First Year Camogie County Final

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.

1st Year Beat the Bleep

1st Year Beat the Bleep

DCUstory1The DCU and John Murray Show have set a challenge to find out how fit our First Year students are; and to demonstrate how fitness can easily be improved in our schoolchildren if they have an incentive. This challenge is open to all First Year Classes in all of Ireland - there will be three categories; Classes from: Boys Only Schools; Girls Only Schools; and Co-educational Schools.

The first stage of the Challenge requires all First Year Classes who want to participate to undertake a “Bleep Test” for all students. When the results have been collated a challenge will be issued on the show for all participating classes and full details of the “incentive” will be announced. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: boys only school; girls only school; and mixed school. There will be two elements to the prize: €1,000 towards their Physical Education programme - for each winning class; and a three day on-campus sports and activity camp, at DCU, including accommodation and food, for all the winning classes.

Good Luck to our 1st year’s classes 1A1 and 1A3 who are taking part in the “Get fit & Beat the Bleep” challenge.

Munster Intermediate Camogie Champions 2012

Munster Intermediate Camogie Champions 2012


On Saturday, January 21st at a wet and windy Feakle, Coláiste Muire, Ennis and St Joseph’s Tulla fought out an entertaining yet tense encounter for the right to be crowned Munster Intermediate Camogie Champions 2012.

usecam_1St Joseph’s Captain Lauren Guilfoyle won the toss and crucially chose to play with an increasingly strong wind. An early Vera Loughnane free and a point from play by the same player, helped to settle Tulla nerves and they quickly added two more points from Vera Loughnane and Lauren Guilfoyle.

With Coláiste battling against a determined Tulla defense and an equally determined gale. they struggled to impose themselves on the game and a well-executed goal by St Joseph’s full forward Kate O’Gorman gave the Tulla girls increased confidence.


Two more Vera Loughnane points increased the gap to nine points and the failure of Coláiste to capitalise on their chance left them with a huge taste for the second half. A late point by wing back Lorna Power only served to lift the St Joseph’s girls who went in at half time 1-7 to 0-0.

The Ennis girls came out in the 2nd half determined to cut the deficit and immediately laid siege to the Tulla goal. However, once again the St Joseph’s defence stood firm. After ten minutes, despite having most of the ball, all Coláiste had to show for their efforts was a solitary point from their impressive No. 9, Jane Flanagan.

usecam_3Against the run of play, Tulla in a rare foray into the Coláiste half plundered a second goal. This Kate O’Gorman effort proved to be decisive as it was to be St Joseph’s only score in the 2nd half. Coláiste battled away in pursuit of a goal that might have changed the game but unfortunately for them a Kate McCarthy goal, followed quickly by a “45” from Jane Flanagan, came too late to rescue the game.

usecam_4To jubilant scenes at the final whistle, St Joseph’s, Tulla celebrated their hard fought 2-7 to 1-2 victory. In a day where the elements dictated, St Josephs owed much to their brilliant half-back line to McInerney, Power and Fleming who along with the full backs Minogue and Kennedy made the Coláiste battle for every score. Mary- Kate Moloney and Lauren Guilfoyle also stood out while most of Tulla’s scores came from the tireless Vera Loughnane and Kate O’Gorman.

St Joseph’s would like to acknowledge the help and hospitality that was received in Feakle both on the field and with the much appreciated refreshments in the community hall after the game. Thanks also the parents of the players who helped out on the day.
