Camogie Blitz in Cuala

The U12 Camogie team played in a 4 team Dublin blitz in Cuala CLG, Sat 31 Oct. This was a great opportunity for us to play a variety of good camogie teams. First up, was Ballinteer St Johns, a skillful group of girls who pipped us by one goal despite the perseverance and energy of Pearl O’Connor and Kaleigh Broderick.         

In the second game, we managed a more comprehensive win against a tenacious Roundtowers. Bray Emmets had found a better rhythm by that point, with Áine Farrell, Mary-Anne Aherne and Sarah Lambe rolling up their sleeves. 

In the third game, defending against an unbeaten Cuala was our collective task. We were eager to prove we were the best team of the four, despite our shaky start.  Róisín Benville, Amy Butler, Saoirse Canavan made huge efforts for the cause, while a vital save by Erica Brierton facilitated a richly deserved, but narrow Bray Emmets victory. A very audible outpouring of joy from players and loyal followers rang through the Deansgrange air!  Bhain chuile dhuine an-sult is taitneamh as an gcomórtas seo.     

Foireann: Áine Farrell, Amy Butler, Aoife Canavan, Eimear Timmons, Ellen O’Doherty, Erica Brierton, Kaleigh Broderick, Madge Redmond, Mary-Anne Aherne, Olivia Kissane, Pearl O’Connor, Róisín Benville, Saoirse Canavan, Sarah Lambe. Bainisteoir -  Brian Lambe.
