A sporting day of highs and lows guaranteed in Baltinglass
SATURDAY promises to be a magic day for camogie in Wicklow with three county finals up for decision at Baltingass GAA grounds. Here we take a brief look at the Junior and Intermediate finals.
Kiltegan v Annacurra at 12.30pm
Kiltegan and Annacurra will get the day’s camogie off to a great start and both will be trying to rise up to Intermediate grade for 2018.
Kiltegan, with a mix of youth and experience, will be well prepared by trainers Jonathan Tallon and Stephen Coogan.
Trish Kehoe will lead from the back with Elisha Ryan and Sarah Fennelly will hope to swing the game in favour of the west Wicklow girls.
Annacurra have a wealth of experience too with Aisling, Ciara and Cara Shannon, Emma Doyle and Sarah Barnes all well able to step up to the mark for Annacurra.
Sheila Barnes and Anne Lambert will have the Annacurra girls in the right frame of mind for the final.
Bray Emmets are the up an coming team in Wicklow and they have gained huge experience from competing in Dublin leagues.
At full-back, Bronagh Murphy will lead her team and Jane Butler and Niamh McCormack will be strong around the middle of the pitch.
Avondale are a club who are regrouping following a recent decline. Joyce Heffernan, Stephanie Rattray (Captain) Katie Kennedy along with Tanya McDonald will hope to bring Avondale back to Senior ranks.
Avondale managers Jimmy O’Shaughnessy and Hubert Doyle have a wealth of experience and are sure to have the girls in top gear for the final.
