward bound Brendan Cummins, the last of the Senior competitors to puck away meets Wexford's Deirdre Coffer who was pucking towards the finish line.
The Senior Mens competition was played over the "Lower" course due to the prevailing weather conditions on Finals Day. They started at the 2.5km course start line pucking to "An Gábhlan" and back to the start line where they turned and repeated the course for a second time. The course distance was also 5km.

Cillian Kiely of Offaly became the first Boys Under 16 Champion to win 2 titles - 2011 & 2012. Cillian also set a new course record in the Under 16 event beating Aaron Murphy's (Limerick) record set in 2007 by 2 pucks.
The scores in the Comórtas Beirte - Pairs competition reflect the "lower" course distance as above in the Senior Mens' final.
Patricia Jackman of Waterford has set a new record in the Camogie Championship winning her 4th consecutive title!
