The victory completed the senior hurling and football double for Kilmacud.

For long periods of the game, it looked as though St Judes were going to win their first ever Dublin senior title. It took 22 minutes for the first score of the game to arrive. When it did, it was a goal by Judes' Alan Connolly.
The Templeogue team took a 1-1 to 0-1 lead into break, and extended that lead to five points early in the second half.
However, Kilmacud fought back and a goal from Cian O'Connor gave them the lead in the 51st minute. Judes managed to retake a one-point lead but Kilmacud scored the final two points of the match to take the win.
