In the semi-finals INF and the Stables met with the Stables coming from 3-2 down to win 5-3 while Vintage tasted defeat for the first time this season when they lost 5-2 to Eire og.

With the final being played on the main stage it gave everyone a great view of the action and it was Eire Og’s Mark McLernon who struck first hitting double 16 with his 21st dart for victory over the Stables captain Shane Tallon. Peter Morris had a 20 dart leg to level the score against Micky Campbell but this turned out to be their only leg of the final as Paul McGahan then put Eire Og in front before Dermy McStay made it 3-1 beating Aaron Furphy.

Hugh Heaney put them just one leg away from the cup and Sam Frazer beat Sammy Toman to make it 5-1 it began what was surely a long night of celebrations for the men in green from the local Pinebank club.
