CCS girls win County Senior Camogie Blitz

Senior Camogie Success


On Wednesday 26th April, a panel of nineteen Senior Camogie girls travelled to Thurles to take part in the Tipperary Schools B Camogie Blitz. For a number of our players, this was to be their last outing wearing the CCS jersey and which proved to be a huge motivating factor.
The girls faced opponents in Ballina, Roscrea and Nenagh schools in the group stages, winning two out of their three matches. This put them through to face Ballina again in the final, the only team whom CCS had been defeated by in the group stage. The emotion of playing the final game representing their school drove the girls on and they came out on top, winning by three points after a ding dong battle. This truly was a whole squad effort with every panel member playing their part over the days games.
This victory was the icing on the cake for this magnificent group of players who have given their all to represent Cashel Community School over their six years here with us. We are so proud in particular that the sixth years on the team, Laura Connolly, Aoife Crosse, Celine Walsh, Aoife Kavanagh, Clodagh Horgan, Hannah Mc Sweeney and Orla O’Dwyer are leaving us on a winning note. It is just rewards for all their efforts and commitment over the years. Well done girls and we wish you all the best for the future.
