This was a weekend of intense camogie action and was enjoyed by all.  Our intrepid team of Dublin Camogie Reporters now includes the redoubtable Rachel Rogers and Ruth King who bring technical nous and descriptive ability to the craft that is ‘match reporting’.  Please read their reports for a blow by blow account of the action.

In the National Sports Campus, Abbotstown, with, as Rachel Rogers described it, ‘a sky a swathe of blue overhead’ - a closely fought match in the Inter 1 Final between Erin’s Isle and Peregrine’s saw the Finglas team win by a nose as Erin’s Isle’s Megan Thomas separated the two teams by a single point in the final minute.

In the same venue later that day, the ‘We Are Dublin’ Dublin Senior 2 Championship saw St Oliver Plunkett’s line up against Cuala. The north-sider’s prevailed over their south-side opponents in a very competitive match with a point separating the sides.  As Ruth King noted in her match report, it was a family affair for the Murphy family with a brother (John (Plunkett’s) & Donal (Cuala)) on each of the management teams.

There were a plethora of shield finals & semi-finals on the day.  A quick roundup below:

  • Naomh Padraig overcame Naomh Fionnbarra in the Inter 1 Shield Final
  • Lucan Sarsfield fought back to overcome CBC Portabello in a close match for the Inter 2 Shield Final.
  • Faughs/Celtic won the Junior 1 Shield Semi-Final against Thomas Davis.
  • In the Junior 2 Shield Final Raheny B came out as winners with an impressive score against Skerries Harps B.
  • St Finians beat Lucan Sarsfields C in the Junior 3 Shield Final.
  • Naomh Peregrine’s, with a mammoth score, prevailed over Cuala C in the Junior 4 Shield Final.
  • St Anne’s, in likewise fashion, built an imposing score to win the Junior 4 Shield Championship Semi-Final against Faughs/Celtic C.

To the victors and losers alike remember Rudyard Kipling’s words ‘If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and Treat those two impostors just the same…’

Congratulations to all Camogie players and their coaching/management teams who turned out on the most glorious of days.  You all did yourselves and your teams/clubs proud.
