St. Leo's College Carlow were crowned All-Ireland champions for the second time in four seasons at Longford's Pearse Park. It was a dramatic final with thirteen year old Lauren Dwyer kicking the winning point two minutes into injury time to settle a great win for the school.

St Leo's beat Loreto Grammar School, Omagh (Tyrone) in the final on a scoreline 3-7 to 2-9.

It was sweet revenge for St. Leo's as they had lost out to Loreto in the previous year's junior decider.
