This weekend saw a lot of action at the club scene. With the provincial club championships coming to a close, clubs have been celebrating their second trophy this season.

In Leinster, Dublin based Kilmacud Crokes were going for a provincial double. They triumphed in the football decider, hammering The Downs 1-12 to 0-08. However, Kilkenny kingpins Ballyhale Shamrocks got the better off them in the hurling equivalent, winning 2-22 to 2-19.

In Connacht, Galway club Moycullen won their first ever provincial title, beating Sligo champions Tourlestrane 0-13 to 0-06.

In Ulster's hurling decider, Antrim's Dunloy stopped Slaughtneil's bid for a provincial three in a row, narrowly winning 2-12 t0 0-16.

In Munster, reigning All Ireland Champions Ballygunner won their second provincial title in a row, beating Clare champions Ballyea 1-23 to 0-17.
