The Colaiste Muire junior camogie team took on Carrigaline Community School in the final of the Katie Crowley Cup on Saturday last January 8th. Unfortunately, there were a few notable absentees due to covid, but a strong team still took to the field. Colaiste Muire, playing with the wind started brightly and got a few early points on the board. This helped to settle the nerves. With our backs defending tirelessly and some great link up play from our midfielders and forwards, the goals came and Colaiste Muire stretched further ahead at half time. The second half was a closer affair as Carrigaline struck back with two goals. However, Colaiste Muire were still finding scores easier to come by and kept their composure to the final whistle to run out comfortable winners. Captain Aimee McKeown was presented with the Katie Crowley Cup to the delight of all teammates, family, and supporters present. Massive credit is due to this limited panel of girls which who range from 1st to 5th year and who have shown massive commitment over the past few months. It is the first camogie title that the school have won in recent memory. With the talent on show on Saturday, we may not have as long a wait for the next! A big thank you to Cobh GAA for the use of their facilities on Saturday and to all the supporters present.
Our team will also feature in the next edition of the Great Island Community Newsletter next week. Be sure to pick up a copy!
