It would be churlish to point out that North County 4 won less games than two other sides in the league (although I just have!). Seven wins and three losses was just about enough to pinch the title from Adamstown 2, with four games falling victim to the weather. Closer inspection reveals that County would probably have done a lot better if it weren't for the weather - the four games called off were all against bottom half sides - Mullingar, Sandyford (two matches) and The Hills.

North County are the only league champions who had fewer points than two of the chasing pack and yet still won the league on percentage. Greystones scored 21 more points, but finished fourth, whilst Adamstown scored 17 points more and finished second, just 0.04% behind the winners. It has to have been so very tight at the top, proving that even in defeats, every point counts.

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.
