The premier event of the Roscommon Camogie Club scene takes place this Saturday, in Rockfield when Athleague and Four Roads renew rivalries in the County Senior Final.
The big game throws in at 4pm and will be preceded by the Roscommon Camogie Under 16 A Final at 2pm.
In the Senior decider Athleague, the defending champions, will look to the likes of Rachel Fitzmaurice, Nora Brennan, Kellie Hopkins, Annette McGeeney and Niamh Farrell to steer them to victory. They will also be hoping that Elaine Daly recovers from her recent injury concerns. Athleague went through the group stages of the competition undefeated and indeed recorded a four point victory over Four Roads in the first round.
Congratulation to Kellie Hopkins and Annette McGeeney, both Athleague, who were nominated for soaring star awards in the Premier Junior category. They will find out if they won an award at an event in Citywest on November 5th.
Meanwhile, Four Roads will be seeking revenge over the side which stopped their bid for eight titles in a row last year. They will be hoping their mix of youth and experience will be enough to bring the title back to Four Roads. Marie Glennon, Donna Kelly, Patricia Lennon, Niamh Coyle, Sarah Kelly and Lizzie Glennon will all have key roles to play on the day. Overall, it should be a cracking game of Camogie and their won’t be much between the sides at the final whistle.
Under 16 A Final
The curtain raiser to the Senior Final will be the Under 16 A Final between Padraig Peares and Roscommon Gaels at 2pm. Very little separated these two sides earlier in the round robin series. Another close game should be in prospect for those that make their way to Rockfield early on Saturday.
Four Roads took the U16 B final took place last Tuesday week in Ballyforan, defeating St Dominics by 1-11 to 1-05. Following a good game of camogie, Four Roads were fully deserving of their victory as they showed greater ability to both create and take their scores.
