Quarter-finals[edit]

The four teams who won both their first and second round matches were drawn against the four winners from the Round 3 "qualifiers".

The draw for the quarter-finals was originally supposed to occur after the last third round game (Ballinascreen versus Ballinderry) at Bellaghy.[7] However the draw could not take place because of Lavey's draw with Eoghan Rua.[7] Teams who have already met earlier in the championship could not be paired with each other again in the quarter-finals[7] - the number of such permutations meant the draw was delayed until after the Lavey versus Eoghan Rua replay at Glenullin.[7]

The Round 3 replay and delayed draw also led to the quarter-finals being postponed for a week.[7] They were originally intended to be played a week after the third round,[7] but the delayed draw meant teams would not know their opponents until Wednesday 12 August, which did not give them sufficient notice to play that weekend.[7]

The Ballinderry versus Glenullin match was billed beforehand as tie of the round, and the game everyone wanted to see in the final.[8] It did not disappoint. It was described as "one of the best games seen in this county for years".[8] An Lúb beat Newbridge in a "dogged" encounter,[9] while Bellaghy survived a late Magherafelt comeback to secure their place in the semis.[10] The Dungiven and Eoghan Rua game was supposed to take place on 23 August at 2.00pm at Foreglen.[11] However, before throw-in the game was postponed due to a water-logged pitch.[12] It was rescheduled for two days later in Celtic Park.[12] Dungiven won the game by six points.
