YMCA were undefeated with 11 victories and 3 no results. Deserved winners of the Division, they scored most points and won by virtue of their percentage.
Adamstown 3 and The Hills 4 tussled all season, with Adamstown just about coming out on top
Adamstown won Division 12 with a record of 10 wins and only one defeat. They had only two no results and benefitted from one walkover win. They won the league by a clear 13.01% over The Hills but scored two less points. This makes them one of six teams to win their league with fewer points than another team in their Division.
Over a quarter of all matches in Division 13 didn't take place this season - mainly due to the weather. It left something of a disjointed feeling to many sides' season, with Railway Union 6 and North Kildare 3 only completing eight matches each, and Laois 3 only seven.
Phoenix claimed Division 13 honours scoring the highest percentage and the most points.
Bagenalstown 2 look good all season, but it is Leinster 7 who pinch the title in Division 14
Division 14 saw 219 players take to the field, although 97 of these only played one or two games.

The last weekend of the season duly saw Merrion 2 crowned Division 3 champions, after they brushed aside Leinster 2 in double quick time.
In our continuing series of statistical breakdown of all result cards and the numbers they produce we have now arrived at the bonus categories. Every 50 or 100 runs in an innings and every five wicket (or more haul) is covered below.
Short history of relegation and promotion to / from Division 1 of the Open Competitions
There are still a few important placings to be decided in this last 'scheduled' weekend.
The match turned out to be a remarkable affair. Leinster found themselves at 80-8 fairly quickly, with Lynal Jansen taking 4-10 from 10 overs. A short afternoon's work for Rush appeared likely, before Cornwall's Danny Coad took a liking to the Rush attack, hitting an 89 ball 97
The OCC has considered the matter of the three outstanding Division 1 refixtures - Cork County v Clontarf; Railway Union v YMCA; Cork County v Malahide.
Clontarf's 12th league title sees them closing in on Pembroke, who lie in third place on the all time list with 13 titles. Phoenix (15) and Leinster (23) are above them. Remarkably, it was Clontarf's sixth league and cup double, following on from previous triumphs in 1992, 1995, 2000, 2007 and 2009. Only Phoenix (4), Leinster (4) and Pembroke (2) have ever won more than one double, and Clontarf's achievement is remarkable. There have only been ten doubles in the last 30 years, and Clontarf have won six of them (Leinster, North County, The Hills and YMCA are the others)
A lot will be decided this weekend in the various OC Leagues - follow it all on Match Centre.
