Camogie Update

senior girls

Our Senior Girls were pitted against Johnstownbridge in the semi finals of the championship and were overcome by the power of the current All Ireland Club champions. It was a tough day in the office for the girls and moments such as these can be character building but we are all enormously proud of this bunch of girls and know that there is more to come from them, as we build on our Senior League title win, in what will be a bright future.

A big thank you to the Management team of Seanie Gordon, Karen Christian, Tony O’Grady and Mick Glynn and to the helping hands of Paddy McKenna and Phil Shanahan who gave generously of their time and advice.

More importantly to the squad of girls who put in the effort, left everything on the pitch and were a pleasure to work with; you have our deepest gratitude and appreciation.

To Johnstownbridge and Celbridge, who now contest the final on Sunday in Clane at 1545, we at Clane Camogie wish you both all the best in your endeavours.

junior girls

Every cloud has a silver lining and once again the Junior girls delivered, just about, against a brave Celbridge display. Our girls had to dig deep and be as resilient as ever to pull this out of the bag with a one point victory over Celbridge.

The girls will now contest the Junior A Final in Clane at 1220 on Sunday against Kilcock who overcame Nurney. Please get out and support these girls. They have worked hard and unbeaten this year in the Championship as they go for their second Junior championship title in a row.

Best of luck to the Juniors and their management of Mick Glynn and Jimmy Byrne.
