Good week for Camogie
The Naomh Olaf senior camogie team enjoyed a comprehensive win in the cup against Tallaght side St. Mark's. Some excellent team work, especially in the second half, after a lot of missed point scoring chances in the first half proved vital and enabled the girls to draw away. The next match is a must win game away to Raheny on Mar 26th.
Next week the minors take on Lucan Sarsfields at home in the minor B league. This will be a tough encounter for the Balally girls as Lucan over the years have been the top club in juvenile grade camogie in Dublin.
Meanwhile, on the inter-county circuit, Chloe Ní Cheallaigh and Róisín MacLoughlin had an away game against Clare in Shannon with the Dublin Premier Junior team and came away with their 3rd victory on the trot. This guarantees the girls a league semi-final spot. Róisín, although named at No. 4, started in the No. 7 position. Their last game will be against Kerry in early April and this game will decide who tops the group. This is a big turnaround from last year when this team struggled to win any match. It is a delight to see Naomh Olaf's first ever adult Dublin representatives contribute to the wins to date.
And in O'Toole Park our dual star Clara O'Sullivan and the Dublin minors scored an injury time goal to steal a must win game against Tipperary. This was a huge result. Dublin have one final game against Offaly which they must win and, if Cork win their last match at the same time, then an All Ireland semi-final spot will be secured.
Clara switches her attentions to football next Saturday and we wish her and the Dublin football minors the best of luck as they open their Leinster campaign against Longford.
