Sunday, September 23rd 2018

We roll on this weekend with the 2018 We Are Dublin GAA Senior Camogie Championship and theres a few massive games to get stuck into.

Senior 1 – Group 1

Reigning Champions St. Vincents got off to a flying start in this years Championship with a 1-10 to 0-07 win over St Judes last week. As did Ballyboden St. Endas, who were 4-11 to 3-06 victors over Skerries Harps. Harps first year in Senior 1, following their Senior Championship win last year, didn’t get off to the best start but they’ll welcome Judes for Sunday’s game in the hope of registering their first win.

But the game of the round is definitely Vincents and Ballyboden who’ve had some serious battles over the years. They met at the exact same juncture last year with St. Vincents winning 2-12 to 1-05, but twelve months is a long time in Camogie.

There’s point to be had and the top spot to be secured before the final round so it’s still all to play for.

Senior 1 – Group 2

One game in Group 2 as Lucan bring their 3-19 to 4-05 win over Ballinteer St. John’s into their bye week. But Ballinteer will have another tough task on their hands as they face last year’s beaten finalists Na Fianna. The girls from Mobhi Road had the first weekend off but will be raring to go on Sunday. These sides met in Round 1 last year with Na Fianna running out 2-14 to 2-04 winners. They topped the group and went on to beat Ballyboden in the Semi Finals.

Na Fianna will be looking to get another Championship Final appearance again this year, and it will take a lot to stop them.

Senior 2 – Group 1

St. Vincents B team’s opening game against Naomh Mearnog to be rescheduled, it’s their first week out and they’ll be facing Good Counsel. Counsel had a goal filled opener against Faughs/Celtic last weekend with Good Counsel finally winning by the narrowest of margins on 5-03 to 2-11. They’ll be ready for the challenge of Vincents.

For Faughs they’ll want to bounce back from that narrow defeat with a trip to Mearnogs. If Good Counsel win their knockout position is almost secured.

Senior 2 – Group 2

Erins Isle came up against a very strong Kilmacud Crokes side last weekend, who beat them by 0-12. They’ll be welcoming Raheny to their club this Sunday, with the Raheny girls coming in off the back of an 0-18 defeat to St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh. Both sides will be looking to get their first points on the board ahead of Round 3.

With Round 1 wins for each team, Kilmacud travel to Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh to battle it out for the top spot. There’s only two scores between them in points difference so this could be a complete shootout.

*Please note all fixtures are scheduled for 10:30am this Sunday, September 23rd. Information is correct at the time of this post, but may be subject to change.
