THE rains fell on Saturday.
"Yes, we were all drenched," said Barbara Grennell of St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh.
But Sunday morning came sunshine....and smiles.
Erin's Isle and Plunkett's folk lingered in the St Peregrine's car-park.
They were in no hurry to go home. They had much to talk about.
Plunkett's were preparing to head for the Navan Road, sounding the horns on arrival, 1-3 to 0-2.
Isles returned to Finglas with plenty to tell.
"It was a great advert for the game," continued Barbara.
"We had beaten Isles in the group stage on the Saturday, but we knew we faced a big test in the final.
"Isles played with such determination. They have some wonderful players.
"It was even enough in the first half.
"Isles really put it up to us, but we just managed to pull it out after half-time.
"It's a wonderful achievement for this group of girls. Nearly all of them are dual players.
"We have good depth in the squad."
