Final [May 1]
Portadown        w/o Cliftonville   

NB: on Apr 29, Cliftonville were disqualified from the competition for
    having played Simon Gribbon in their semifinal replay against Linfield;
    Gribbon had played for a junior club in an earlier round and was
    therefore ineligible.  As Linfield's protest came too late (more than
    48 hours after the tie) they were not eligible to take Cliftonville's
    place in the final and the Cup is awarded to Portadown without the
    final being played.
