Glentoran Women (previously Glentoran Belfast United) are the most successful side in the competition, having won it nine times, with Linfield Ladies the next most successful with three victories.

Their most recent success came in 2019 when an early strike from Emma McMaster gave them a  1-0 win over Linfield Ladies in the decider at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

The 2020 edition of the competition was cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
