Miscellaneous[edit]

  • The Munster semi-final between Cork and Limerick was abandoned with four minutes left in the match. Lloyd's News reported that "betting" was the cause of a dispute.
  • Monaghan retain the Ulster title for the only time in their history. It remains their last provincial triumph.
  • Due to a delay in the southern province, Clare represented Munster in the All-Ireland semi-final and defeated Galway to qualify for the All-Ireland final. Cork subsequently defeated Clare in the Munster final and claimed their place in the All-Ireland decider.
  • The All-Ireland final between Cork and Laois was the very first championship meeting between the two sides. Their second championship meeting did not take place until 2011 when Cork were victorious. As a result of this, Laois were the only team that Cork had played but never beaten in the championship.
  • Laois become the 10th team to win the All-Ireland crown. It remains their only triumph championship title.
