The 2022 Leinster Senior Club Final will be a unique pairing after Sunday’s semi-final
fixtures. After coming through their respective battles, Kilmacud Crokes and Tinahely will battle it
out to become Leinster Senior club champions, both for the very first time. In the first of the day’s
semi-finals, Tinahely came from seven points behind to seal victory. Tinahely trailed by 2-06 to 0-
05 at the half time break with Ruth Sargent and Angela McGuigan finding the net for Eadestown in
a thrilling opening half.
The introduction of supersub and Irish Rugby International, Lucy Mulhall, proved fruitful as she
converted five points in the second half. The sinbinning of Grace Clifford, and subsequent penalty
converted by Jackie Kinch, was a certain turning point as Tinahely took full advantage of the extra
player to assume a lead they did not relinquish. Laura Hogan, who finished with 1-04, added a
second goal for the Wicklow champions, putting the result beyond doubt.
