There’s only a couple of weeks remaining in this year’s We Are Dublin GAA / Dublin Camogie Adult Club Championships
Sunday, October 20th 2019
We’re literally counting down to all the final games in this year’s We Are Dublin GAA / Dublin Camogie Adult Club Championships. And tomorrow sees another fourteen games throwing in across Senior, Inter and Junior competitions. There’s important games in championship and shield competitions as well as some relegation play off action. Here’s all you need to know.
Senior 2 Camogie Semi Final
St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh advanced to this year’s Senior 2 Camogie Final after last weekend’s victory over Naomh Mearnog and await their final opponent. We had to wait a week due to the original fixture being postponed, but tomorrow Kilmacud Crokes and Good Counsel do battle for that final slot.
Crokes finished at the top of the Senior 2 table with almost a perfect record. But even drawing with Naomh Mearnog in their final round game wasn’t enough to unseat them. Good Counsel finished third in the table, winning three and losing two round robin games. But it’s tomorrow’s result that counts regardless of the finishing place.
Inter 1 Camogie Shield Final
Despite beating Naomh Brid in their final round game, Naomh Fionnbarra missed out on a championship semi final slot on score difference. Tomorrow they face Naomh Padraig, who also finished third in Group 2, for the Inter 1 Shield.
Inter 1 Camogie Relegation Play Off
no one ever wants to find themselves in a relegation battle, but for Naomh Peregrine and Ballyboden St. Endas B that’s exactly what they face tomorrow.
Ballyboden didn’t register a win throughout their Inter 1 campaign. Last week Naomh Peregrine faced Na Fianna in a decider as both finished in Group 1 on two points. And with Na Fianna securing the win it means Peregrines now do battle again to play for their Inter 1 safety.
Inter 2 Camogie Semi Finals
We already knew the four sides that would contest the Inter 2 Camogie Semi Finals in the Adult Club Championships. And after last week’s results we discovered the pairings for tomorrow deciders.
CBC/Portobello finished the round robin with five comprehensive wins. And for their efforts they’ll face fourth placed Lucan Sarsfield B in tomorrow’s first semi final. The sides met in Round 3 with CBC/Porto running out 4-15 to 1-04 winners.
Crumlin and Clann na Gael played each other just over a week ago and the game finished with Crumlin just shading the win by two points. So you can be guaranteed a very tight affair again between these tow tomorrow.
Junior 1 Camogie Semi Final
Last week Whitehall Colmcille continued their impressive Championship run with a 2-10 to 1-01 win over St. Vincents C in the first Junior 1 Semi Final. They know await the outcome of tomorrow’s second semi between Naomh Maur and Kilmacud Crokes B. Crokes finished behind Whitehall in the Group 1 table, with Maurs unbeaten in Group 2.
Nonetheless this should be an evenly contested match up tomorrow.
Junior 1 Shield Semi Final
With three points from four games, Erins Isle B found themselves in third place in Group 1 of the Junior 1 Camogie competition. But they have the chance of some silverware if they can beat St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh B tomorrow in the first Shield Semi Final. Plunketts only picked up one win in four games so have the chance to continue their championship.
Junior 2 Camogie Semi Finals
In the tradition of first versus fourth and second versus third, the Junior 2 competition will see table toppers Naomh Barrog take on St. Vincents D. While Good Counsel B will lock horns with Na Fianna C.
Barrogs beat Vincents by a goal in their Junior 2 opener. Good Counsel and Na Fianna also met in Round 1 with Counsel four point winners that day.
Junior 3 Camogie Semi Finals
Unbeaten Castleknock B face Commercials in the first of two Semi Finals tomorrow. Commercials had gone unbeaten until facing Naomh Brid B in the final round.
Brigids will take on St. Finians who finished runners up in the Group 1 table behind Castlknock. Naomh Brid racked up some big scores in the Round Robin stages and will be a hard nut to crack tomorrow.
Elsewhere in the Junior 3 competition, Cuala B and Setanta play out their remaining Group 1 Round 5 fixture.
Junior 4 Camogie Final
It’s a big day for Lucan Sarsfield D and Na GAeil Oga tomorrow, as they do battle for the Junior 4 Camogie title. Both teams topped their respective groups. Lucan were 2-07 to 0-07 semi final winners over Round Towers of Clondalkin. Na Gaeil Oga were 5-09 to 0-05 winners over Naomh Peregrine B in their last four clash. This ones too close to call.
Junior 4 Shield Semi Final
Ballyboden St .Endas D will face Cuala C in a Junior 4 Shield Semi Final. Both sides finished in third position in their respective round robin groups.
