Camogie Final

(Oldest Posts First)

Tough luck to the Galway girls. It was a hard-fought game with both defences on top. Kilkenny were the better team on the day.

Kilkenny were the more physical team yes, and after 5 in a row appearances maybe they just about got win. But they got some help from some dubious refereeing decisions. They kept Galway waiting after break, on a freezing cold night in Croke park, did Galway management not see that coming. Ref disallows a Galway goal for a so called throw ball. He also gave a very soft penalty. A draw would have been a fair result. Anyway Galway have a good young team, lets hope they learn from this for the future.

He didn't disallow a goal, but it did stop a very good chance of a goal. The replay on that suggested it was a legal handpass. Ironically, I thought the Kilkenny handpass just before the penalty was a much more blatant throw. It was a fairly soft penalty too.

2021 is just around the corner and we can look forward to this great team bouncing back. Gaillimh Abu

Galway will bounce back from this.

yes they will bounce back. But they need to look at strenght and conditioning and general fitness. They were "pushed" off the ball in both the Men's hurling (Limerick) and Ladies camogie. Also last week the ladies footballers did not plan for the semi final either. Cork came up the evening before. The Galway GAA needs to become a bit more ruthless to start winning again. Ar aghaidh.

Our hurlers put up a better physical performance against Limerick than any other team this year. It was more a case of miles on the clock for a lot of our lads. We just didn't have the legs, which isn't surprising given that a good chunk of our team have been on the road a lot longer. That Limerick team has a better age profile than us and will be hard to dislodge over the next few years. It's imperative that we give as much game time as possible to younger options like Linnane, K Cooney, Ja Mannion etc in next year's league.
The camogie team did look a bit light in the tackle yesterday evening. We got turned over a good few times trying to work the ball out.
