Edenderry Eagles won their second Emerald Bowl in three years with a comprehensive 54-24 victory over Trinity College Dublin in the Final. Trinity had been helped by some questionable calls in their playoff match with Dublin Bay Raptors [4], and Louth Mavericks and Craigavon Cowboys, the best teams during the regular season, both faltered in the Semi-Finals, losing to the Edenderry Eagles and Trinity College (26-6) respectively.
