It was tense and it was tight but in the end Mayo’s camogie team emerged with a two-point victory over Tyrone in today’s Nancy Murray Cup final. They won today’s decider, played at Páirc Seán MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon, by 3-8 to 1-12.

Early on it looked as if Mayo – back competing at inter-county level in camogie this year after an absence of several years – were going to win this title decider with a bit of ease. They led by 2-6 to 0-4 at half-time and a third Mayo goal early in the second half put them eleven points clear and seemingly on course for a decisive victory. Ciara Delaney bagged two of those goals with Helen O’Malley getting the other one.

Tyrone, though, had other ideas. They rallied magnificently, cutting the deficit right back to the minimum as the game entered injury time. The O’Neill County weren’t able, however, to draw level and instead the Westerners bagged an insurance point, courtesy of sub Orna Hession, to seal victory – and the cup – by two points.

Today’s Nancy Murray Cup success caps a remarkably successful return to the inter-county scene for the Mayo camogie team. They made it to the League play-offs, losing to a strong Cavan side at the semi-final stage, and now they’ve landed All-Ireland honours in their Championship grade.

What a shot in the arm this is for camogie within the county. Not only is it a significant achievement in its own right – and deserves to be celebrated as such – but it’s also a great platform to build on for 2022 and successive years.

Congrats to everyone involved in making today’s great title win happen and here’s to a bright future for Mayo Camogie.
