7’s B All Ireland Champions 2014-2015



Congratulations to our 7’s Camogie team who competed in the All Ireland Finals in Blanchardstown, Dublin this weekend. Our girls faced stiff opposition from St Killian’s, Ballinasloe, Co Galway and St Louis Grammer School, Ballymena, Co Antrim. A number of our girls had experience of the All Ireland 7’s as they were a part of the winning ‘C’ team last year and this experience proved invaluable on the day. Having beaten the Connaught representatives a convincing, 5-7 to 1-1, our girls faced St Louis, Ballymena, who also got through to the final putting up some high scores. As expected, the final was a very tough game. To win this match we knew we would need all of our experience and the hours put into training. Before the match, we were focused on winning all the small battles and keeping St Louis on the back foot. Laura McGrath found the net after 3 minutes with a spectacular self-made goal. Our captain, Regan Conway found the posts with 3 frees in the first half. Bridin Dinan and the rest of the back line Alannah Ryan, Aoife Touhy and Aoife Vaughan worked tirelessly in the first half clearing ball and stopping the Ballymena attack. The half ended 1-5 to 0-2. The second half was always going to be a challenge and we knew St Louis would come out fighting. The second half started brightly for St Joseph’s with Evelyn Duggan scoring a goal in the first minute bringing her tally 7 goals, 5 points for the competition. This goal was quickly followed by another from Regan Conway. Niamh O’Gorman. Laura McGrath and Sinead Conlon continued, as they had all day, working vigorously to create scoring opportunities. However the St Louis comeback was on and they responded with 3 goals in quick succession. The St Joseph’s defence were under serious pressure but remained resilient with Áine Nash and Niamh Mulqueen clearing the ball off the line with one minute to go. The match ended 4-9 to 4-3 and St Joseph’s had claimed the All Ireland 7s ‘B’ trophy for the first time after a hard fought campaign.

Huge congratulations to our panel who have worked hard for weeks training and preparing for this. We at St Joseph’s are very proud of this achievement.

Luke and Paddy


Congratulations to Paddy Donlon and Luke O Sullivan who came second in the Cullaun Junior Sailing regatta last Sunday on Cullaun Lake.  There were a total of twenty boats out and there were 4 races on the day.  Paddy was on the helm for two races while Luke  crewed and then they swapped over for the last two races. Although they were sailing for the Junior Regatta their scores actually placed them ahead of some of the adults so well done to the two of them
