Having beaten UCC in the first round, Co Kerry visited Waterford Vikings in confident mood but lost out ultimately in a rain affected game which finished in gathering gloom at around 9.45pm Co Kerry batted first and were bowled out for 137 which the Waterford side eventually overhauled as night fell.
In the final Cork County won the toss and batted. Good early bowling by Richard Waddell and Laurence O'Brien restricted Cork County to 81 for four off 28 overs. Steve Alleyne, however, held the innings together with a fine 84 and Jerry Bramble (53) and John Power (46) attacked the tiring Waterford bowlers in the final ten overs to bring Cork County to 259 for six. Bramble and Power proved too strong for the Waterford batsmen as they succumbed for a total of 71 with the Vikings captain, Tony Brett, resisting gamely to score 34.
