After a wait of three months the U14 camogie team got to play their U14A Championship Cup Final against Truagh. Both teams had been locking horns throughout the year but it was Clooney Quin who took home the title of U14A County Champions for 2019 in Fr Mc Namara Park on Saturday afternoon. The game was close enough at stages in but Clooney Quin really pulled away in the end and showed their prowess. It has been twenty five years since Clooney Quin last won this title and ironically one of the 2019 winners coach, Deirdre Murphy, was a member of that team twenty five years ago. The title cup was presented to the very deserving Clooney Quin captain Claire Murphy on Saturday afternoon. Clooney Quin are the current holders of the 2019 U14A camogie and U14A hurling county titles.
First half scores came from Orna Moynihan (0-2), Ellen Collins (0-2), Emma Quinn and Saoirse Keogh and a goal from Clodagh Quinn.
The restart saw a fine goal from Ellen Collins, points from Emma Quinn, Ellen Collins and Saoirse Keogh. Substitutes Faye McDonald (0-1) and Shauna Daffy (1-0) also registered scores with a final score from centre forward Orna Moynihan.
This final was not without incident, and with 3 minutes to go a Clooney/Quin player took a knock to the head, the match was halted until a medical assessment and treatment could be administered. An ambulance was duly called as a precaution and just after the final whistle the player was removed from the grounds and taken to Limerick Regional for further review. Thankfully she is now recovering well at home.
Clooney/Quin Team: Ella Moloney, Eabha Brennan, Lucy O’Donnell, Sarah Manley, Claire Murphy (c), Amy Senton, Hannah Clune, Ellie Sherry, Saoirse Keogh (0-2f), Clodagh Quinn (1-0), Orna Moynihan (0-3), Emma Quinn (0-2), Shauna O’Halloran (1-0), Ellen Collins (1-3), Eimear McGee. Subs: Shauna Daffy (1-0) for Eimear McGee, Faye McDonald (0-1) for Shauna O’Halloran, Claire Halpin for Eabha Brennan.
