In their next encounter Tipp played Cork and qualified for the final on a score of Tipperary 2-07 Cork 0-09.

In the final which took place in Millstreet Tipp were up against Cork Rebel Og.

It was the young rebels that got a dream start as Shane Kingston had the Premier net shaking. However Emmett Moloney played the captains part and had the rebel net shaking with a superb goal.

From this point onwards the Tipp boys showed a more determined approach to the task on hand, looking sharper and focussed.

The midfield pairing of Stephen Quirke and Thomas Nolan coupled with centre back Danny Owens put their authority on the game.

Cork had to rely heavily on their last line of defence Ronan Donovan so as to ensure his side of any meaningful participation as the opening period neared conclusion. The halftime score of 1-06 to 1-04 in favour of Tipp.

The score did nor reflect the true dominance of the premier boys performance during the first of the contest.

Upon the resumption the Tipp pressure yielded fruitful returns with goals coming from Michael Goherty and Jack Kennedy which put Tipp collecting the trophy which they had won for the first time in 2010.

Such was the power of the premier team as they added 2-06 to their final tally while conceding a mere two points.

The final score reading Tipperary 3-12 Cork Rebel Og 1-07.

Full credit to the management team of Tommy Sheehan, Kieran Healy, Tommy Ryan and Tommy Landers for a job well executed.
