The competition was broken into A and B teams with the 12 A teams being split into two groups of 6 with each team getting 5 games, and the 9 B teams playing 4 games in a round robin format.

Each team played 9 games in total when A and B team games were combined, with each teams results counting towards the end total. Four Masters would like to thank all the participating teams for attending and their behaviour throughout, all the referees who helped run the games, parents that helped out with the tea room on the day, volunteers that helped move goalposts to and from Tír Conaill and with car parking.

Well done and thanks goes to all the players and clubs who made the day an enjoyable blitz for all involved.
