Unfortunately it was a disappointing end to the 2014 campaign for the Senior A’s. After the jubilation of 5 Championship’s in a row the previous weekend, the contrast in emotions could not have been greater when the final whistle went on Sunday. Opponents Oulart the Ballagh boasted many household names and All Ireland winners, and unfortunately for us they showed their class on Sunday. When the dust settles, we must remember that any year in which we win our Senior Championship can only be seen as a good year. Going forward we will have to look within the broader group in the Camogie section, and set in motion whatever plans may be necessary if we aim to achieve the level of performance which we saw from Oulart on Sunday.
Many thanks to everyone for the fine support on Sunday, and also to those who provided and served the refreshments afterwards.
Earlier on Sunday morning we saw a terrific performance from the Senior C’s when they defeated Good Counsel in their Championship semi-final. Playing into a stiff breeze our girls settled in quickly, and picked off some fine scores. They held a comfortable lead at half time, and in truth the result was never in doubt. They now play Castleknock’s first team in the FINAL this Sunday in O’ Toole Park, time to be confirmed.
On Saturday we have the U16A’s facing St Brigids in their Championship FINAL, venue and time to be confirmed. This is the premier Juvenile competition, and having overcome Lucan in the semi-final, hopes are high that the girls can hit this level of performance again. A large support will be required to push on the girls who will be underdogs against the League winners. Similarly the U16B’s are in the Shield final v Erin Go Bragh and we also await the venue and time for this fixture..
Keep and eye on the website later in the week for the venues and times for these important games.
