All roads led to Clarina on Sunday morning for the much anticipated County Intermediate camogie final between Na Piarsaigh and Crecora.
Having met already this year in a very close game, it was inevitable that this game would follow similiar lines.

Well done to the Under 14 camogie team who qualified for the County Under 14B Final following an excellent win over Ballybrown in Pairc Dromguil on Saturday.
Playing with the wind in the first half the girls played very well and got some good scores.
Goals from Eva Long and Sarah Stanley helped give us a half time lead of 2-2 to 1-0.
The second half saw a great battling performance from the girls, hooking, blocking and working very hard for each other. This hard work payed off with the defence refusing to concede the all important scores that Ballybrown sought out.
Ciara Grant our netminder was busy in the last few minutes but coped admirably with the threat whilst in front of her Maeve Brown, Sarah Murray and Niamh Skehan defended stoutly.
Out the field Aine O Tiarnaigh showed her prowess with an array of skills and up front Sarah Stanley, Aishling Fahey, Eva Long and Grace Palmer did very well.
Overall a very good team performance as we look forward to the final against Blackrock/Effin.
