All-Ire­land U14 Blitz

THE Kerry U-14 Camogie team claimed All-Ire­land hon­ours last Satur­day when they won the All-Ire­land Blitz Fi­nals in Dublin.

Based at the Craobh Chiarain club in north Dublin Kerry beat Down in their first game, be­fore record­ing wins over Wick­low and then Ar­magh. Kil­dare were next and although the Li­ly­whites looked the stronger team, Kerry’s skill level was bet­ter and they ran out easy win­ners.

Kerry got a bye to the Di­vi­sion 4 fi­nal where they faced Roscom­mon who beat Mayo in the semi-fi­nal. Roscom­mon got off to a ter­rific start and their full for­ward had two goals inside the first four min­utes. Kerry made a few changes and they set­tled down to play some great camogie with skill and de­ter­mi­na­tion. They got two goals through star for­ward, Amy O’Sul­li­van, one a great in­di­vid­ual ef­fort, but two more Roscom­mon goals left the half time score Roscom­mon 4-0 Kerry 2-1.

The sec­ond half was a tight af­fair with scores hard to come by. With five min­utes left Kerry were awarded a 21-me­tre free, which Amy O’Sul­li­van goaled from to make it a two-point game.

Mo­ments later O’Sul­li­van gath­ered Ellen O’Donoghue’s long de­liv­ery and stuck the ball in the net be­fore tap­ping over a free to seal the vic­tory.

Caitlin Guerin and Chloe Casey ac­cepted the cup on be­half of the panel, as Amy O’Sul­li­van won her fourth All-Ire­land ti­tle in one year

Many thanks to the Man­age­ment team of John Shee­han, Joe Walsh, Diane Jef­fers, Gina O’Donoghue and Richard McCluskey.
