Championship statistics[edit]

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • The Munster final between Limerick and Waterford ends in disarray as a fight breaks out amongst the players. Many spectators rush the field and also join in the melee. Officials fail to clear the field to restart the match so Limerick are awarded the title as they were winning by a considerable amount at the time.
