Senior 2 are in Championship final this Sunday in Abbottstown at 1.30pm. The team mentors Niall Joy , Tom McUileogoid and Elaine Dolan, have nourished along team that were unlucky in the League to finish runners up. With Fiona Connolly captain of the team, they rallied to have brilliant Championship run after initial loss to Naomh Olafs in the Round Robin. Naomh Olafs are once again the opposition this Sunday in Abbottstown at 1.30pm and they will provide formidable opposition.
Niall and Tom have allowed the players to flourish under their watchful eye and the players have developed their skills and craft of playing Camogie during the season. Both Tom and Niall have brought many of these players through from underage and that with the experienced players, this team have showed true grit and determination in winning the semi – final out in Skerries by point.
Going into the Final.
