Our U14 Camogie team travelled to Dublin on Saturday last to participate in the National Under 14 Competition. The girls played in Division 3 against teams from Wexford, Kildare, Kilkenny and Derry. Unfortunately, the girls won one and drew one and lost two games, there were no second chances and only the top team won out. The girls stayed overnight in Dublin and travelled to Croke Park on Sunday to the All Ireland Final where they took part in a parade at half time in the Intermediate Final. A great weekend was had by all.
The time, dedication and energy our volunteers devote are of the utmost importance in keeping Roscommon Camogie alive. Without our volunteers this weekend would not be possible. We thank David, Marie and John who gave their time generously to the U14s and all our volunteers who have given so many hours training and preparing our county teams to represent Roscommon on the Camogie field.
The first round of the minor championship was scheduled to take place on Friday evening last but only one game managed to escape the wintry weather. St Dominics hosted Atleague, it was a tight game with Athleague depending on the aid of the strong wind to help them pull away in the second half on a scoreline of 1-8 to 1-3. The next round of this championship will be Sunday October 2nd.
Saturday evening see the return of the U16 Championship, there will be two games played St. Dominics will host Oran and Tulsk will host Athleague. Padraig Pearses and Roscommon Gaels has been postponed until October 1st.
