Offaly Camogie Notes (August 13)
U16 bow out of All-Ireland Championship
Having cruised through the group stages of the U16 B All-Ireland championship, a strong second half display from Antrim knocked Offaly out of the championship last Sunday. Antrim led at half time by four points to two, these scores coming from Ellen Regan and Jane Cleary. A second half goal from Kathy Dermody looked like things might swing in Offaly's favour, however, Antrim continued to dominate and book their final spot against Derry.
Offaly: Scorers 2nd half: Ellen Regan (0-4) Kathy Dermody (1-0), Jane Cleary 0-1.
Premier Junior semi-final
Best of luck to the Premier Junior Offaly camogie team facing Dublin on Saturday in Coralstown-Kinnegad at 4pm. Dublin were defeated by Westmeath in Croke Park last year but have beaten Roscommon and Armagh this year with ease.
