In the Roinn C County Football Final Emeralds caused a massive upset when they defeated near rivals Tullaroan played in Tullaroan on a scoreline of 1-10 to 0-3. Tullaroan had already annexed hurling titles at Roinn B U-16 and Minor C but this proved a bridge too far for them in what was an exciting season for them and for Emeralds it was just reward for their efforts at underage.
