Just three county titles were up for grabs this weekend but there was still plenty of stories emanating from these cracking contests.
Ballyboden St. Endas took on a Thomas Davis side looking to end a near 30-year wait for a Dublin title while Borris-Ileagh looked to end a 33-year wait in the Tipperary hurling championship.
Elsewhere, All-Ireland champions Corofin took the field for their replay against a Tuam Stars outfit looking to bridge a 25-year gap in Galway.
Here is your county final round-up.
The 2016 All-Ireland club champions are back on top in the capital after a hard-fought six-point win over Thomas Davis who were searching for their first county title since 1991.
It took the Tallaght outfit 18 minutes to register a score as two points from Ryan Basquel and one each from his brother Colm and Declan O’Mahony put Ballyboden four in front. Ryan Basquel would register two more as the favourites led 0-7 to 0-2 at the break.
Thomas Davis fought hard in the second half and at one point reduced the gap to three but Ballyboden never looked like losing and can now look forward to another crack at the Leinster club championship.
The All-Ireland champions are county champions for the seventh successive year following their narrow three-point win over Tuam Stars whose 25-year wait for a Galway title continues.
Despite starting strong, Corofin hit six first-half wides as Tuam took a slender one-point lead in at the break. Veteran Gary Sice shot Corofin in front with 11 minutes to go before Martin Farragher and Kieran Molloy sealed the win.
