Carnew notes September 1


Carnew Camogie Notes


It’s all finals at the moment for the underage teams. On Saturday, the U-13s played magnificently against Donard in the Championship final. Unfortunately, Donard triumphed on the day with a final scoreline of 4-04 to our 3-01. The game was a closely fought physical battle – thanks to all the girls and mentors for a great campaign.


Meanwhile, the U-16s are busy preparing for their Shield final against Bray Emmets on Wednesday night (September 3). And the U-14s are due to play Knockananna in the ‘A’ Championship final on Sunday (September 7).


The U-8s and U-10s played a blitz in Knockananna on August 23, and are due to play in Kiltegan on September 6 and Aughrim on September 20.
