Truagh/Clonlara and Scariff/Ogonnelloe will face off in the final of the 2021 Clare senior camogie championship.

A first ever final is the reward for Truagh/Clonlara who put four goals past Kilkishen/Bodyke on their way to a 4-16 1-14 win, the game played at Fr McNamara Park. The county trio of Eimear Kelly, Aine O’Loughlin and Becky Foley posed problems for Kilkishen/Bodyke.

It was a repeat of last year’s Senior B decider which Truagh won on a margin 1-15 0-14. Matters were quiet close at half-time on Saturday the score reading 2-04 1-06 in favour of Truagh/Clonlara, they upped their performance another notch in the second half to maintain their unbeaten run in this year’s championship.

Scariff/Ogonnelloe join them in the final after the 2019 champions dethroned the current holders Inagh/Kilnamona on a score of 0-11 0-08. The East Clare side were against the breeze but held a 0-05 0-02 advantage at the first water break, they hit the final score of the opening half via Mairead Scanlan to keep their noses in front at half-time.

Fiona Lafferty led Inagh/Kilnamona’s challenge on the restart but despite being on top they only added a point via Amy Keating with their opponents soon responding with white flags from Lynda Daly and Amy Barrett. Laffery and Aoibhin Ryan reduced the deficit to a single point but again it was Scanlan to get the last score before the final water break to keep Dave O’Sullivan’s charges ahead.

In an exciting final quarter, Claire Commane cut the distance to two points but a strong Scariff/Ogonnelloe defence held firm and Abby Walsh fired the final score of the afternoon to send them into the county decider for only the second time.

Scariff Ogonelloe had impressive performances from Ciara Doyle, Lynda Daly and Labhaoise O’Donnell while Fiona Laffterty and Claire Commane were impressive for Inagh Kilnamona, as well as Clare Heihir who was outstanding throughout. Scariff Ogonelloe can now look forward to the county final on Saturday week.

Sixmilebridge accounted for rivals Newmarket-on-Fergus in the semi-final of the Senior B winning 1-13 3-06 while Feakle/Killanena overcame Kilmaley in the other last four clash on a score of 3-15 2-11.

Clooney/Quin and Whitegate will meet in the final of the intermediate championship. Emma Considine scored 0-08 with Mairead Ryan contributing 1-03 as Clooney/Quin secured a 1-15 1-07 win over Clarecastle/Ballyea.

Aideen Hickey raided for two goals as Whitegate reigned supreme in the East Clare derby as they overcame Tulla 4-08 2-06.

Broadford recorded a 4-13 0-03 win over Kilkishen/Bodyke in the Junior A semi-final. The East Clare outfit also qualified for the Junior C decider after edging an extra time battle with Clarecastle/Ballyea 4-05 to 2-08, they’lll meet Cratloe in the final after they defeated Whitegate 3-08 1-03.
