U16 Camogie Team Gallant in Defeat: It wasn’t to be for our U16 camogie team in their effort to win the club’s first ever “A” championship title at this level last Wednesday at Ballinakill. This was a match that could have gone either way, and was super competitive all the way through, with our girls just pipped on a score-line of 2-07:1-06.

After a slow start, the team played a storming second half, just coming up short at the end. Onwards and upwards!
