COUNTY JUNIOR CAMOGIE titles were claimed by Coláiste Muire and St Joseph’s Tulla. 

By Anne Marie McGann

The Clare Camogie College Finals took place on Wednesday 29th April in Fr. McNamara Park. The day started with the Junior A final which was keenly contest between two great school teams with plenty of stars on show. Scariff Community College and Colaiste Muire Ennis both reached the final having beaten St. Anne’s Killaloe and St. Caimins in the semi-finals.

Scariff got off to a slow start in the game with both teams capitalising from expert free taking from Sarah Wiley and Kate Hayes respectively leaving the half-time score 2-04 1-01 in favour of the Coláiste.

Scariff began to fight back in the first ten minutes of the second half and caught Coláiste on the bounce for three points. A special mention must go to Coláiste goalkeeper Maeve Wall who was steady between the post and brought off some decisive saves. An outstanding display in defence from Eabha O’Driscoll, who also claimed the Club Clare player of the match award set the foundation for Coláiste to pull away. Aimee Colleran got the final decisive goal for the Coláiste in the end with the game finishing 3-08 2-04.

The second game of the day proved to be an exciting affair with St. Flannan’s College in their second Junior final of the year having lost out to Limerick side Salesians, Pallaskenry in the Munster competition. St. Joseph’s Tulla started the game in spectacular fashion and left a deficit to Flannan’s of 1.4 to 0.3 at half time. St Flannan’s started the second half much stronger and gathered momentum through an excellent defensive display from Ruth Nihill. Tulla captain Olivia Meaney steadied the ship and a strong Camogie display from Lily Kavanagh earned her the Club Clare player of the game and Tulla the Junior B trophy for 2022/2023 on a score line of 1.9 to 1.7.

The Clare Colleges Post Primary Camogie Committee would like to sincerely thank Club Clare for the backing during this years competitions. We have the Senior B final between Rice College, Ennis and St. Anne’s Killaloe along with the Senior A final between Colaiste Muire, Ennis and Scariff Community College when schools return after the Easter Break.
