Report by: Grainne Hogan - Dublin Camogie PRO Og Reporter



Dublin travelled to Cusack Park in Ennis today, to face off against the home side Clare in round four of the Glen Dimplex All Ireland Senior Camogie Championship. It was a vital match for both teams, a loss for Clare would see an end to their championship campaign and a loss for Dublin would see them slip from their position in the top three of the group. Despite the sunny day, the strong breeze would be a crucial factor in the game to come, countless wides were generated by the wind for each county today.

Captain Hannah Hegarty started the Dubs off on the right foot by winning the toss, however it took some time before each team hit their stride. The first score of the game didn’t come until near the ninth minute, when vice-captain Aisling Maher broke free on the left wing and sent the sliotar over the bar. After two points from the Banner County, they then threatened a goal. Clare’s Orlaith Duggan came speeding towards the Dublin goal with Roisin Baker hot on her heels, she came one on one with goalkeeper Eabha Mooney who stood strong and blocked her down, foiling any plans of a goal, for now. Clearances from the likes of Emma O’Byrne and Muireann Kelleher set up opportunities for points that Aisling O’Neill and Aisling Maher capitalised on. Full forward Aisling O’Neill’s true speed was on display this afternoon, as she effortlessly weaved through several defenders and cracked a low ball into the left corner of the net. As the half time whistle blew the girls in blue held the lead, with the scoreboard reading Clare 0-4 to Dublin 1-4.

The intensity of the game picked up as the second half got underway, the fresh legs of Claire Gannon, Kerrie Finnegan and Aoife Walsh allowed the Dubs to keep on top of the game and continue to log points on the board. Issy Davis, who can usually be found in the back line, took up the corner forward position today and added herself to the list of scorers when she turned over Clare’s puckout and sent the sliotar back to where it came from & straight over the bar. Just as Dublin pulled away with a comfortable 5 point lead, the Clare captain Clare Hehir got her side back in the game with a sharp goal in the 27th minute. The banner county dug deep to close the gap and the match ended in a draw, Clare 1-09 to Dublin 1-9. It wasn’t enough to keep Clare in the championship, but it was enough to keep the girls in blue in 3rd position of the group and continue their pursuit of the All-Ireland title.
