Heartbreak for Scariff-Ogonnelloe

Johnstownbridge, Kildare 1-10 Scariff-Ogonnelloe 1-9 There was heartbreak for Scariff-Ogonnelloe in this afternoon’s All-Ireland junior club camogie championship final at St. Brendans Park in Birr where they suffered a one point loss to the reigning champions, Johnstownbridge from Kildare. The value of experience was highlighted in this hard fought contest when the experience gained by the Kildare and Leinster champions over the past two years helped them to get over the line. Overall, they were marginally the better side but when the Clare girls review this tie, they will reflect on opportunities which were missed and which might have made the difference on the day. The teams swapped points three times in the opening quarter before Scariff-Ogonnelloe edged a point in front for the third time. Eight minutes from the half time whistle the holders and favourites struck a vital blow when Roisin O’Connell struck for their goal and this helped them to lead at the break on a scoreline …

Kilkenny’s first half goals too much for Clare

Kilkenny 5-16 Clare 1-16 Kilkenny’s dominance of the inter county hurling season looks set to continue after their convincing win over Clare in the All-Ireland intermediate final at Semple stadium this evening. Before an attendance of 1,401, their ability to get through for goals proved too much for Clare and the noresiders deservingly took the honours Five points up after ten minutes when they had 1-2 on the scoreboard despite having lost centre back Shane Taylor to injury in the very first minute, things looked good for Clare. Then, in the space of six minutes they conceded three goals after some poor defensive play and when the half time whistle sounded they found themselves seven points in arrears with the score at 4-5 to 1-7. Throughout the pitch Clare struggled to cope with Kilkenny’s physicality and this was particularly true of the Clare full back line. Being forced into an early change didn’t help Clare who lost centre back Shane …
