A Great Start to the Year for Tara Camogie Club London.

Author: Dearbhail O'Neill
Venue: Holylane, Birmingham
Date: Saturday 8th March 2013

The Tara's started the year off on a winning start by winning the Erin Go Bragh 2013 9-aside tournament for the second year in a row. Tara beat Fullen Gaels in the final and Elaine Burke Tara's captain accepted the trophy from London camogie's president Etty Kelly.

A long cold, day in Birmingham proved a good re-introduction to camogie for the year. We were delighted to welcome back Caroline Kelly and Margie O'Connor to the side along with some new recruits; Anna Nyhan and Mary Egan making their debut for the club.

Tara beat Liverpool Hope and home side Erin-Go-Bragh in the group stages to meet Croydon in the semi final. Tara and Croydon have faced each other many times on the pitch and old rivalries made for a good semi final. Following a week of rain, playing conditions were far from ideal and made for difficult and limited ground hurling. Tara came through in the end with a great display of team work, many scores incorporating at least five or more players.

They met Manchester team Fullen Gaels in the final. Bid Grennan patrolled the back line ensuring that goalie Dearbhail O'Neill didn't have cause to leave her lines too often. Tara started the first half well with Caroline Kelly working hard on every inch of the playing field and supplying balls to the forwards Elaine Brennan, Fiona Morrissey, Anna Nyhan and Angela Kenneally. They in turn were only too keen to convert these passes into scores. Angel Kenneally scored three impressive first half goals with each of the other forwards scoring impressive points from play. Fullen Gaels Sinéad Boyle, Karen O'Leary and Ciara Walsh covered most of the pitch working hard and making life difficult for Tara's midfield. At the end of the first half Tara had managed to keep Fullen Gaels tally down to one point following two saves inside the square. Tara's defense showed an unwillingness to back down; Margie O'Connor and Joni Traynor made some crucial clearances to send the ball back up the pitch and out of danger. As the second half started the light was fast fading and the playing conditions increasingly more difficult. Tara started the second half well with Angela Kenneally, Fiona Morrisey and Elaine Burke all scoring points from play. Fullen Gaels goalie Ciara Healy was impressive and upset the Tara forward line by stopping all other attempts at her goal line. Fullen Gaels came back in the last quarter and ruined Dearbhail O'Neill's clean sheet in goal by putting two goals past her in the space of 5 minutes; the first coming off a controversial 45 and the second was quick thinking from Fullen Gael's Una Haren. Tara however managed to hold onto their lead and their efforts in the first half paid off with a final score of Tara 3-6 and Fullen Gaels 2-1. Tara are delighted to have won their first piece of silverware for this year and made the long cold day in Birmingham worth the early start. Fullen Gaels did not leave empty handed, Sinéad Boyle was named player of the tournament by Rita O'Hanlon Wright and Etty Kelly London Camogie President.

Tara: D O'Neill, B Grennan, J Traynor, S Fernandes, M O'Connor, C Kelly, A Kenneally, F Morrissey, E Burke, M O'Connor, M Egan, A Nyhan, T Enright.
