Camogie News

Ruan U14C camogie players secured victory on Wednesday evening last when they overcame Wolfe Tones on a scoreline of 8-5 to 2-3.   Spectators on the evening were served up a skilful, fast game of camogie.  The girls had beaten Wolfe Tones by a smaller margin in the group stages and again were made to fight hard for their victory.   This particular team have been contesting finals over the years with no luck so it was a fitting end to their championship campaign which saw them unbeaten in all their games.   Much credit is due to their trainers, John O'Connor and George Power who have worked with them through the years.
