Everything you need to know about the Irish stars lining out in the AFLW Finals SeriesThe last two rounds of regular season games have been scrapped amid the Covid-19 crisis, with a new three-week, six-team finals series in place.

Eight Irish players are in line to feature as things stand — two more are ruled out through injury — after it was announced earlier that Dublin and Melbourne duo Sinéad Goldrick and Niamh McEvoy would miss out after heading home to Ireland.

So below is some background all the Irish players you can keep an eye out for, and everything else you need including fixture details and TV coverage (You can stream every game live on the AFL Women’s official app and the AFL Live app, womens.afl and AFL.com.au will livestream every game, with coverage also available on the Telstra TV AFLW app.)

All finals are elimination affairs, and will be played behind closed doors. 

Brisbane Lions

Three wins, two losses, one draw, third in Conference A.

Orla O’Dwyer (Tipperary)

O’Dwyer became a treble star when she signed for Brisbane, after establishing herself as one of the most prominent dual stars in the country with Tipperary.

An All-Ireland intermediate football championship winner in 2017 and 2019, O’Dwyer has also captained the Premier’s camogie outfit. After CrossCoders helped her put pen to paper — even before the trial — O’Dwyer scored on her Brisbane debut with her first touch. 

Still only 20, O’Dwyer — who was actually born in Australia — has put her college commitments at UL on hold to chase the AFLW dream, and her star continues to rise on the other side of the world.

- Looking forward: the winners of North Melbourne-Collingwood will play either Carlton or Brisbane in the last four, while the other battle will be between the respective victors of GWS Giants-Melbourne and Fremantle-Gold Coast.

A chara

Following on from the statement released on March 12th by the GAA, An Cumann Camógaíochta and Ladies Gaelic Football Association, I wanted to update you on Féile 2020. In light of the ongoing suspension of activities, the GAA, An Cumann Camógaíochta and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association have decided that a number of coaching and games initiatives will not proceed in light of the prevailing circumstances. Included in this is Féile 2020.

I appreciate that this might be disappointing to many of you, and that there has already been a significant amount of work undertaken in so many clubs in preparation for Féile. I would also like to reassure you that when games activity re-commences, we will provide an adequate games schedule for our players at all ages and grades.

In the meantime, the GAA, An Cumann Camógaíochta and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association are encouraging all members to continue to exercise caution relating to social distancing and coughing and sneezing etiquette and continue to refer to HSE.ie for more detailed advice.

Unbeaten Tipp Intermediates record 2 nd League win!
Tipperary 2-06 Dublin 0-01.
Tipperary Camogie Intermediates played Dublin in St Pats / MIC College pitch,
Thurles on Saturday, Feb. 29 th in very difficult conditions and came out on top in a closely contested game. The score-line does not fairly reflect the even play for much of this game as Tipperary had played with the wind advantage in the first half. Points from Andrea Loughnane and Emma Flanagan gave Tipperary a good start but Tipp were finding a green flag until Clodagh McIntyre pounced on an opportunity in the Dublin small square to flick the sliotar to the net. Rosanna O'Donnell was proving an ideal target at full forward for Tipp attacks with Emma Flanagan’s quick turns giving Dublin trouble. A disputed Clodagh McIntyre point caused some confusion at half-time as Tipperary went in 1-05 to 0-00 ahead having played with the assistance of Storm Jorje.
It was in the second half however, that this Tipp side showed their true
commitment to every tackle and possession with Sarah Delaney, sub, Caoimhe
Perdue, Maureen Ryan carrying the ball to good effect against the wind. Tipp
backs valiantly preventing several Dublin goal-chances with block-downs,
interceptions and relieving clearances. Are error by Dublin gave Clodagh
McIntyre an opportunity to bury a second goal past a Dublin defender as the
goalkeeper was out of goal to seal the victory. Manager Bill Mullaney will be very pleased with this side’s huge commitment and team spirit.
Tipperary: Emma Mulqueen - Kiladangan, Thea Curtin - Newport, Sabrina Larkin – Shannon Rovers, Ciara Ryan - Silvermines, Hazel McAuliffe - Nenagh, Maureen Ryan - Drom, Nicole Shelley - Cashel, Claire Stakelum - Holycross, Mary Bourke – Drom, Sarah Delaney – Boherlahan, Andrea Loughnane – Thurles Sarsfields (0-2), Ciara McKeogh – Burgess, Emma Flanagan – Newport (0-2), Rosanna o Donnell – Anacarty, Clodagh McIntyre – Lorrha (2-2).

Style Meets Substance as Littlewoods Ireland Launches Camogie Leagues Ahead of Double-Header

Wednesday, 29th January 2020: Littlewoods Ireland and the Camogie Association were today joined by top Camogie players; 2019 All-Ireland winner Heather Cooney from Galway and Kilkenny superstar Katie Power, to launch the 2020 Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues.

Camogie, like many women’s sports in Ireland, is going through a transformative and revolutionary period in terms of style and culture. To highlight this change and the real women of substance who are leading it, Littlewoods Ireland have produced a short film with the message ‘Style Meets Substance,’ featuring Heather Cooney, Katie Power, Cork’s Amy O’Connor, Waterford’s Niamh Rockett and Clare’s Naomi Carroll. The short film will be released later this week.

The 2020 season will begin this weekend with two double-headers in Páirc Uí Chaoimh and LIT Gaelic Grounds, as Cork take on Waterford on Saturday ahead of the Cork hurlers versus Tipperary and Limerick facing Tipperary on Sunday ahead of the Limerick hurlers against Galway. This year’s Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues will see a number of double-headers taking place throughout the competition with the GAA, opening the game up to a wider audience.

The season will see the trial of six new playing rules during the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues following an engagement process with players, managers, referees and other key stakeholders in 2019.

Littlewoods Ireland Managing Director Rossa Butler stated: “This is our fourth year as title sponsor of the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues and over those years we have seen the sport evolve. The introduction of these trial rules will bring added interest to the League which is great for players and fans alike. There has been a complete culture shift around women’s sport in Ireland and all of us at Littlewoods Ireland are proud to be part of that conversation. We want to showcase camogie for the spectacle that it is and inspire people to get behind the sport and the players.”

Speaking about the upcoming Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues, President of the Camogie Association Kathleen Woods said: “I am eagerly awaiting the start of the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues this weekend and the return of intercounty competitions for 2020.

“Last year’s campaign culminated in a thrilling Final that set the tone for the year as Galway completed the first part of a famous double and I expect such great excitement once more this year.

“With the introduction of Trial Playing Rules in this year’s competition it is a great opportunity for us to review several areas of our games as we continue to strive to refine our game and engage with players and other key stakeholders to ensure that it continues to grow and prosper.

“This is the fourth year of Littlewoods Ireland’s sponsorship of the Leagues and we are delighted to work with such an enthusiastic and innovative partner to continue promote our game to new audiences.”

Final quarter Cork scoring blitz wrestles Munster Minor crown from Tipp!  Cork 1-15 Tipperary 1-11

Tipperary dominated this game for 40 minutes but will rue this lost opportunity for camogie silverware. In fact, Tipperary held a 0-08 to 0-04 lead at half-time while also missing some goal and point chances during the first half. Caoimhe McCarthy and Ciara Dwan scored points for Tipperary from play with a great Grace o Toole pass setting up Rosanna o Donnell for a well taken point also. Eimear McGrath added more points from frees and a 45. 

The second half started with Cork scoring two long-range frees to bring Cork back into the game but Tipp responded with two frees and a goal from Clodagh McIntyre following a Grace o Toole solo. Cork responded within a minute when full forward Ali Smith snipping along the end line to squeeze in a Cork goal. Tipperary had a goal disallowed for Eimear Bourke after which Cork’s Fiona Keating scored six points from play from the Cork half forward line. Tipperary responded with just one point in the final quarter as Cork’s revival gathered momentum. At the final whistle, the dejected Tipperary team were four points adrift and may regret not ‘putting away’ the opposition during Tipp’s period of dominance.  

Tipperary: Aine Slattery – Shannon Rovers, Laura Heffernan – Annacarty, Sorcha Ryan – Cashel, Maebh Ellie Ryan – Cashel, Laura Shinners – Kilruane McDonaghs, Gemma Fox – Annacarty, Emer Heffernan – Kinockavilla, Caoimhe McCarthy – Knockavilla, Grace o Toole – Newport / Ballinahinch, Emily Morrisey – Burgess, Eimear Mcgrath – Drom, Karin Blair – Cashel, Ciara Dwan – Cashel, Rosanna o Donnell – Annacarty, Clodagh McIntyre – Lorrha.

Under 13 Development Leagues:

County Finals took place this weekend in the Under 13A, u13B and Under 13D. Well done to Congrats to St Cronan’s Roscrea who had won the Under 13C final last weekend. 

County Under 13A Final: Silvermines 0-3 Ballybacon Grange 0-1.

The scoreline does not reflect what an epic tussle this game was. Silvermines showed their intent with a dominant first half with Captain Aoife Ryan leading by example in both halves. Ballybacon fought right until the end and in fact a Silvermines goalie save and the resulting free out saw Silvermines survive a possible late win for Ballybacon. Silvermines had great performances throughout the field. 

County Under 13D Final: Newport 2-0 Annacarty 0-2.

Played in the Ragg on Sunday November 18th, Newport proved too strong for Anncarty who were Under 12 A champions in 2018.

County Under 13B Final: Rockwell 1-3 Ballina 1-0 .

This was a very close game with Rockwell starting very well scoring 1-1. Ballina bounced back with a scrambled goal just before halftime. Rockwell extended their lead in the second half and fought off several late Ballina attacks late in the game. 

Week 3 of the Wall Ball Coaching series continues this week in five venues; Cloughjordan, St Marys Clonmel, Boherlahan, Drom and Newport with around 130 players getting top class coaching. 

A big thanks you to the Tipperary Camogie Development Sub Committee; Grainne o Leary, Carmel Bradshaw, Ailis Maher, Rachel Hogan, Philly Ryan, Una Teehan, Sarah Devane and Brian Boyle for their trojan work with the Under 13 Development League and the current Under 13 Wall Ball series. We would like to welcome Derek Coffey – Brian Borus and Tommy Flynn – Rockwell to this working group. Thanks to venues Cappawhite, Roscrea, Boherlahan and Ballycahill who facilitated fixtures to get played and of course to the Ragg Camogie field which has hosted so many matches this year and always in great ‘nick’.

Drom and Toome seek Munster Camogie Glory!
Senior Final: Drom/Inch v Scariff / Ogollonoe at 2.30pm in Cappamore, Nov. 9th
Drom/Inch look forward to the Munster Senior Club Camogie Final in Cappamore next Saturday against Scariff Ogollonoe, Clare. Drom just prevailed against Cork champions Sarsfields, Glanmire in the Semi-final after a quick one-week turnaround following their historic win against 8-in-a-row chasing Burgess/Duharra. Drom were possibly a little sluggish in the semi but a two-week break and the return of Edel Nyland and Anne Eviston after injury will strengthen Drom’s panel.
Stalwart Joanne Ryan scored four points from play in the semi and captain Aoife McGrath has also starred in both County final and Munster semi. Drom will also look to County Seniors Caoimhe Bourke, Niamh Treacy and Miriam Campion for leadership in this final. Clare senior Ciara Doyle will lead the Clare side with Mairead Scanlon a scoring threat for Scariff Ogollonoe. There are three Daly sisters on the Clare side which beat current Munster champions Inagh/ Kilnamona in the Clare semifinal and Newmarket in the Clare final. Drom defence is solid with Mairead Eviston, Maria Connolly and Cristina Brennan aware that this Clare side knocked in four goals past Limerick champions, Newcastle West in their Munster semi-final.

with the experience of Quigley and Cremins being joined by the youthful
Kirwan in the full back line.
Drom also are blessed with great camogie talent. All Star nominated
Caoimhe Bourke plays in goal with Tipp Intermediate Cristine Brennan at
full back and Tipp Minor Maria Connolly in one corner. Maureen Ryan and
Tipp Senior wing back form their half back line. 2018 Tipp Minors Niamh
Long and Mary Bourke form Drom’s midfield with the long range scoring of
Dee Dunne on the wing. Tipp Seniors Miriam Campion and Niamh Treacy
started the semi in the full forward line but both spend time further out the
field with both players excellent in the air. Eimear McGrath and the
experienced Siobhan McGrath bring more score power to Drom attack.

Can Drom stop the Burgess / Duharra Camogie dominance?

New Under 12 Format is a huge success!
Brian Boru’s record ‘A’ Double with wins for their team 1 and Team 2 sides!
Tipperary Camogie ran the Under 12 Development Leagues using a novel format
based on the ‘Celtic Challenge’ idea.
Under the guidance of the Tipperary Camogie Coaching and Development
Committee, 34 clubs entered under 12 teams in the ‘Team 1’ league with 4 large
groups giving lots of games to all players. Similarly, a separate 2 group ‘team 2’
competition took place for clubs entering a second under 12 team. All teams
reached a county semi-final based on their league group placing with semi
winners reaching a Cup final and ‘semi’ losers competing in the Plate final. In all
there were 25 Under 12 finals played between Thursday August 28 th and Sunday
September 1 st in the Ragg and New Inn. A huge thanks to all who volunteered on
gates, scoreboards and stewarding. A special word of thanks to Rachel Hogan and
Grainne o Leary, coordinators of this fabulous league. The coordinators also put
together a tremendous colour program for the ‘Finals’ weekend, a credit to
Tipperary Camogie. Thanks to Ailis and Ciardha Maher for compiling the program.
Thanks to all clubs who efficiently submitted team lists and photos and Brennan
Print for their great deal. Mike Ryan and Dani Ryan organised photography for the
finals and Mike continues to do trojan work with camogie photo uploads on our
Official Tipperary Camogie Facebook site. New Inn Camogie club contributed
enormously also with their facilities, stewarding and scoreboard as Ragg had 2 full
days of finals. Thanks to Annette Carroll and John Fogarty of Rockwell who
coordinated finals in New Inn and involved their whole club in volunteering.
We had sponsors for these finals who helped enormously with the costs of new

The feedback from the clubs has been so positive with great praise from clubs
about the very professional programs, slickness of ‘Finals Days’ but most of all
about the opportunity for young players to play camogie at their own level, have
competitive matches and the rules clearly defined.
Junio B Update: Moycarkey have begun the Junior B championship with 2 wins
over . Fethard and Carrick Swan have also started brightly. Silvermines recorded a
win over Arravale Rovers. Lorrha received a walkover to stay in the hunt also.
Junior A: Holycross and Kiladangan lead the way in the first group having played
out an exciting draw on Sunday September 1 st , they both recorded wins in Round
1 with wins over Boherlahan and Ballina respectively. Boherlahan are still in the
‘race’ from a semi spot with a win against Ballina in Round 2. In the second
group, Knockavilla and Moneygall had a very close game with Knockavilla
squeezing out the win by 1-14 to 1-13 scoreline. Shannon Rovers beat Moneygall
in Round 1 but Round 2 game between Shannon Rovers and Templemore was
postponed due to a bereavement.
Intermediate Camogie: Toomevara have begun the Intermediate championship
with wins over Borrisoleigh and Kilruane. The Toome v Kilruane game was very
close with only 1 point separating the teams at the final whistle. Borrisoleigh
recovered from Round 1 defeat to beat Drom in Round 2. Thurles Sarsfields had a
comfortable win over Cahir in Round 2.

Burgess / Duharra justify Senior Club favouritism with 2 big wins!
Tipperary Senior Camogie Championship has a field of 7 Senior teams in 2019
with Group 1 consisting of reigning champions Burgess / Duharra, 2019 County
Finalists Clonoulty, Anacarty and Silvermines with Cashel, Drom and Nenagh in
Group 2.
Burgess / Duharra have starting in blistering fashion with two comprehensive
wins over Silvermines and Anacarty. Clonoulty made history last year getting to
their first senior final but began this years campaign with a defeat to a young, up-
and-coming Anacarty side. Clonoulty recovered from round 1 defeat to record a
win against Silvermines in Round 2. In Round 3, Burgess/ Duharra take on
Clonoulty with Anacarty facing Silvermines.
The second group has been more straightforward with both Drom and Cashel
recording big wins over Nenagh, both will advance to semi-final spots.
Congrats to our U14A team who won the Munster blitz today in DR Morris Park.

Tipp Intermediates fail narrowly again a semi-final stage!
All Ireland Intermediate Camogie Semi-final:
Galway 2-09 Tipperary 2-05.

Tipperary started very well with the aid of a strong wind in Cratloe and established a four-point lead thanks to two points each from Jenny Grace and Andrea Loughnane and a neat score from the threatening Clodagh McIntyre.Sabrina Larkin and Laura Shinners were excellent in the heart of the Tipp defence but Galway began establishing a foothold in proceedings and went in front, despite hitting five wides. Ava Lynskey struck for a goal and a point and Rachel Moynihan found the target from a free but it was Tipp that led at the break, 1-5 to 1-4, after corner-back Beth Ryan goaled just before the short whistle. McIntyre soloed through for a brilliant goal early in the second half but Tipp would not score again. Galway clawed themselves back into proceedings hanks to points from Moynihan but despite playing with the elements, they were making hard work of breaking down a Tipp defence in which Larkin was magnificent as a sweeper. Lynskey finally got them in front just into injury time before substitute Niamh Horan goaled within 40 seconds of her ntroduction to confirm the Tribeswomen’s qualification. Tipperary Team: Ciara Houlihan – Burgess/Duharra, Ciara Ryan – Silvermines, Laura Shinners – Kilrunae McDonagh, Beth Ryan – Knockavilla, Claire Stakelum – Holycross, Sabrina Larkin – Shannon Rovers, Emma Carey – Thurles Sarsfields, Nicola Loughnane – Thurles Sarsfields, Shauna Quirke – Toomevara, Andrea Loughnane – Thurles Sarsfields, Jenny Grace – Burgess/Duharra, Ciara McKeogh

Late Tipp goals not enough against sharp-shooting ‘Cats’!
All Ireland Senior Camogie Semi-final:
Kilkenny 2- 21 Tipperary 3-12
Kilkenny came good in the second half to return to the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship Final for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. Michelle Quilty was the star of the show with a goal and nine points but the Noresiders took some time to deal with the Tipperary challenge and it was only in the last quarter that they put significant distance between themselves and their opponents. Even at that, they conceded two late goals and exhibited enough sloppiness to displease them. It was a fantastic effort by Tipperary for a long way though and they got the perfect start, playing with an assurance and showing courage in not adopting a sweeper against the free-scoring Cats, a decision nfluenced in some part nodoubt by having the wind in their favour. They caused quite a bit of discomfort in the Kilkenny defence right throughout the opening period and registered the opening two points as they went toe-to-toe with the heavily-fancied Cats.Megan Ryan got it going with a wonderful point from distance and Eibhlís McDonald slotted neatly soon after, following a well-crafted move. Kilkenny were soon level thanks to a brace of scores from their former All-Ireland winning skipper Quilty, but Tipp made their intent plain as Ereena Fryday restored their lead. Things got even better in the eighth minute, when Orla O’Dwyer was adjudged to have been fouled and Aoife McGrath’s free from outside the 65 appeared to fly all the way to the net, much to the disappointment of Kilkenny netminder Emma Kavanagh. Any team Ann Downey is involved in is unlikely to shirk a battle however, and her charges bagged the next four scores to move in front. Miriam Walsh wasn’t among those raising the lags but she was Kilkenny’s most nfluential figure in that opening period, winning most of her tussles with Julieanne Bourke and involved as Quilty (free), Katie Power and Anne Dalton pointed.The powerful Tullaroan forward then won possession 40m out when she had no right to do so, and set off a chain of that involved Denise Gaule and Power, and ended with Quilty rounding Caoimhe Bourke before hand-passing to the net in the 21 st minute. That put two points between them but once more, Tipperary illustrated their improvement since reaching last year’s Semi-Final, McDonald, Cáit Devane (twofrees) and Niamh Treacy giving Niamh Lillis’s team the lead once more. It was Kilkenny that finished strongest though, and they had drawn a point up when Anne Dalton grabbed her sixth goal of the campaign, sumptuously scooping the sliotar over a diving Caoimhe Bourke, after the Tipperary goalie had made a stupendous full-length save from Quilty. That made it 2-9 to 1-8 at the change ofends.It was always going to be more difficult into the wind in the second half and though Devane kept the Premier in touch from placed balls, Quilty did the same at the other end.Gradually, Tipperary’s efforts began to take their toll. Once a bit more space started presenting itself, Kilkenny extended their advantage easily, with Gaule in particular making hay to clock up six points, five from play, while Power and Kellyanne Doyle also raised white flags. Orla O’Dwyer goaled for Tipperary in the 59 th minute and Karen Kennedy struck with the last puck of the ball but Kilkenny had more than enough done by then. SCORERS FOR KILKENNY: M Quilty 1-9 (7fs); D Gaule 0-6(1f); A Dalton 1-1; K Power 0-2; E Keane, A Farrell, K Doyle 0-1 each SCORERS FOR TIPPERARY: C Devane 0-6(fs); E McDonald 0-3; A McGrath (free), O O’Dwyer, K Kennedy 1-0 each; Megan Ryan, N Treacy, E Fryday 0-1 each KILKENNY: E Kavanagh, C Dormer, C Foley, G Walsh, D Tobin, C Phelan, E Keane, K

All Ireland Senior Semi-final Preview.
By Philly Ryan P.R.O

Kilkenny favourites as Tipp Seniors continue quest for All Ireland Glory! Tipperary face Kilkenny at the Gaelic Grounds,Limerick, 5.30pm on Saturday August 17 th in an exciting All Ireland Senior Camogie semi-final double bill.Tipperary had to battle hard for a win against Limerick in their Semple Stadium quarter final. Tipperary will not fear Kilkenny as many of the current Tipperary squad have had All Ireland success against the ‘Cats’ at underage level over the past years. However, Kilkenny have contested to past three All Ireland finals, winning one and narrowly losing out to Cork in two finals gaining huge experience on the way. Denis Gaule, Katie Power and Ann Dalton are among the best
camogie players in the county so a Tipperary win would be quite a shock in camogie circles.It was Tipperary’s defence which shone in the quarter final win with the mobility of Julieann Bourke, Emer Loughman and Clodagh Quirke giving Tipperary the flexibility to deal with opposition tactics and cut down the space. Karen Kennedy. Mary Ryan and AoifeMcGrath are reading the play well in the half backline with Megan Ryan and Ereena Fryday’s speed and workrate adding competitiveness to Tipp’s middle third. Orla o Dwyer is back from injury and can run powerfully at defences with All Star Cait Devane so accurate from play and frees. Niamh Treacy has been promoted to senior ranks after winning National League Division 2 Player of the League while Grace o Brien, Nicole Walsh and Miriam Campion have all scored important scores against Meath, Dublin and Limerick recently. Caoimhe Bourke in goal brought off a penalty save and a late diving save against Limerick and her quick advances from goal also help Tipperary control this area. All under 16’s are free to this game on Saturday and let’s hope for a huge Tipperary support

On Saturday in the Gaelic Grounds.

Two Tipperary squads travelled to C.I.T., Cork on Saturday August 10 th to play two Cork squads.

The Tipperary Orla McDonagh Under 14 Intercounty Blitz takes place in Tipperary venues; Dr Morris Park and the Ragg on Saturday, August 24 th with the Munster Under 14 title also up for
Tipperary Intermediates one step from Croke Park All Ireland Day!
By Philly Ryan P.R.O
Tipperary Intermediates are back in the All Ireland Intermediate Semi-final this Saturday one year after a storming Down finish saw Tipperary lose a seven-point lead and miss out on an All-Ireland Final appearance. This year, Tipperary take on Group 2 winners Galway in Cratloe, Co, Clare at 2pm Saturday August 17 th Tipperary were unbeaten up until last weekend when a late Derry goal saw the great run end with Down snatching first place. Tipperary stayed in front of Derry on score difference and will have a nice mix of youth and experience going into this semi. Ciara Houlihan Burgess Duharra has recently taken over from Nenagh’s Sarah Quigley with Captain Sabrina Larkin, a dominant figure at full back. The Ryans; Beth from Knockavilla and Ciara from Silvermines have held down the corner back berths since Tipp’s great Division 2 National League success.Kilruane’s Laura Shinners starred at centre back against Derry with Holycross’ Claire Stakelum having made a successful transition from forward to wing back. Left wing-back Emma Carey is part of a trio of Thurles Sarsfields representives with sisters Nicola Loughnane in midfield and Andrea Loughnane corner forward. With Player of the League Niamh Treacy getting promoted to seniors ranks since the Littlewoods National League, Sarah Delaney, Boherlahan has taken over at midfield, scoring three vital points during their close tie v Laois recently. Aine o Dwyer, Cashel is very strong under puck outs and plays a ‘Bonner Maher’ role in attack with world handball champion Sinead Meagher (Kiladangan) showing great ability and ball retention at full forward. Burgess’ Jenny Grace has been a vital cog at centre forward, adding to her exceptional free-taking returns this season. Another Burgess Duharra star, Ciara McKeogh has gelled in nicely in attack with Aoife Moloughney and our 2004 senior winning captain making high scoring impacts whether introduced as subs and in the starting line-out. The lightning-fast Clodagh McIntyre, Lorrha has opened several defenses since her promotion from the minor squad with Niamh Ryan, Clodagh Horgan, Aileen Sheedy all making impacts during the group stages. Eimear McGrath, Drom is another minor who crucially scored 1-1 recently v Derry and gives management another option in the full forward line. Let’s hope Tipperary can go that step further in 2019 and win this year’s semi-final. Tipperary Intermediates have the same management as our seniors with 2019 coaches Dinny Ferncombe and Eddie Costelloe joined by manager Niamh Lillis and selector Carmel Bradshaw. Paddy Quinlan has brought Strength and Conditioning expertise to the squad with medical team Physio Brian Hurley Dr. Paul Scully and video and stats team Maggie O Grady and Peter Maher completing our professional backroom team. Thanks also to Tipp minor manager Cian Treacy who has been on board throughout 2019 with his assistance to management.

Tipp Minors topple All Ireland Champs Cork!
Tipperary 3-11 Cork 0-14
With 23 minutes played in the first half Cork were in the driving seat and led by
8 points to 4 with an array of scorers from play while the Tipperary forward
line were living off scraps. However, that all changed with a blistering final 10
minutes from the home side which yielded 3 goals to stun the Cork side and
put Tipp in the lead at the interval 3-4 to 10 points. Annacarty’s goal scorer
supreme Rosanna O’Donnell netted on the 24 th minute and could have had a
second moments later when a trade mark run through the heart of the Cork
defence by Grace O’Toole finished with a pass to O’Donnell who attempted to
double on the ball first time but failed and the chance went a begging. A
minute later O’Toole again picked up the ball in her own half and solo passed
numerous Cork defenders before blasting the ball to the back of the net
making it 2-4 to 0-9. Cork responded with a point before Rosanna O’Donnell
showed all her skill to win possession get past her player and fire home her
second goal and Tipp’s third. Having enjoyed most of the possession in the
opening half Cork now found themselves trailing at the interval by 3 points, 3-4
to 0-10.
In the second half Tipperary controlled the game and outscored their
opponents 7 points to 4. Laura Shinners dominated in defence having been
selected at full-back with regular full-back and captain Sorcha Ryan out with an
injury. Up front Eimear McGrath worked hard throughout and finished with 5
points on the board, 1 from play and 4 from frees. Cashel’s Karin Blair was
excellent in the second half finishing the game with 4 top class points from
wing forward. Cork went in search of a goal throughout the second half but
found Aine Slattery in fine form between the posts and Tipperary recorded a 6
point victory 3-11 to 0-14.

Kilkenny deny Tipp Under 16A’s an opening round win.
Kilkenny 1-14 Tipperary 1-11.
At times, Tipperary played superb camogie and looked capable of winning this
away tie played in Emeralds GAA, Urlingford on Sunday July 7 th . Kilkenny
managed to keep ahead by one or two points throughout this game. Tipperary
started without their injured centre back Abbie Lenihan – Newport so Kate
Flannery started, with Caoimhe McCormack switching from midfield back to
defence. Tipp led this Round 1 All Ireland Under 16A championship group 1
game briefly when Ellen Cuneen pounced on the rebound from Laura
Leenane’s penalty to handpass to the net after 10 minutes. Points by Eva o
Dwyer, Rebecca Farrell and Laura Leenane kept Tipperary in this game but
Kilkenny went into halftime leading by three points. Grace Moloney and Emma
o Meara were using their pace well to attack the Kilkenny defence with Emma
o Sullivan tidying up some great ball in defence.
After halftime, Katlyn McEvoy scored from a point from a tight angle but
Kilkenny took control for the next ten minutes to lead by four points. A Tipp
fight-back then saw some great Rebecca Farrell frees followed by points from
Grace Moloney and Eva o Dwyer. Time ran out on the Tipp players as they
dropped in a late free to try for a late equalizing goal which was not to be.

However, Kilruane led at halftime by the minimum of margins and raced clear
early in the second half with goals by Caroline Cahalan and their captain Claire
Kennedy. Roisin Cahill’s free taking was crucial for Kilruane and combined with
tight marking by Ann Mulcahy and saves by Fiona Ryan in goals, Kilruane led

Tipp Topple Waterford in Thriller
by Geraldine Kinane
Tipperary 4-11
Waterford 2-14
In a game which had everything including 6 goals, a converted penalty, super points and anail biting finish it was Tipperary who eventually emerged victorious by 3 points in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Championship Group 2 clash. A re-scheduled fixture of
their first round tie which had to be abandoned due to a serious injury, both sides travelledto a sun soaked Nowlan Park looking for a victory to help their ambitions of reaching the knockout stages of the championship. Since their opening game Tipp had suffered a heavy defeat to Cork while Waterford had recorded a victory over Dublin. Tipp needed a win to kick-start their championship and they got off to the perfect start with a goal after 3 minutes from Ereena Fryday after she flicked the ball in the air past the Waterford keeper. By the 15 th minute they had a second goal when minor star Grace O’Toole making her senior championship debut drove through the heart of the Waterford defence only to have her shot brilliantly saved by Brianna Regan in the Waterford goal. The rebound fell to Orla O’Dwyer but her ground strike was also saved before Megan Ryan made it third time lucky as her shot fired past Regan to the delight of the Tipperary supporters. Tipp now led by 6 points (2.2 to 0.2). Waterford however were in no mood to lie down and on the 22 nd minute a great run by Annie Fitzgerald resulted in a penalty which the excellent
Beth Carton made no mistake in firing home. Both sides exchanged points but it was
Waterford who took the lead going in at the break when Annie Fitzgerald got on the end of a Trish Jackman delivery to flick the ball into the net in injury time to give Waterford a one point advantage 2-6 to 2-5. Tipp also suffered the added blow of losing Orla O’Dwyer to aninjury late in the first half.
A bright start to the second half was required for the premier and they duly obliged when another brilliant run by Grace O’Toole right from the throw in ended with a second goal for Ereena Fryday. Cait Devane followed up with a pointed free before Grace O’Toole found herself on the end of another Tipperary attack and she made no mistake blasting the ball to the back of the net to put Tipp into the driving seat. However Beth Carton led the fightback for Waterford with 6 second half points from play and placed ball as she continued her great duel with Julieanne Bourke throughout the game. The experienced Cait Devane also chippedin with some vital scores for her side and with 10 minutes remaining Tipp led by only 2points 4-7 to 2-11. With 25 minutes played it was all square 4-7 to 2-13 and a draw looked
on the cards as both teams continued to give it their all in the blistering heat. However unlike the first half Waterford weren’t able to get in front and it was Tipp who outscored them in the final minutes 4 points to 1 courtesy of scores from Megan Ryan,Cait Devane and Niamh Treacy who all showed great composure under pressure in the dying minutes of the game. Delight at the final whistle for the Tipperay girls and a win which they deserved after battling hard and with-standing everything Waterford thrown at them. For Tipperary all 6 backs were excellent as was keeper Caoimhe Bourke who was involved in a lot of play and dealt brilliantly with everything that came her way. The switch of Karen Kennedy to midfield
at half time had a big impact as she added a new dimension to the Tipperary attack. It was unfortunate that Orla O’Dwyer had to leave the fray early as she was posing a real threat inside and had a point on the board before picking up her hamstring injury. Megan Ryan showed her strength and skill up front with a goal and 2 points while Grace O’Toole made a massive contribution with her energy and pace in midfield and was involved in 2 goals and scored one. Next up for Tipperary is a trip to Clare this Saturday to take on the home side in another crucial fixture.

against 2018 All Ireland Intermediate finalists Down in a very
windy Ragg on Saturday March 2 nd . Scores were hard to come by
with both sets of backs on top. Down pulled their full forward back
in front of their centre back to limit space to the Tipperary
forwards in the first half and Tipperary took a while to adjust.
Jenny Grace was again unerring from frees and an ‘over-the-
shoulder’ point from Joanne Ryan gave Tipperary a narrow 0-4 to
0-3 lead at halftime. Tipperary were on top for the first twenty
minutes of the second half but could not extend their lead
significantly. Ppoints form play by Andrea Loughnane and Joanne
Ryan added to two more Jenny Grace points from placed balls.
Sabrina Larkin’s long clearances along with the industry of Claire
Stakelum and Shauna Quirke were keeping Tipperary in command
duriong the third quarter. Down had a 20m free to draw this game
deep into injury time but Tipperary cleared their lines and the ref’s
whistle soon followed.

Littlewoods Ireland Division 1 League, Round 2.
Tipperary 1-06 Galway 1-14
Tipperary showed the effects of a quick 6-day turnaround from their opening
clash against Cork with a below par performance against a fresher, more
energetic Galway team in the Ragg on Saturday. Despite opening the scoring
with a well-executed free from Niamh Treacy it was Galway who quickly raced
into the lead and went on to dominate proceedings to lead 8 points to 2 at the
interval. Tipp’s only score from play coming from the hard-working Megan
Ryan at midfield. For Galway Carrie Dolan was excellent from frees and play
clocking up 6 points in the opening half. She was ably assisted by Ailish O’Reilly
and Niamh Kilkenny.
In difficult conditions Tipperary’s attack failed to fire and Galway’s full-back
and captain Sarah Dervan cleared her lines time and time again. Tipperary’s
management team rang the changes at the break introducing Grace O’Brien,
Ereena Fryday and Jenny Grace. With the aid of the wind Tipperary emerged in
the second half looking to narrow Galway’s lead. But a goal by Ailish O’Reilly
after a great run by Niamh Hannify put any hope of a comeback beyond doubt.
Tipp responded soon afters with a fine individual goal by full-forward Eibhlis
McDonald but they couldn’t bridge the gap as Carrie Dolan notched up her 10 th
point of the day. While Aoife Donohue dominated proceedings in midfield. For
Tipperary Niamh Treacy can be satisfied with her performance, getting on lots
of ball throughout the hour and showing great fitness when moved to midfield
in the second half. She also scored 4 frees all from difficult angles. In defence
Emer Loughman impressed the most, winning everything that came into her
corner by fighting tenaciously for possession. Tipperary certainly felt the loss of
some key players who were all absent through injury including Karen Kennedy,
Orla O’Dwyer, Mary Ryan and Cait Devane as Galway ran out comfortable
winners on a final scoreline of 1-14 to 1-06. Next up for Tipperary is two away
fixtures to Wexford and Waterford the first in two weekends time.

Tipperary Camogie News August 6th

Tipperary Senior Camogie qualify for first All Ireland in 10 years as they squeeze past 'The Deise'.

Tipperary 1-14 Waterford 1-07.

Tipperary flew out of the blocks in Pairc Ui Chaoimh and led by 8 points to 1 point after 20 minutes starting with points from Grace o Brien and Ciardha Maher in the first 3 minutes. Laura Loughnane scored from long range followed by a Cait Devane free as Roisin Cahill was fouled. Grace o Brien then knocked down a high ball which Caoimhe Maher finished over the bar. A superb Cait Devane point was followed by a solo run and 22nd minute point for Ciardha Maher. Tipp were now in full flow and Waterford seemed nervous and out of the game. A speculative long ball from Waterford's star player Beth Carton went all the way to the net. Tipperary however stemmed the Waterford surge with important points by Grace o Brien and Orla o Dwyer before the half-time whistle.

The second half saw Sarah Fryday and Miriam Campion introduced. Tipp remained a few points clear throughout the second half and both Sarah and Miriam had chances of hand-passed goals which both went agonisingly close to green flags but were wide. Casey Hennessy also won some valuable possession around the middle of the 'Pairc'. It was not until injury time when the Tipp supporters could relax as a long range Cáit Devane free went all the way to the Waterford net. This was followed by another Cait Devane free giving Tipp a somewhat flattering seven point win after just a two point lead with 65 minutes gone. Tipp were drawn against All Ireland champions Cork in the televised Semi-final draw   and now head for Semple Stadium for their first semi-final in a decade. Great progress for Tipperary Camogie and the Senior / intermediate management who have both teams into the liberty Insurance All Ireland Semis on Saturday August 18th.

Tipp Seniors snatch late victory in Wexford with Campion goal!
Wexford 2-08 Tipperary 1-14.
Tipperary started in blistering fashion with seven points from Cait Devane, two from Orla o Dwyer and one from Karen Kennedy to move into a nine point to nil lead. Wexford gradually got back into this game scoring 1-3 to Tipperary’s one point in the final 10 minutes in the first half to cut the deficit to just four points. Sarsfields duo Karen Kennedy and Laura Loughnane formed a successful midfield pairing in that first half. Wexford scored their second goal due to an error in the Tipperary goalmouth and finally drew level with Tipp with seven minutes remaining. The momentum and the breeze was now with Wexford but a 58th minute goal by Miriam Campion sealed victory for Tipperary. This was a crucial win with big games against Dublin, Cork and Offaly to play. Tipperary have now secured two wins out of two in the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Senior Camogie Championship and will face reigning Munster and All Ireland champs Cork in a fortnight on July 7th in the Ragg Camogie Field. Well done to Cáit Devane who received the Liberty Insurance Player of the Match award.

Casey Hennessy finished with 6 points from play on her senior debut, a match for her to remember. Cáit Devane was Tipperary's scorer in chief with 12 points, including 6 from play.

Under 16B County Final.

Silvermines 4-08 Clonoulty 2-06. Silvermines emerged winners in a very tight final played in the Ragg on May 6th. They led for most of this game but Clonoulty came very close to levelling this game midway through the second half. A fine finishing flourish from 'the Mines' ensured victory as they retained the Under 16B title which they won in 2017. Emer Bourke was Clonoulty's main scorer but Silvermines goalkeeper, full back and centre back captain Katie Murphy coped well with Clonoulty's attack.  The Cuneen sisters speed and touch gave the Clonoulty defence a lot of problems but Maeve Mockler and Lorna Ryan got control of midfield in the second half. A saved penalty also proved important for the Mines.

Tipp bow out to Galway in 'epic' All Ireland semi!

Tipperary 1-01 Galway 4-9.

Reigning All Ireland Minor Camogie champions Galway eventually wore down a tremendously motivated Tipperary Minor camogie side in this scintillating All Ireland semi-final played in Banagher on Saturday, April 14th.  Tipperary played against a very strong breeze in the first half and played exceptionally well in the opening period. Points from Caoimhe Perdue and goal from Casey Hennessy after a fine run had Tipp level and 1-02 each after 10 minutes.  Tipperary adapted tactically to this game very well with Niamh Long marking Galway senior Siobhan McGrath and Laura Shinners, although wearing number 15, was playing a sweeper role effectively. Tipperary were within two points of Galway as we entered first half injury time when Galway scored an all important second goal from Mairead Dillon to put a 5-point gap between the sides. Half-time: Galway 2-05 Tipperary 1-03.

Galway increased their work-rate and tempo in the second half and point-blank saves in both halves from Tipp goalie Aoife Butler kept Tipperary's challenge alive. Saoirse Ryan's clearances gave Tipp backs some impetus also. Galway's speed and hand-passing was beginning to trouble Tipperary and a ground shot from Mairead Dillon gave Galway and Mairead her 3rd goal. Tipperary now had a big task but had wind advantage. Galway deflected a Caoimhe Perdue shot over the crossbar and Tipperary missed two free chances so our comeback did not materialise. Clodagh McIntyre used her blistering pace to score a point and Casey Hennessy scored an awkward side-line free. Galway's 4th goal sealed victory and Tipperary must now wait until July to contest the Munster Minor Championship. Well done to all the management team led by Cian Treacy who had Galway tactically 'on the ropes' for much of this contest.

Tipperary Team: Aoife Butler – Anacarty, Thea Curtin – Newport, Anna Gavin – Holycross, Margaret Quigley – Toomevara, Sarah Delaney – Boherlahan, Gemma Fox – Anacarty, Niamh Long – Drom, Caoimhe Perdue – Cashel, Aine o Dwyer – Cashel, Karin Blair – Cashel, Casey Hennessy – Boherlahan, Clodagh McIntyre – Lorrha, Emma Flanagan – Newport, Rosanna o Donnell – Anacarty, Laura Shinners – Kilruane.

Tipperary played with the wind in the first half and were level at 5 points each after 20 minutes of play. Tipp failed to capitalise on the breeze and went in at halftime though level on 6 points each. Tipperary were still close to Galway after 45 minutes but a Galway goal from All star Aoife Donohue after a long solo run put daylight between the sides. Galway added a second goal through Nora Hanniffy but Grace o Brien scored Tipperary's goal to kept the match alive. Cait Devane scored well from frees and some good points from play also from Orla o Dwyer, Sarah Fryday and Cait Devane along with 2 Caoimhe Bourke saves were features of Tipperary's game.

Tipp Seniors dominate in League win over Offaly!

Tipperary 0-16

Offaly 0-7

Tipperary recorded their first Littlewoods National League points with a stylish win over Offaly in the Ragg on Saturday January 27th. With several pitch inspections on both Thursday and Saturday, the Ragg field held up very well for this encounter but conditions were very sticky for good hurling. Tipperary started well with Cait Devane, Ereena Fryday and Orla O'Dwyer scoring from play and Nicole Walsh converting frees on the 10th, 16th and 22nd minutes to give Tipperary a seven points to two lead after twenty minutes. Offaly produced their best camogie in the end of the first half scoring four points with each of their full forward line scoring a point each, Arlene Watkins was a great score from an angle.

Tipp could have been further than three points ahead at halftime but for Eleanor Glendennen saving a Sarah Fryday shot and Nicole Walsh's penalty shot blazing narrowly wide. Nicole started the second half with a long-range point from play while Sarah Fryday fed Cait Devane for another Tipp point. Tipp took over proceedings at this stage and unlike against Wexford, Tipperary kept the momentum going for all of the second half. Although Offaly registered just one second half point, Caoimhe Bourke saved both a penalty and a 20m free in the closing stages so Tipperary were glad of their nine-point cushion late on. Eimear Murphy, Cait Devane and Miriam Campion all started this game with Andrea Loughnane (one point) Niamh Treacy and Eibhlis McDonald introduced. Management will be happy with the movement up front, the great work by Ereena Fryday and Jean Kelly midfield and the fine closing down job by all of Tipperary backs.

On Sunday February 4th, Tipperary Seniors play Galway away followed by Cork away on February 18th.

Tipperary Intermediates play Dublin at home on February 18th also.

Burgess Duharra just pipped in All Ireland Club Semi!

Burgess Duharra 0-9

Sarsfields Galway 0-10

Hard luck to Burgess Duharra who failed by the narrowest of margins in their All Ireland Senior Club semi-final v Sarsfields of Galway. This match was played in Banagher on Sunday, January 28th and Sarsfields started with two pointed frees from Niamh McGrath in the first three minutes. Burgess Duharra got right back into the game then and led by five points to two after 20 minutes.  All five of Burgess points coming from Jenny Grace frees. The Galway side however edged back level by halftime scoring three more frees.

The second half started with two points for Sarsfields but Jenny Grace answered with two more frees converted. Tara Kennedy got a late point from play to keep Burgess in touch. Laura Wood's penalty save from Jenny Grace and a Burgess Duharra second half shot off the woodwork were big moments in this match as a goal may have sealed it for the six times in a row Tipperary Champs. However, it is Sarsfields who march on to Croke Park on March 4th. Other clubs in Tipperary have a huge admiration for Burgess Duharra's super standard of camogie at club level but it wasn't to be against Sarsfields.

Munster Junior A final:

Ursuline Thurles 2-07 Ursuline Waterford 3-16

Ursuline Thurles were aiming to defend their A Junior title of 2017 and had several of last year's team in action such as Emer Bourke – Clonoulty, Emily Kavanagh and Emma Dunphy – Kilkenny, Emer Heffernan and Caoimhe McCarthy – Knockavilla,  Aoibhinn Fanning – Cashel, Emma Kennedy – Roscrea and Grainne Long and Maria Connolly of Drom. Thurles started in great style leading 2-01 to 0-1 after just 10 minutes but were aided by a strong wind. Ursuline Waterford got into the game and by halftime had reduced the lead to 2-05 to 0-7. The second half started in reverse with the Waterford side scoring two early goals and going on to win convincingly.  Emer Heffernan kept Thurles in touch with 1-07 but Olivia Hogan's side found it impossible to come from behind against the strong second half wind.

Munster Junior B Final:

Borrisokane Community College 5-06 St. Marys Nenagh 3-06

Borrisokane CC followed up their 2017 Munster C title by winning this year's Munster B crown winning a very exciting Munster final played in Dolla. A derby match between two North Tipperary schools even saw club mates from Toomevara and Nenagh on opposing sides! Borrisokane were ahead at various stages during this match leading 2-01 to 1-01 after 15 minutes with Aine Slattery getting the opening goal for BCC. Sarah Madden and Niamh Cuneen's pace for Nenagh caused Borrisokane some problems. By halftime the sides were level at 3-03 to 3-03. For Nenagh Aoibhinn Delaney had a good first half but it was Laura Leenane's two goals which put a real mark on this game. Laura Shinners also chipped in with 1-03 and Bonny Conroy had a fine second half. Lauren Ryan was many people's Player of the match with captain Ella Carey playing well in goals. For St Marys, Emily Morrissey, Jill Ann Quirke and Mary Flaherty played well.

Fine Tipp performance spoiled by late Wexford winning goal!
Littlewoods National Senior Camogie League
Division 1. Tipperary 2-12 Wexford 3-10.
Played in the Ragg, Tipperary got off to a fine wind-assisted start with a 45’ and a free, both scored by Nicole Walsh. New manager Bill Mullaney had freshened up the Tipperary Senior and Intermediate squads over the winter so there was a quiet optimism in the panel. Without the Burgess / Duharra county players who are currently preparing for their All Ireland club semi, management were dealt further blows when without Cáit Devane, Emer Loughman, Julieanne Bourke and Aoife McGrath through injury and illness. This did not affect Tipperary’s first half performance with Tipp scoring seven points from play through Orla o Dwyer, Niamh Treacy, Nicole Walsh and Andrea Loughnane. Some goals chances also went unfinished which may have proved costly. A Sarah Fryday goalput Tipp into a commanding 1-07 to 0-3 lead after 20 minutes. Linda Bolger goaled for Wexford to leave the halftime score Tipp 1-09 Wexford 1-05.
The second half saw Wexford starting with a Linda Bolger pointed free but Tipperary were back in the driving seat with a second Sarah Fryday goal. Wexford who now had the wind started to press hard. Tipp saved a penalty from Una Leacy who eventually got Wexford’s second goal later in the half. Late points from play from Andrea Loughnane, Orla o Dwyer and an injury time point from Miriam Campion seemed to have secured a Tipperary home win only for Linda Bolger to score Wexford’s third goal followinga Caoimhe Bourke double save.
Tipperary Secondary Schools update:
Presentation Thurles are Munster A champs after dramatic injury time winner!
Munster Senior A Final: Presentation, Thurles 3-05 Coachford College 0-12
At their third attempt, Presentation Thurles are crowned Munster Senior A camogie champions after narrow defeats in 2017 and 2016. Although Presentation were beaten by Coachford in an earlier round when both teams were already through, this final was billed as a 50:50 affair and it proved to be just that. At half time, Presentation led by 1-03 to five points but Coachford started the second half well and after 40 minutes were in a 0-8 to 1-3 lead. A second Pres goal kept them in touch but Coachford led by 0-12 to 2-5 early in injury time. Three goals by Casey Hennessy (Boherlahan), Saoirse o Meara (Moycarkey) and Grace o Donnell (Kilkenny) for Presentation proved crucial. Cian Treacy, Barry Ryan and will be proud that their team stayed fighting until the final whistle. It was the 6th minute of injury time when Kilkenny native Grace o Donnell slammed the sliotar to the net to nose Pres. In front amid joyous scenes in Ballyagran, County Limerick.
Munster Senior D Final:
Loreto Fermoy 3-09 Colaiste Pobail Roscrea 2-03. Loreto Fermoy were well in control and led by 2-08 to 1-03 after 45 minutes. A goal for each side saw Fermoy run out 9 point winners at fulltime. Best of luck to Roscrea in the Junior Final next week.

Could it be 3rd time lucky for Pres. Thurles in 'Camogie's Harty Cup'?

Presentation Thurles contest the Munster Senior A camogie final on Saturday January  13th in Charleville at 1,30pm v Coachford of Cork. Presentation had an emphatic win in the semi-final against Colaiste Coilm, Ballincollig while Coachford beat a fancied Doon Community School team which fielded 5 Tipperary county minors from West Tipperary. The 'Doon' semi was played in atrocious conditions where holding the hurley was a struggle.

Anna Gavin of Holycross captains the Thurles side with fellow Holycross player Julie Brennan playing in the full back line. Laois county player Molly o Connor won an All-Ireland Under 16B title last year while Aoibeann Clancy doubles up her camogie talents with being an Irish Under 16 soccer international!

Best of luck to this Tipperary School and please lend your support to Cian Treacy, Barry Ryan and their players.

Burgess Duharra retain Munster club crown and march on to January All Ireland Semi!!

Tipperary's champions Burgess Duharra have secured a second Munster Senior Camogie Club title in a row after narrowly beating Clare's Inagh Kilnamona. Burgess went into the game as slight favourites as reigning Munster champions but the Clare side had disposed of Cork champs Iniscarra in their semi. The game was played in difficult weather conditions in the well-manicured Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.

Burgess were very quick off the mark  with two first half goals from Jenny Grace and Amy Kennedy and an early point from ex Tipperary Star Eimear McDonnell. Inagh stayed in touch with some good free taking but Burgess went in at half-time with a huge ten point lead 2-08 to 0-4. They stretched this lead to 2-09 to 0-4 after the break before the 'Inagh' comeback took off. Sinead o Loughlin got an Inagh goal and Clare county players Keating and o Keeffe added points to leave the score at a nerve-wracking two point difference.

Amy Kennedy provided the most crucial score of this game when she scored in the 60th minute to secure a three point lead for Burgess Duharra. This score stemmed the tide and saw Burgess Duharra retain the title and progress to play the Galway champions in January.


Under 14 B County League Final:

St Ritas Fethard 2-02 Silvermines 0-4.

Rose o Donnell scored Fethard's first half goal kept them right in this game. What a difference in the second half when Fethard got on top and Silvermines failed to attack the Fethard goal throughout the second half. Fethard tagged on another 1-02 to their tally to add the Under 14B title to their under 16C crown.

Eabha Hogan scored a free to level the game and midway through the second half Joanne Hickey scored Fethard's second goal. Eabha Hogan tagged on a second free near the full time whistle.

Young Ballina side clinch County Title!

Junior B County Final: Ballina 1-09  Lorrha 1-05.

Ballina have won their first adult Camogie title with a deserved win against a brave Lorrha side. However, it was Lorrha, the more experienced outfit having won the 2016 and 2017 Junior B league titles, that settled into this match quickly.  Ellen Lane was covering great ground around the middle of the Camogie Field and Rebecca Foley's contribution from both frees and play was vital. Clodagh McIntyre for Lorrha threatened on several occasions to split open the Ballina defence and Elaine Hogan was playing well for Lorrha at midfield. Muire Kennedy and Celine Cleary were also going well for Lorrha during this closely contested final. Hannah Finnerty was Ballina's impact sub with a point from play. It was a goal for Ballina with just five minutes remaining that gave them the lead they would not relinquish! In the backs Sinead o Leary and Cristine Hayes did trojan work for Ballina.

Annacarty complete unbelievable underage A-Grade clean sweep!!

Minor A County Final: Annacarty 3-09 Drom 2-07

Annacarty are County Minor A champions for 2017 to add to their under 12, under 14 and under 16 A championship titles. This was a fantastic final with very high quality camogie on offer. The first half was very tight with both sides locked at three points all at half-time. Annacarty had Jean Kelly and Gemma Fox very busy and winning good ball while Mary Bourke for Drom was dominating at centre back. Cristina Brennan Drom and Rosanna o Donnell Annacarty were having a 50/50 tussle near the drom goal mouth and Grainne Long was playing well for Drom forwards. A changing point was the move of Rosanna o Donnell further out the field and Annacarty got on top. Leah Heffernan was proving dangerous inside for Annacarty also. Niamh Long at midfield for Drom tried hard in midfield but Eibhlis McDonald  soon began to score from both frees and play as the second half progressed. Well done to both teams and congratulations to Annacarty on their historic achievement.

Burgess win Minor C crown! Burgess 4-06 Holycross 3-03.

Burgess got off to a flying start in the first half with two Emily o Dwyer goals after good work by both Emily Morrissey and Katie Egan who provided the hand passes. Holycross had Anna Gavin dominating in their half back line and was well assisted by Katie Ryan around the middle and ? McGrath up front. Burgess went in at half time as 2-04 to 1-03 leaders but Holycross started the second half very well. Holycross went ahead eight minutes into the second half with their third goal to lead 3-02 to 2-04. A Caitlin o Halloran free pulled Burgess back level. Danielle Nealon struck Burgess third goal from a free. Emily Morrissey sealed the victory with Burgess' fourth goal. Fiona Kirwan at full back and Caoilfhinn Maher in goal were very solid throughout for Burgess.

Preview to Munster Senior Club Camogie Final: Burgess Duharra v Inagh Kilnamona (Clare)

Excitement is building about the upcoming Camogie Senior Club Munster Final which will take place between Tipperary Champions Burgess Duharra and Clare's Inagh Kilnamona. This match takes place in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick at 2pm, Saturday  November 11th. Burgess Duharra are the defending champions but will be very wary of a Inagh Kilnamona side which includes Clare Allstar nominee Aoife Keane and Clare Seniors Andrea o Keeffe, Claire Hehir and Amy Keating.

Burgess have the highly experienced Eimear McDonell back blasting in goals and the highly skilled Kennedy sisters Tara and Amy up front and have showed their score power against both Drom in the County final and Granagh Ballingarry in the Munster Club semi-final. Caoimhe Maher and Gemma Grace form a formidable backbone also. Inagh have beaten the Cork Champions Inniscarra in their semi final which is a huge achievement and proves their quality. Referee will be Limerick's Philip Dee so come along and shout on the Tipp girls as they aim to retain their title!

Thurles Sarsfields recover to become Junior A champs and Burgess/Duharra Seniors march on in Munster!!
Junior A County Camogie Final. Thurles Sarsfields 1-11 Toomevara 1-10.
On Saturday October 28th in the Ragg Camogie Field Thurles Sarsfields pipped a well prepared Toomevara side who got out of the blocks very quickly in the first half. Toome flew into an eight point to one point lead after twenty minutes. Toome also had a penalty saved but did score a point from the resulting 45’. However, although Toome were dominating Sarsfields came back into the game especially through a Laura Loughnane goal before halftime. Karen Kennedy at centre back is a huge addition to Sarsfields after missing last season through injury. And so, at half-time it was Toome 0-8 to Sarsfields 1-04 with the match ‘back in the melting pot’. The second half was a hugely exciting game. It was ‘tit for tat’ with Sarsfields getting in front and holding on at the end to a one point win!
Thurles Sarsfields: Siobhan Hennessy, Niamh McCormack, Catherine Skehan, Rebecca Loughman-Twomey, Aoife Butler, Karen Kennedy, Emma o Dwyer, Andrea Loughnane, Sadbh Leahy, Nicola Loughnane, Roisín Corbett (0-9, 0-8 frees, 0-1 45m), Aoife Maher, Emer Kennedy, Laura Loughnane(1-1) ,Sarah Stakelum (0-1).

Munster Senior Club Camogie Semi Final. Burgess Duharra 4-18 Granagh 1-7.
Burgess / Duharra are the reigning Munster Camogie Club champions and proved their credentials by racing into a nine points to two points lead after thirty minutes. At this point Emer McDonnell struck two goals in first half injury time to more or less put this game beyond Granagh/ Ballingarry’s reach.
Half-time: Burgess/Duharra 2-9 Granagh Ballingarry 0-2. Granagh Ballingarry did put some respectability on the scoreboard in the second half with an early goal but two more goals for Burgess on the 37th and 47th minutes showed their extra class. A final score of 4-17 to 1-7 will have Burgess Duharra brimming with confidence as they prepare for the Munster Final.
Munster Intermediate Camogie Club Semi-Final: Silvermines 1-10 Lismore (Waterford) 4-6.
Silvermines had home advantage in Dolla but were taking on Lismore, the Waterford Senior Club camogie holders in this Munster Intermediate clash. Silvermines were hit by two Lismore . first half goals by Aoife Hannon and Catriona McGlone. However, Aisling Carey kept the ‘Mines’ in touch with points from a 45 and frees adding to a Rebecca Forde point from play and at half time the Waterford side led 2-4 to 0-4.
In the second half, Silvermines closed the gap to just four points but a Sinead Bennett goal stretched their lead once more. A Brid Quinn goal and point from play and an Eimear Murphy point from play helped Silvermines cause but when Lismore’s Catriona McGlone got their fourth goal this game was out of Silvermines reach.
Preview to next week’s County Finals:
Minor A Final: Annacarty take on Drom next Sunday November 5th in the Ragg Camogie Field with a hope of an Underage A grade clean sweep having already won Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 titles. Drom will be a formidable force with lots of their players having played at top level. Niamh Long, Mary Bourke, Katie Bourke and Cristine Brennan have all played with Tipperary minors with Aine Greed, Katie Ryan and ‘frees expert’ Eimear McGrath all giving Drom a strong backbone. Annacarty have Tipp Minor captain Jean Kelly and Eilish McDonald along with younger stars Rosanna o Donnell, Gemma Fox, Rachel o Dwyer and Sara Bourke giving them a great chance of victory.
In the Junior B Final, it will be a repeat of the Spring League final but a young Ballina side had a huge victory in their semi with Lorrha beating Ballingarry somewhat less impressively. This will be a real 50/50 game.

Tipp lose narrowly in Munster Senior Camogie Championship Semi to Limerick!

Disappointment was the main emotion after Tipperary did not fully 'click' on the day against a determined Limerick team. Tipperary started well and led by 0-5 to 1-1 after 16 minutes. By half-time Limerick had secured a 1 point led of 1-5 to Tipperary's 0-7.  Tipperary will be frustrated by a few wides and one or two missed goal chances as it was Limerick's goal which got them going and they always kept ahead through the second half.  Tipperary have a month to prepare for the big All-Ireland Championship game v Cork in the Ragg on June 10th.

Final Score: Tipperary 0-14 limerick 1-14.

Big week of Club Finals ahead!!

Drom will be seeking a league double in adult club camogie when they take on Silvermines in next Saturday's Intermediate Final. Lorrha will hope to complete 2-in-a-row Junior B League titles while our under 14 finals will decide who will go as Tipperary winners to this year's All Ireland Feile competition. Annacarty and Knockavilla both have a strong chance of an impressive A Double as they face each other in Under 16 and Under 14 A County Finals!! Anna carty will be favourites in the under 16 tie whereas Knockavilla will fancy their chances in the Under 14 competition. Clonoulty and Silvermines should be a closely contested final with both teams fielding several county panellists. In the Under 14B final, Shannon Rovers may go in a favourites after a comfortable semi victory over Nenagh whereas Cahir only pipped Cashel in the final minutes by 1 point in their Semi. Great improvements in Fethard and Portroe see these 2 clubs contest the Under 16 C final. So, we can look forward to Intermediate and Junior B League finals as well as Under 16A, Under 16B, Under14B, Under16C Championship finals all take place in the Ragg in the coming week.
