A fiercely contest set of games ensued, with the Hinch Minis producing some very notable performances and also getting to enjoy free pizzas courtesy of Dominos during a break in the games, dished out by Ulster Captain Johann Muller and his Ulster team mate Roger Wilson.
The Festival finished with a short ceremony to give out two awards, both chosen by the Ulster Branch Staff running the event, with one for Fair Play which went to Armagh Minis 2nd Team and one for Best Skills which went to the Ballynahinch Bucks squad!!
