That’s the full list. As I’ve said, I’ve no further info on any of these results, though I would be interested in how Aghamore managed to post 8-8 in their Division 1A match against Crossmolina but ended up scoreless in their Division 1F game against Castlebar. A case of attack being the best form of defence, perhaps?
Onto the hurling, where it was confirmed today that the county’s Christy Ring Cup Round 2B match next Saturday will be away to Carlow. The Scallion Ayters lost out to Antrim by 3-20 to 2-22 in yesterday’s Round 1 tie. Who’d be the favourites to prevail in that one, I wonder? Answers on a postcard, I guess.
Finally, a small ball story to warm the cockles of your heart. My second girl – the still-waters-run-deep one – was involved in Dublin Féile Division 2 camogie action with Vinnies this weekend.
The team set off for Erin’s Isle yesterday morning with fairly grounded expectations about their prospects, thinking they’d do well to avoid three defeats in the group matches. A draw and two wins later, however, saw them top their group and they then demolished Faugh’s in yesterday afternoon’s semi-final.
This afternoon at O’Toole Park the ugly-duckling-to-swan transformation was completed in fine style. The girls led from start to finish against Ballinteer St John’s in today’s final, clinching the Division 2 Féile title by 5-2 to 0-3.
Joy, shock, pride – I’m not sure which is the dominant feeling hereabouts in the aftermath but it’s been an overload of emotion under all three headings. Winning’s great fun, especially when it comes out of the blue. Style on the girls for a fantastic achievement.
