Galway girls tough it out to hold off the Rebels’ charge

Galway 0-13

Cork 0-11

ALL-Ireland camogie final day wouldn’t pass without Galway success as the county’s intermediates stepped up to close the deal last Sunday.

It was a fourth victory for the ‘second string’ but more importantly, it was a definite statement of the talent pool Galway possess who will now challenge the seniors for their jerseys next year.

Even though Galway can’t be promoted due TO representation at senior level already, these players must move up. Careful thought must go into any regrading requests to ensure that fringe players (both senior and intermediate) have the chance to get meaningful game time in 2023.

But back to this heroic effort. An entertaining first half saw Galway edge Cork by three points in a high scoring 30 minutes. But it was a different requirement for the second period as the defence were defiant, even if the Tribeswomen rode their luck on occasions.

Within 30 seconds of the throw-in, Galway were off the mark as Laura Loughnane (one of three starting survivors from the 2019 final loss to Westmeath), converted. And the one minute mark hadn’t been reached when Tegan Canning made it 0-2 to 0-0.
