TWO of the shining stars from Kerry’s historic first ever All-Ireland Junior Camogie Championship win got a rousing welcome when they paid a visit to St Brigid’s Secondary School in Killarney where another member of the all-conquering panel was there to greet them.

Michelle Costello and Niamh Leen, who played key roles in the Kingdom’s terrific 0-11 to 0-8 over a fancied Limerick side in the decider, acknowledged the commitment and dedication of fifth year student Kate Lynch to the inter-county panel and they said she played a big part in Kerry’s journey to the ultimate prize.

The three girls took time to discuss and reflect on their historic victory over Limerick at Croke Park and to showcase the cup to pupils and staff at St Brigid’s.

They also promoted the sport of camogie, encouraging more young ladies to get involved, and they informed the students that commitment and hard work pays off.

The All-Ireland victory was a truly remarkable achievement for Kerry which is a county with only one adult club.
