Senior Camogie Championship Round 3
Na Piarsaigh 0-5, Newcastle West 3-14

Our home fixture had to be moved to St. Patrick’s GAA club following the weekend flooding of our fields. Up against a very strong Newcastle West side with an array of county stars on duty, we struggled and at half time trailed 1-9 to 0-1 a pointed free from Enya Harrington being our solitary score. Things did not improve much in second half with Enya adding 3 further placed balls and Rachel Considine chipping in with a point from play.
Team: Laura O’Neill, Keevah Palmer, Niamh Tuite, Róisín McNamara, Jessica Ward, Sinéad McNamara, Katie Campbell, Jane Wilson, Aideen McNamara, Enya Harrington (0-4, frees), Tara Hurley, Emma O’Rahilly, Katie Keane, Rachel Considine (0-1) Subs used: Rebecca Slater, Ciara Hogan

U 16 Camogie Championship Round 1
Monaleen 3-15, Na Piarsaigh 1-8

Our U16 team recently promoted to the top division after winning Div 2 league took on the might of Monaleen in round one of the championship last Thursday. Although defeated 3-15 to 1-8, there was lots of positives to be taken from this performance as the girls never threw in the towel and were attacking until the final whistle. Sara O’Keefe opened our account and two points from Aine O’Tiarnaigh and Sara Stanley as well as a well taken goal from Jayne Meaney we trailed at the break by 6 points. Our scores in the second half included two long range placed balls from Sarah Murray who had a magnificent game assisted by mid field pairing of Liz Anna Boylan & Aine O’Tiarnaigh. It was a big step up to Div 1 and elevated further by taking on favourites in the opening game but the girls will have learned a huge amount from this and hopefully the challenges in the next rounds are easier.
Team: Ciaran Grant, Hannah Kehoe, Laura Ahern, Orna O’Neill, Rebecca Gilvarry, Sarah Murray (0-2 45s), Orla Hickey, Áine Ó’Tiarnaigh (0-3 frees), Liz Anna Boylan, Niamh Skehan, Eva Long, Siobhán Downes, Sarah Stanley (0-2), Jayne Meaney (1-0), Sarah O’Keeffe (0-1) Subs used Ashling Fahy, Anna Sexton, Niamh Dineen, Robyn Conlon.

Senior Camogie Championship Round 2:
Castletown-Ballyagran 2-4, Na Piarsaigh 0-13.
Na Piarsaigh played the round one back fixture v Castletown-Ballyagran in damp conditions last Monday evening. We dominated the early proceeding only for accuracy to leave us down. Eventually after c 10minutes of play Enya Harrington opened proceedings with a free. Tara Hurley deflected a point before Enya had a points from open play and a free. Castletown-Ballyagran grabbed a goal against the run of play to leave the half time score 1-2 to 0-4 in favour of the hosts.
We once again dominated the early 2nd half before again being reeled in by a goal from our hosts. However the relentless work by the Wilson sisters at midfield and forwards including Rachel Considine, Enya Harrington and Katie Campbell proved too much and we ran out 0-13 to 2-4 winners.
Team: Laura O’Neill, Keevah Palmer, Sinéad McNamara, Róisín McNamara, Jessica Ward, Aideen McNamara, Rebecca Slater, Aoife Wilson (0-2), Jane Wilson, Enya Harrington (0-8, 0-7 frees), Tara Hurley (0-1), Katie Campbell (0-1), Ciara Hogan, Rachel Considine (0-1), Rachel Murray. Sub used Moya Henn


Our Senior hurlers played their final group game when they travelled to Kilmallock to play Doon.
We began the game without the services of no fewer than 5 first team players with Cathall King, Shane Dowling, Alan Dempsey, David Dempsey and Jerome Boylan missing due to injury and commitments.
However we did have able deputies with Kieran Kennedy, Pat Gleeson, Will Henn Conor Houlihan and Niall Buckley all performing very well.
In fact it was Will Henn who raised our first green flag following great work by Adrian Breen and between him and Ronan Lynch their free taking was excellent
Conor Houlihan and Pat Gleeson stood out in that half but were ably assisted by those around them.
We went into the break 4 points up but that should have been more but for a dubious penalty awarded to Doon.
We started the second half with the breeze at our backs and again stretched our lead with points from Ronan Lynch, Kevin Downes, Will Henn made it a 9 point game before Adrian Breen found the Doon net to increase the lead even further.
Further points from Ronan Lynch, Peter Casey and Tommy Grimes left the final word to Adrian Breen with our third and his second goal to seal a good victory and a place in the County semi final.
Final score Na Piarsaigh 3-24 Doon 3-11
Team: Podge Kennedy, Kieran Kennedy, Mike Casey, Niall Buckley, Mike Foley, Ronan Lynch, Tommy Grimes, Conor Houlihan, Will O Donoghue(capt), Conor Boylan, Pat Gleeson, Kevin Downes, Peter Casey, Will Henn, Adrian Breen.

The Intermediate hurlers finished off their campaign with a game versus Knockaderry in Askeaton on Sunday.
Having already qualified for a quarter final spot it was nevertheless a good game for preparation.
This was a close game throughout with Knockaderry fighting for their Intermediate status and as the game wore on that was evident.
In fact we led in the closing stages by 4 points but Knockaderry powered to the finish with 6 unanswered points to clinch the victory on a 16 points to 14 scoreline.
A disappointing finish to the campaign but with plenty of room for improvement we look forward to our quarter final against Hospital Herbertstown in a few weeks time.
Team: Evan Condon, Conor Richardson, Gearoid Synnott, Joe Gleeson, Brian Hartnett, James O Brien(capt), Evan Gilvarry, Gordon Brown, Dean McLoughlin, Adam McNamara, David Sheppard, James Daly, Dylan Cronin, Kevin Daly, Sean Long
