Under 14 Camogie girls reach County League Final

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.
Final Score: Na Piarsaigh 2-2 Ballybrown 1-1
Team: Ciara Grant, Jill McNamara, Maeve Brown, Laura McNamara, Niamh Skehan, Sarah Murray, Hannah Kehoe, Grace Palmer, Aine O Tiarnaigh, Lizana Boylan, Eva Long(1-1), Rebecca Gilvarry, Orna O Neill, Sarah Stanley(1-0)Aishling Fahey(0-1).

Under 14 Camogie lift Cup

Congratulations to the under 14 camogie girls who won the Under 14C League Final with a close fought victory over Cappamore Treaty Gaels in Monaleen GAA Grounds on Tuesday evening.

This was an excellent game with no quarter asked or given. It was Cappamore Treaty Gaels who had the better of the first half with a fine display of free taking.
We had some excellent free taking of our own courtesy of captain Enya Harrington who worked her socks off.She was ably assisted throughout the team with Eabha Benson, Aine Tierney, Grace Palmer, Sarah Murray and Laura Aherne most prominent.
We trailed at the break by 4 points to 2.
The second half we improved no end and began to dominate proceedings.However we only had added a solitary point to our tally entering the closing minutes courtesy of Moya Henn.
We finally unlocked the Cappamore Treaty Gaels rearguard following several attempts and it was Katie Keane who delivered the winning score.
This put us in the lead for the first time but the drama continued and it was goalkeeper Ciara Grant who pulled off a vital save to maintain our lead.
An overall brilliant performance from the girls and well done to all concerned.
