Liatroim Fontenoy’s Cup Champions

25th Oct 2018

A massive congratulations to our Junior Camogie team who were crowned Ulster Champions on Tuesday in Cookstown. The girls were up against New Comers St Conor’s in Derry which is an amalgamation school of St Paul’s Kilrea and St Mary’s Clady. The girls had to battle extremely hard against a strong wind in the first half. Superb performances from Captain Maeve in goals and all six defender's kept the Keady girls in the game. Aideen was first class in the first half in particular and again had a very strong second half. Aine played a very important role in Mid field and battled tirelessly, hooking, blocking and dispossessing balls with determination and this partnership with Anita meant there was still plenty of ball going into the forward line even against the strong wind.

At Half time the girls were 0-3 to 0-7 down and they knew there was a great deal to be done in the second half to perform the way the girls know they can. In the second half the team really took full advantage of the wind with a goal and  two points from Corrina and one point from Kate the second half got off to a great start. The backs continued to work consistently well with Eimear coming onto replace Grace. There were also additions to the forward line with Orlaith and Aine coming on and with Aine scoring a great point as soon as she arrived on the pitch.  The girls worked  tirelessly until the final whistle with futher scores from Vice captain Niamh, Katie and Corrina. The girls will now get their heads down and carry on with their preparations for the All Ireland campaign which will be happening after Chirstmas. There is a strong panel of girls who are fully committed, determined with great ability so the future is bright for the Junior Camogie panel of St Patrick’s Keady.
