Camogie Notes

The Louth League Final took place last Sunday week in Philipstown where our girls took on Mattock Rangers of Collon. After Monaghan Seniors & Minors winning earlier in Clones the girls were well and truly focused on continuing the winning trend, however it was Collon who got off to the better start with a couple of  fine points from play. Inniskeen finally settled into the game after a converting a number of frees. However it was Collon who went into the break with their tails up after netting a goal to leave the half time score 1.03 to 0.04. After a stern talking to from the management it was Inniskeen who came out in the second half firing on all cylinders. Within a minute of the restart we had the ball in the back of the Collon net. The Collon girls didn't lie down and caused trouble with their surging runs through the middle and long clearances. However it was Inniskeen's day as 3 more goals and 2 points followed to leave the full time score 4.06 to 1.07. Captain Linda Callan proudly accepted the cup thanking all the girls and management for their tremendous effort throughout the year. Celebrations went long into the night with everyone jiving and dancing into the wee small hours! Inniskeen Camogie Abu!

Parents & players are all welcome to attend even if you were unable to attend any of the previous sessions. Check out our facebook page to see photos of the final and the coaching workshop.
