A disappointing weekend for Dublin teams as three losses recorded in the weekly inter county results
Sunday, March 12th 2023
Kilkenny 2-25 Dublin 1-17
Allianz National Hurling League Division 1
UPMC Nowlan Park, Kilkenny
Two second half Eoin Cody goals helped Kilkenny cruise to victory over Dublin at Nowlan Park earlier this afternoon. And that win puts Kilkenny within touching distance of a Hurling League Semi Final slot.
Leading by 9 points at the break the game looked all but over. Back to back losses for Micheál O’Donoghue’s side is a worry but they can still get something from the league playing Laois at Parnell Park next weekend.
Dublin 0-08 Cork 3-21
Electric Ireland All Ireland Minor Camogie Championship
TU Dublin, Grangegorman.
A disappointing start to Dublin’s Minor All Ireland Camogie campaign with a defeat to a visiting Cork side who, to be fair, would have been worth the entrance fee as a neutral. The Leeside panel were as polished as you could imagine, imposing themselves on the game from the throw in, never looking like being caught.
Cork had a 3-13 to 0-04 lead at half time with goals scored by Ciara Morrison, Amy Shepherd Ellen Crowley. That lead gave the away team the opportunity to rest some of their key panel members, most notably Bronagh O’Shaughnessy who dominated in the forwards scoring 4 first half points. Kerri Austin lead the scoring for Dublin converting 3 frees. Zara Thorne, Helen Reynolds, Anna Thornton, Saoirse Behan and Tara Brady also added their names to the scorecard for Dublin.
Next weekend Dublin will play the second of their 3 home ties as they welcome Tipperary to Grangegorman hoping for a better outcome.
Laois 5-07 Dublin 2-07
Leinster U16A Camogie Championship
Colt GAA Club, Raheen
A second defeat for Dublin’s U16s this afternoon as they come away from Raheen losing to Laois by 5-07 to 2-07. But there’s still time for the girls in blue to qualify for the knockouts as they’ve yet to face Offaly and Kilkenny.
Dublin trailed by 12 points at half time and will be disappointed to have conceced some avoidable green flags which ultimately was the difference between the sides at full time.
