Cork hold off Westmeath to retain title
Cork managed to reverse their group defeat to Westmeath to win the National League Division Two title for the second year in a row, 0-8 to 1-4.
It went down to the wire, however, as Pamela Greville’s 24th-minute goal from a 20m free gave the Lakesiders real hope having fallen five points behind.
The Raharney sharpshooter followed up with a free to reduce the gap to the minimum but Westmeath could not find the equaliser, as Cork defended magnificently in the last eight minutes.
The defeat is a bitter disappointment for Westmeath, particularly for Sheila McGrath, Hannah Core and Megan Dowdall, who also lost out in the All-Ireland Minor B final on Saturday.
