Antrim went into the final against Derry as underdogs, given that they had already lost to their neighbours in the Ulster semi-final and in the first round of the All-Ireland group stages.
However there was a determination and steel about the Saffron challenge from the first whistle with Niamh McKay picking up the break from the throw-in and placing Rianna McBride for the first score.
Niamh along with Shauna McDonnell started in the forward line and Shauna scored a brilliant individual goal in the 46th minute to secure a 3-9 to 2-6 win. Bronagh Laverty had a strong showing at midfield while Beth McAuley captained the side from wing-half-back.
Both Aimee Traynor (0-1) and Niamh Donnelly came into the game as substitutes. Maeve Mulholland completed the SEVEN. Although she didn't get her opportunity in the final, Maeve played in every game up to the semi-final.
In addition Bridget Delargy, who plays camogie for Cushendall and football for Conn Magee's, had an excellent game at full-back.
