Byrne Cup win-St Martins defeated Shamrocks of Ballyhale in the Byrne Cup final which was called off earlier in the week due to the bad weather. Shamrocks had first use of a strong cross field  breeze and the half time score was 9 points each. Martins added two goals in the second half the first came from a pass  from John Mulhall to Joe Maher who finished well, the second came from James Dowling who was set up by John Maher. Shamrocks replied with a goal of their own in the dying moments to leave the full-time score 2-12 to 1-13. Johns Park was in in good condition and the good size crowd enjoyed a well contested final. The Cup was presented to Martins Captain Patrick Nolan by Joe Pyke County Board rep.
