Munster Camogie 7s 2016 at Kildangan Tipperary

Author: Sheila
Venue: Kindangan, Tipperary
Date: Saturday 25th June 2016

As part of our 30th Anniversary celebrations we travelled to Kildangan Tipperary to play in the Maura Hackett Munster Camogie 7s tournament

Maura Hackett, 1953-2011, can be proud of her contributions to the fortunes of camogie in Tipperary. From the day she began as a young player with Kilruane to the time she played with Portroe she proved herself to be a great defender and had the ability to play camogie at any level and it came as no surprise that she would succeed in making it to the top with her county and province.

Over the weekend we met many of her family and friends and it turns out that our own Fiona OGradys dad is a first cousin of Maura. Small world. We were impressed by the Kildangan Club and would like to thank John Foley in particular for all his help and invitation.

There was 8 teams taking part in the tournament split into 2 groups. Taras won its first 2 games against Borrisoleigh of Tipperary and Clonea of Waterford but lost the final group game against Na Piarsaigh of Cork who were very strong . But we still qualified for the Cup semi final which would be against our hosts Kildangan and the cup holders. The games were played on a junior sized pitch at 7 a side using rolling subs. Had we the full compliment of the allowed 5 subs we would of put up a better challenge but we ran out of legs towards the end of the second half and the hosts marched onto the final. The final was a great game of Camogie, end to end, tough and very competitive. Na Piarsaigh were the eventual winners but only after playing extra time. Portroe of Tipperary won the Shield.

Tara: Anna Nyhan, Lisa Creamer, Clare Kileen, Emma Dunlea, Fiona OGrady, Joni Traynor, Gen Creane, Sarah McNicholls, Orlaith Jennings, with Sheila, Alan Smyth, Tom Healy
