Great Day for Galway Camogie

All-Ireland Camogie Finals

Senior: Galway 1-09; Kilkenny 0-7
Intermediate: Galway 0-12; Limerick 0-10

Galway achieved a notable double in Croke Park yesterday when they won both senior and intermediate camogie titles. I must confess that I only saw patches of both games on television. I was very impressed by the high standard of striking displayed by the girls. The men folk could learn from the ladies that there are more ways of putting pressure on an opponent in possession of the ball without wrapping the arms around them. A disappointing aspect of the day was the fact that seven members of Galway's intermediate team were also on the senior panel. They should not have been expected to play both games on the same day; the intermediate final could have been played in Croke Park previously with hurling or football games.
