First Year Camogie County Final


Our first year Camogie team played their much anticipated county final on Tuesday last the 31st of January against St Flannan’s. It was a fantastic game full of skill and endeavour with both teams giving their all. Tulla started the brighter with each of our forwards taking it in turns to belt over a few points. The girls showed their skills with a cracking goal smashed into the back of the net after a few minutes in. The first half ended with the game on a knife edge with Tulla 1-7 to 0-6.

The second half saw Flannan’s getting more into the game with their influential wing players up for every ball. Tulla were pressing hard with wide’s but it was Flannan’s who edged ahead with a goal. Both defences were completely on top and scores were at a premium. It wasn’t long before Flannan’s were beginning to make probing runs from midfield and one of these runs ended up with her finishing brilliantly to the net to send Tulla into a low but they still had a spark in them. They came from being five points down to a narrow gap of two, working together as a team. The crowd was in ecstasy on the sideline. This close match showed the fantastic shape the girls were in from the great training they had received from Ms Pyne.

At the final whistle it was 2-13 to 2-11 to St Flannan’s who overcame a valiant Tulla team. Our girls fought hard but unfortunately it wasn’t to be. While it was a fantastic team effort, the following team members deserve a special mention for their outstanding performance on the day. Aoife Tuohy(Backs), Niamh Mulqueen(Forward), Siobhan O’Connell(Goalie), Evelyn Duggan and Regan Conway(Midfield).

We look forward to seeing what these girls achieve in the years to come. Well done girls.
