Best of luck to Cashel in Munster Camogie Final

Tipperary Camogie notes  

This Saturday October 31st Cashel will hope to claim this year’s Munster final when they take on St. Catherine’s of Cork. This game is fixed for Mallow, with a throw in at 2.45pm. Cashel`s progress to this stage has been well documented, & their form has improved so much from earlier in the year. Meanwhile, their opposition won their first ever Cork title 2 weeks ago disposing of Milford in the final. Cork champions of 2008, Douglas were beaten at semi final stage. With little time to celebrate their first ever title, St. Catherine’s were back out last weekend in the semi final & enjoyed a three point winning margin over Clare champions Kilmaley, setting up a Tipp & Cork Munster final.

Cashel have a lot of experience at this level, with many household names in their ranks. St. Catherine’s meanwhile are competing in their first ever final at this stage. Their best known player is Orla Cotter, who has been an impressive player for the Cork senior side over the last few years. The Cashel management team will be well aware of the immense challenge facing them, as any team that comes out of Cork will require full respect, & as Cashel will probably carry the favourite tag into this game, the Tipperary side will need to be fully focused on the task ahead. One thing is certain, based on previous performances in the last
4 weeks, this Cashel side, when playing with the skill & ability they have, can be a forceful challenge as they embark to emulate their success of 2007. Let’s hope the girls from Cashel can continue to build on their success & that the full support of all associated with Tipperary will get them over the finish line.

Incidentally, last year’s All Ireland club champions, O Donovan Rossa lost their title last weekend when Lougheil Shamrocks beat them in the Antrim County final.
