Camogie Notes

posted 20 Jun 2013, 05:59 by Jonathan Tavey
Training continues every Monday evening at 7.30pm. Championship season is almost upon us and intensity at training has been upped a notch considerably with many a great tussle being fought on the pitch.

The club would appreciate if any former players who still have a skirt in their possession to please return it. 
We are in Grattan Park every Monday evening and skirts can be dropped off there or alternatively arrangements can be made to collect elsewhere. 
Finally heartiest congratulations to Julianne Finnegan and JJ Smith on their recent engagement.

Our U-14 team concluded their participation in the Louth U-14 camogie league on Friday night with a final round fixture away to St Anne’s. 
Played in the most inclement weather conditions it took the girls a little while to get into the swing of the game. Nonetheless Inniskeen dominated possession and by the middle of the first half registered their first score, a goal. 
This seemed to give the boost that was needed and from there on Inniskeen took full control of the game. On the few occasions St Anne’s threatened the Inniskeen defence, the threat was quickly snuffed out. Inniskeen went on to register a further three goals giving a final score of 4 goals to no score. The win means that we finished mid table and sounds a very positive note as this is only our second year in competitive underage matches. A big thank you to the Mams who helped with transportation and braved the terrible weather to cheer on the team.
Our U12 team played out a very competitive game against neighbours St Bride’s on Sat last. This is our first time in this competition and is proving to be a very valuable experience for our young camogs. 
The result did not go our way in the end but the game itself was end-to-end stuff and was marked by a terrific team display. There are further fixtures to play and we’re confident that a win is not far off for this energetic bunch!
