u14's camogie news

November 7, 2018

The Under 14 girls team have had a busy few weeks in their championship campaign.  On Sunday 11th of September, we hosted visitors Arravale Rovers in Cloneen and in a game where the wind was a huge factor in both halves, the St. Patrick’s girls came away with the win.  The following Sunday 18th of September, Moycarkey travelled to Cloneen for our 4th round championship game.  The St. Patrick’s girls showed great heart and determination in this game, when they went down by 5 point in the second half, after Moycarkey went on a three goal scoring rampage.  They held their nerve and kept taking their scores and won out on a scoreline of: 2.10 (St. Patrick’s) to 4.1 (Moycarkey).  On Friday evening past, we travelled to Ardfinnan for our 5th and final round championship game.  Ardfinnan playing with the wind, went in at halftime 6 points up on a scoreline of 2.8 to St. Patrick’s 2.2 but again the girls showed great resolve and slowly but surely the scores started to come.  The St Patrick’s girls played some great football in the last 10 minutes of the game and came away with the victory on a scoreline of 6.3 (St. Patrick’s) to 3.8 (Ardfinnan).  This now means, they are in contention for a first or second place finish in the C group and look forward to the semi finals on the weekend of the 08th of October, where we don’t know who our opponents will be as yet.


Congratulations to five of the St. Patrick’s u14 girls: Rachel Butler, Eabha Hogan, Erín O’Brien, Dearbhla Morrissey and Jessica Strappe  who recently won the u14 C League Camogie final versus Portroe, with their local camogie club St. Rita’s in Fethard.  The girls have had a very successful year with their camogie, winning the county u13 C league a little while back as well.  Let’s hope their winning exploits continue with the u14 football championship. Congratulations also to Margaret Hogan who was one of the mentors on the management team.
