MINOR CAMOIGE 2020——— we remained in ROINN A and we had expectations for the class of Minor 2020. The challenge to be competitive was made more difficult for all due to COVID 19. However, we had a bunch of girls who had shown great character over the past few years (U16 Roinn A Champions 2018) so we had expectations of ourselves. One of keys to success was staying injury free so losing Kate McCluskey was a cruel blow to this group. This injury on top of others leading up to the Semi Final v Dicksboro obviously became too much on the day and we failed to meet our expectations. That was a pity but this group have a huge amount to look forward to as they develop their camogie careers. Read more

Well done to our U12’s who had a very hard fought win over John Locke’s on Monday 8th July at home in the League. It was a very close game with neither team winning by much at any stage. The work rate and determination that the girls showed especially in the last 10 minutes was fantastic to see.
All players dug deep to come out with the win on a scoreline of 6-3 to 5-1. Thank you to all who came to support the girls, our next game is on 22nd July. Details to follow!

Our Minior girls travelled to Gowran on Tuesday 9th April off the back of a great win over Piltown the previous week. The girls put in a great first half against a very strong and up to the age Gowran side. The scoreline at half time was Gowran 1-9 St Brigid’s 0-3. Gowran came out like a force to be reckoned with in the second half. Our young girls put in great determination and teamwork but were broke down by this Gowran side at every chance. The final score does not reflect the effort put in by this young St. Brigid’s side. Final score Gowran 5-13 St Brigid’s 1-8.
Our U14 girls started their league campaign on Monday 8th April v Gowran in Tom Ryall Park. Gowran started the better side but that didn’t stop St. Brigid’s. When they got a hold of the ball, off they took with great determination and great skill they put a brilliant goal in the back of the net. Gowran ran at the St. Brigid’s girls throughout the first half but the girls put over a few more points and were winning by 2 points at half time. There was no stopping the St Brigid’s girlS in the second half, a great team performance was displayed and all subs coming from the line showing great impact. A brilliant result for our first match ending on a scoreline of St. Brigid’s 4-10 Gowran 3-6.
The medal presentation to our victorious Under 14 and Under 16 Camogie teams will now take place on Friday January 18th at 7pm in Ballycallan Hall.
