REVIEW: Big results for Clonoulty Rossmore and Burgess Duharra as last eight takes shape

FBD Insurance Senior Camogie Club Championship

Burgess Duharra 1-12

Silvermines 0-10

The meeting of Burgess Duharra and Silvermiens was a hard fought game where every ball and score had to be earned.
For Burgess Duharra Fiona Kirwan was solid at full back and had a great game. Duharra’s county players all performed well, Ciara Holohan had a clean sheet in goals while Caoimhe Maher and Jenny Grace worked very hard in the middle of the field.

Up front Ciara McKeogh and Ciardha Maher kept rotating between the full forward and centre forward position keeping the Silvermines backs on their toes. Iris Grace who was part of the U16 A Tipp team that reached the All Ireland final this year has settled well into her wing back position and had a strong performance.

Silvermines never gave up and produced a very good performance making Duharra really work for the win. At half time Burgess led 0-9 to 0-6.

A second half goal from Ciara McKeogh along with the accurate free taking of Jenny Grace helped to ensure victory for Burgess Duharra who will now face Eire Og Annacarty in the county quarter final.

After a tough and physical battle of camogie Drom-Inch emerged victorious on a final scoreline of 2-12 to 1-7. The first half was very close with Drom holding a single point advantage seven points to 1-3.

Annacarty’s goal came from Jean Kelly. Eimear McGrath and Eva O’Dwyer exchanged points from frees throughout the hour while Eimear along with substitute Michelle Woodlock also bagged a second half goal.

Nenagh Eire Og 2-4

Clonoulty Rossmore 6-23

Nenagh Éire Óg had a very tough night against a very formidable Clonoulty Rossmore Senior camogie team on Saturday evening.

After a promising start which produced a first half goal from Caroline Browne, Nenagh found themselves trailing by seven points at half time 1-3 to 2-7.

Clonoulty’s goals came from Eimear Bourke and Kate Ferncombe. Clonoulty's superior firepower and top class play proved too difficult for Nenagh to handle in what was a very one sided second half.
