Fifteen games throw in tonight to start five more of the Adult Club Championships
Tuesday, September 3rd 2019
The Senior 2 and all Junior competitions take centre stage tonight as Round 1 starts properly in all five of these Camogie Adult Club Championships.
At 6:45pm fifteen games will get underway across Senior 2 and all four sections of the Junior Championship.
St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh are already up and running as they played a rescheduled Round 4 game last week. Plunketts came away the winners in the game and they’ll look to keep that momentum going tonight as they face Naomh Meaning. Raheny head for Good Counsel in the hope of picking up their first win. Elsewhere Kilmacud Crokes and Cuala start their campaigns off against each other.
Bringing their Thursday game forward to tonight Whitehall Colmcille head for Faughs/Celtic to face their B side in this opener. Whitehall only lost one of their group games in last year’s Championship and will be looking to build on that record. Faughs recorded wins in their first two Championship games in 2018 finishing middle of the group. Anything less than that this year will be a disappointment.
Good Counsel B finished last year’s Group 2 competition with their only group win so tonight they’ll be looking to improve on that as they welcome Na Fianna C. The Mobhi Road side lost both of their 2018 group games so they’ve nothing to lose this evening.
Coming down from Junior 1 in 2018 Skerries start their campaign off against Naomh Mearnog’s B panel. And St. Vincent’s D team welcome Naomh Barrog who had a fantastic Championship last year.
With Kilmacud and Cuala first teams squaring off in Senior 2, they’ll be joined by their respective C and B panels as they too face off in the Junior 3 competition.
In the other Group 1 game St. Finians go head to head with Castleknock B.
Group 2 sees Erin’s Isle’s C team welcome near neighbours Naomh Brid for their opener. And Ballydoden St. Endas C travel to St. Anne’s for their Round 1 clash.
Four games over two groups in the Junior 4 grade. Round Towers facing Cuala C is the only game in Group 2.
Ballinteer St. John’s C and Lucan Sarsfield D will meet in Group 1. Binn Eadair have their very first Adult Championship action as they face Wild Geese. And Naomh Peregrine’s B team will face Ballyboden St. Endas D in their opener.
