Britian Camogie Championship Final Tara 3-10 v 1-04 Shires

Author: Sheila
Venue: Irish TV Grounds Ruislip
Date: Saturday 4th October

Tara Camogie won a seventh consecutive Senior Championship tie after beating newly formed amalgamated side Shire Gaels 3-10 to 1-4 at the IrishTV Grounds in Ruislip. Shire Gaels are an made up of players from Liverpool Wolfe Tones, John Mitchells, Erin go Bragh both Birmingham and Fullen Gaels of Manchester . We have played these teams throughout the year and are familiar with their players but a combo team with the best available from these clubs were not going to be a push-over, afterall they beat Croydon in the semi-final by 2 points which shows they will dig hard

Much credit must go to the likes of Noelle Devlin, Ariane Parcell, Karen OLeary, Ciara Daly, Clodagh McPeake, John Bergin and Team Manager Finnian OCallaghan who help push camogie up north.

Taras Lucy Hawkes was the first to score but Nuala O Hagan soon equalised with a point of her own. Hawkes slotting over the frees and scored another from play. Two new Tara additions this year got onto the scoresheet in Claire Ryan with a point before Orlaith Jennings goal just before half time, leaving Tara going in ahead 1-07 to 0-1 .

Tara knew that the Shires had a lot more in them and in the second half they got back into the game. Aoife Murphy scored Shires first free and this gave them a boost. Tara responded when Polly Marmion added a point of her own to the scoresheet. Karen OLeary fired a ball into the Tara square which was initially blocked down but Emma McParland reacted first and knocked the ball into the back of the net. That gave Shires a boost too but Hawkes scored 1-1 from two frees shortly to extend Taras lead. Shires did have another pop and Fiona OGrady knocked it wide for a 45, duly scored by Aoife Murphy. The Shires had ran out of time though and it never looked that they would catch the Tara lead. Denise Gilligan was introduced to the Tara team and scored 1-1 to leave scoreboard showing a 7th win for Tara at 3-10 to 1-04. Lucy Hawkes won the Player of the Game trophy for notching up a scoreline of 1-8 and her free-taking accuracy. Tara now go on to meet the Leinster camogie champions in the All Ireland Quarter finals weekend 17th October. Opposition and venue to be confirmed.

Tara: Fiona O Grady, Emer Kelly, Ann Gleeson, Niamh Murphy, Joni Traynor, Helen Murphy, Fionnuala O Boyle, Caroline Kelly, Polly Marmion, Joanne Hamilton, Lucy Hawkes, Claire Ryan, Anna Nyhan, Roisin O Grady, Orlaith Jennings. Subs Aileen Dillon, Denise Gilligan, Connie Hawkes, Lisa Creamer, Mary Fenton, Emma Hogan, Shauna Mallon, Rita Freyne, Sarah Quinn, Niamh Dolan, Dee Ryan, Kathleen O Keeffe.
