TRUAGH/CLONLARA’s victorious senior camogie side made themselves a promise to replicate the success of the Clonlara hurlers.

Truagh/Clonlara were building towards this victory since 2020 according to joint captain Laura Foley who was named as the player of the match in Saturday’s final.

“We have been building towards this these last few years. We contested three semi-finals and eventually got over that hurdle. This was our third final and, thankfully, we have now got over that hurdle”, she said amidst the celebrations in Cusack Park.

She stated, “This is extra special after the hurlers’ victory last week
Extra special after the hurling win. We all went to village on Sunday evening and we stood in a group and said we were coming home to that this week”.

Foley who excelled at midfield said, “This means so much, particularly given all the injuries we have. Everybody had written us off except our own group in which there was absolute belief and heart and that got us over the line today”.

Laura always believed that they would win this one even when they trailed in the closing stages. “I felt there was no way we were going to lose”.

Referring to Áine O’Loughlin’s matching winning score at the death she said “the call came in to take the point, but with the power and the accuracy that Áine has she backed herself, it’s amazing”.

She continued, “we knew we had to be on our game to win this. Our objective was to start well”.

Awarded player of the match, Laura noted of the accolade, “it could have gone to anyone, everyone stood up and were leaders”.
