All Ireland Success for Col Iosagain!
Congratulations to the Colaiste Iosagain Senior Camogie Team and their Manager Ciaran O Murchu on their success in today's All Ireland Colleges Camogie Final.
They travelled down to Thurles to play St. Mary's of Macroom, Cork.
It was a very cold but dry and bright day for this encounter and with the wind at their backs for the first half Colaiste Iosagain got on the scoreboard within 3 minutes of the starting whistle. They battled hard and used every advantage they had in the first half and just before the whisle went for half time Anneka Kilroy popped in a beautiful goal from far out the field to bring the score at half time to 3-6 to 3 points.
The second half proved more difficult and although they never let up on their workload the Iosagain girls found it difficult to get the scores against the wind. Their defence was superb in this half as the St. Mary's girls tried time and time again to use their advantage of the wind.
The final score at 3-7 to 0-4 shows how few scores were managed in the second half but it doesnt show what a tight game it was and how tenacious the teams battled for the All Ireland Title.
Kilmacud Crokes girls played a huge part in this win but mention must be made of the Colaiste Iosagain No. 12, Jane Nic an Tuile from Ballinteer St. Johns who had an absolute blinder of a game.
Congratulations to you all.
Kilmacud Crokes had ten players from the named 25 on the panel. These included:
Mide Ni Chonchubhair, Aisling Whitely, Siofra Walshe, Anneka Kilroy, Michelle O Hurley, Lusai Ni Conchubhair (Capt) , Kalianne Farren (V Capt.), Doireann Ni Shiochur, Aisling Brady, Laura McDonnell, Ruth Keegan and Doireann Moloney.
