Well done to our Junior Camogie team on an outstanding performance in the Munster Final.
Ard Scoil Junior Camogie Team reach the Munster Final!

On Tuesday, January 29th, Ard Scoil Na nDeise’s Junior Camogie team made the long journey to Kilfinane in County Limerick to play Scoil Pól in the Munster Final. The girls were very nervous about the final and were hoping that everything would go to plan . Along with the team bus, Ard Scoil also had a supporters’ bus to cheer them on in the final.

The girls finally arrived at the venue at around 11 a.m. and headed into the dressing room to tog out and warm up . The teachers called out the team and told the girls to head out onto the pitch for a warm up and few drills .

The match started with mid-field partners Anna Hickey and Mary-Kate Prendergast fighting for the ball but unfortunately Scoil Pól girls managed to get the ball and score the opening point. The girls kept pushing and fighting forcontrol but Scoil Pól girls managed to get to the ball first. With Scoil Pól a few points ahead the weather decided to change dramatically for the players. A hail and snow storm decided to come down on the girls making the game even more challenging. Wing backs Míde Delaney and Niamh Fennell tried to keep pushing their opponents down towards the half forward line until the half time whistle blew.

With the girls down by a few points things got tense inside the dressing room. Our Coaches Ms. McCarthy, Ms. Prendergast and Ms. Kiely gave the girls a pep talk and told them to keep pushing as the match was far from over yet . With the inspirational talks the girls ran out onto the pitch to give it another go in the second half.

The girls pushed and battled for each ball which helped them get a few points and a goal to keep them in the game. Unfortunately the whistle blew and Ard Scoil girls were defeated. Everyone was disappointed with the final result but they knew how hard they had fought for every ball especially in the second half! Well done to our girls and we’ll be back again next year!! Ard Scoil abú!
