Marlay Martyrs won the 1998 Leinster Softball association 1st Division title winning all 9 games. Oddsox Green were their closest rivals, but a loss to the Martyrs on the second last matchday meant the title went to the Rathfarnham team.

The season was divided into two halves, with Phase 1 being East and West Divisions playing 5 games within their own division, followed by a Primary Conference (the top 3 from East and west) and Secondary Conference (the other 6 teams) playing a further 5 games amongst their Conference. Bonus Points were carried forward to Phase 2 based on position in Phase 1, but match results and points not.
