In gale force conditions Carrick-on-Shannon Community School defeated Ballinamore PPS on Tuesday to retain the Corn Breifne title.

Playing with the wind in the opening half Carrick CS opened up a commanding lead but as expected with the wind at their backs Ballinamore fought back in the second half. Ultimately Ballinamore fell just short in their bid to get back in contention and Carrick did enough to emerge victorious.
