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.

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 1-10 Galway 2-14.

Tipperary Seniors played their 3rd Round of the Littlewoods Ireland National Senior Camogie League v Galway on Sunday February 4th in Gort GAA Grounds. 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. Julieanne Bourke, Emer Loughman and Megan Ryan who all featured during last year's championship were introduced as subs

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.

Borrisokane Community College secure Munster Schools title!

Munster Schools Camogie roundup: A huge week for several Tipperary secondary schools as three Munster Junior (Under 16½) Finals were played on January 20th.

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.

Camogie News Jan 14th 2018
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.
Munster Junior Finals fixed for January 20th - Five Tipperary Schools in finals!

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.

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!

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. Silvermines got off to a great start and dominated much of the first half scoring four points in the process but will regret not being further ahead at half time. 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.

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). Karen Bohan, Katie McCormack, Catriona Kennedy, Aine McCarthy, Amy o Gorman Cara Maher , Martina Kennedy, Aoife Gleeson, Amy Kennedy, Niamh McCarthy

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.

Camogie News May 7th

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.

Impressive Minors beat the Deise! All Ireland Minor Camogie: Round 4. March 26th.

Tipperary's Minor Camogie team beat Waterford in the Ragg in comprehensive fashion in Round 4 of the Minor All Ireland Championship. Tipp played with the breeze in the first half and went in at half time with a 2-7 to 0-3 lead. Crucial blocks by Cristina Brennan and Anna Gavin helped kept the Tipperary goal intact with Niamh Sheridan's wind-assisted puck-outs putting on the attack. During the first half Tipperary had an early goal from Caroline Browne and long range points from Mary Bourke, Sarah Delaney and a beauty from captain Jean Kelly. Caoimhe Perdue, having earlier scored a point from a tight angle,  robbed the Waterford full back on the 26 minute and sprinted clear for Tipperary's second goal. Annie Fitzgerald was keeping Waterford in touch with 3 points. The second half started well for Tipperary with Sinead Meagher scoring a free and a 45 followed by a 43rd minute well-finished goal by Caroline Browne after Caoimhe Perdue put her through.  However, Waterford with the wind scored 2 goals through Clodagh Carroll and Kaiesha Tobin keeping Tipperary on their toes. A fourth goal for Tipperary, hand-passed by Sinead Meagher to the net and a point following a solo run by Aine o Dwyer gave Tipperary an eleven point victory in the end. Kaeisha Tobin got Waterford's third goal.

Full-time Score: Tipperary 4-14 Waterford 3-6.
