Dublin Senior 1 Camogie Championship
Championship Semi Finals
Na Fianna v Naomh Jude (10:30am)
St. Vincents v Ballyboden St. Endas (10:30am)

It’s a huge day tomorrow in the Senior Camogie Championship. Both last year’s finalists are still in contention and avoid each other in the Semi Finals. Reigning Champions Naomh Jude have had a mixed campaign to date. Drawing against Lucan Sarsfields in the opening they got back on track to beat St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh before losing to St. Vincents in the final round leaving them as runners up. Tomorrow they go up against Na Fianna who finished as Group B winners after a three way tie. Wins over Kilmacud Crokes and Castleknock contributed to their advance to the last four.

St. Vincents have once again proved worthy contenders for another Senior 1 crown and were unstoppable over three round games. They had comprehensive victories over Plunketts and Lucan with their last game against Judes that little bit edgier but they prevailed nonetheless. Their opponents tomorrow are no strangers to the Senior Championship having won it on many occasions. Ballyboden St. Endas proved their worth over three games only losing in their opener to Castleknock by a point. It’s been some time since Boden have looked like contesting the top tier competition but they’re certainly not here to make up the numbers.

Shield Semi Finals
Castleknock v St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh (10:30am)
Lucan Sarsfields v Kilmacud Crokes (10:30am)

Dublin Senior 2 Camogie Championship
Championship Semi Finals
Balinteer St. Johns v Skerries Harps (10:30am)
Naomh Mearnog v Cuala (10:30am)

Ballinteer St. Johns have chalked up wins over Cuala, Good Counsel and Faughs/Celtic to finish top of Group A and secure their spot in tomorrow last four clash. Over those games they’ve hit the net 9 times so there’s no denying the danger they pose in front of goals. They’ll be looking to add to that tomorrow when they face a Skerries Harps side who won’t want to leave the competition at this stage. Harps secured wins over Na Fianna B and Erins Isle to reach tomorrow’s tie.

Ahead of Skerries in the Group B table were Naomh Mearnog who again are in the mix for the Senior 2 title they left behind last year. They registered three wins from three to give themselves a Semi Final draw against runner up opposition, who tomorrow will be Cuala. Cuala dropped points along the way losing to Ballinteer and drawing against Faughs/Celtic in their opener. They finished a point ahead of Good Counsel to qualify.

Dublin Inter 1 Camogie Championship
Championship Semi Finals
Naomh Peregrine v Ballyboden St. Endas B (10:30am)
St. Vincents B v Whitehall Colmcille (12:30pm)

After the three round fixtures it would suggest that St. Vincents B and Naomh Peregrine are the front runners to each this year’s Inter 1 Camogie Championship Final. But as we’ve seen before when it comes to the knockout stages nothing can be taken for granted. Peregrines have gone unbeaten so far to secure 6 points in Group B. So they’ll be confident facing Ballyboden St. Endas B tomorrow. Boden have been wirht the money with wins over Naomh Fionbarra and Naomh Brid though only dropping pints against Vincents in the final round.

Like Peregines, Vincents are another unbeaten side in this competition having Boden, Brigids and Finbarrs in the rounds wiht not too much difficulty. But they’ll face a tough match against Whitehall Colmcille who are well within their weight class in the Inter 1 competition. They only lost to Peregrines by a single point in their opener, and recovered to put in convincing eins over Naomh Padraig and Raheny to secure a runners up spot in the group behind Peregrines.

Shield Semi Finals
Naomh Brid v Naomh Padraig (10:30am)
Raheny v Naomh Fionnbarra (10:30am)

Dublin Inter 2 Camogie Championship
Championship Semi Finals
Lucan Sarsfields B v Naomh Olaf (10:30am)
St. Vincents C v Naomh Maur (12:30pm)

The battle in Group A between Lucan Sarsfields B and Naomh Maur for the top spot went down to the last roudn. And it was a goal that seperated the sides at full time with Lucan securing the winners tag. It gives them Group B runners up Naomh Olaf in tomorrow’s semi final draw. Olafs loss to St. Vincents C in the opening round saw them playing catch up with the Marino side for the rest of the competition. But they’re still in and will show up tomorrow to cause an upset.

St. Vincents C look strong after some big results over their three rounds, finishing with a 9-11 to 1-04 win over Kilmacud Crokes B last week. And they’ll try carry that momentum into tomorrow’s last four clash with Naomh Maur. Maurs will be confident having only lost to Lucan by one goal in the final round and will be hoping to keep their Championship hope alive tomorrow.
