Marlay Hellfire 6 Drimnagh Cycos 12 – Marlay Hellfire went into the Final as huge favourites after an undefeated 12-game season, and having only been beaten once in the Irish League over the previous two-and-a-half-years, however, the Drimnagh Cycos, after an 8-3 season, surprised them in a 12-6 victory. Every player played his part according to Drimnagh spokesman Liam Farrell. [1] Liam Farrell scored both Drimnagh’s Touchdowns and Dave Quinn of Marlay Hellfire was game MVP (Most Valuable Player).
