St. Columban's Win Schools Camogie Title

Mar. 27, 2015


St Columban’s win the title


Successful St. Columban's Team: Back (L-R) Caitlin Keown, Niamh Kilgannon, Aoife Keaney, Sinead Barrett... Front (L-R) Eimear Magee, Ciana McGrath (Captain), Niamh McAloon

Congratulations to the girls from St Columban’s PS who recently won the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol indoor competition. The girls started the competition slowly with a loss and a draw in their first two matches. However as the group stage progressed the girls gradually got into their stride and wins over St Paul’s Irvinestown and St John the Baptist Roscor as well as a draw against St Mary’s Mullymesker saw them reach the semi final.

In the semi final the girls played St Ninnidh’s who defeated them earlier in the competition. This game turned out to be a thrilling encounter. The game was level at full time and two further periods of extra time failed to separate two evenly matched teams. It was then down to golden goal to decide the winner. After almost fifteen minutes of play Sinead Barrett struck the goal that sent the Belcoo girls to the final.

In the final the girls played neighbours St Mary’s PS Mullymesker who they had drew with earlier in the day. The Belcoo girls started brightly and Eimear Magee struck a great early goal to give them the lead. The game then flowed from end to end without further goals. As Mullymesker pushed forward looking for the goal the Belcoo girls all worked exceptionally hard to hold on and win the title for the first time since 2013. 

This was a great team effort with all girls playing their part; Goalkeeper Niamh McAloon pulled off a number of saves while Aoife Keaney and Sinead Barrett defended well in front of her, team captain Ciana McGrath played a leading role in the midfield sector while Eimear Magee was a willing outlet further forward. Caitlin Keown and Niamh Kilgannon were also important members of the squad.

The girls now represent their school and Fermanagh in the Ulster competition which will be held in Co. Down next month.
