Killarney girls make it to All-Ireland semi-finals

The Killarney squad that reached the All-Ireland semi-final

KILLARNEY Camogie Club’s under 14 team had an amazing weekend competing in Feile na Gael, hosting the Four Roads Club from Roscommon who were the eventual winners of the competition.

In their opening match on the Friday night, they played Castleblaney, also from Monaghan, and Killarney emerged victorious with a last minute goal. Match two on Friday was against Tralee Parmells and, again, they emerged victorious.

On Saturday morning they played visiting club Four Roads who proved a little too strong for the host club but Killarney still progessed to the quarter-final stage, which was held in Ballyvourney.

On Saturday afternoon they played Clonakilty and triumphed courtesy of another late goal which was becoming something of a team speciality. It was then back to Killarney where, together with the South Kerry hurling team, they set off on a parade through town.

On Sunday in the All Ireland semi-final, Killarney met a strong Nemo Rangers side who held out for victory.

The Killarney girls were disappointed with the final result but they were competing in an All-Ireland semi-final for the very first time and acquitted themselves very well with a team full of fight and heart and no little skill,

Killarney: Aimee Coffey, Aine Devlin, Alannah Holohan, Anne Hickey, Ava Moore, Chloe McCarthy, Chloe Breen, Ciara Dineen, Ella Bartlett, Elle Coffey, Faye O’Carroll, Hannah Ryan, Holly Adair Duggan, Kathyrn Ryan, Leah Daly, Maggie Hickey, Megan Gillespie, Niamh Cantillon, Orla Cronin, Thi Que Kennedy, Yasmin O’Brien and Yen Lenniston.
