We’ve 2 games throwing in this Sunday as our Minor Camogie panel start this year Leinster Campaign
Sunday February 12th 2023
Dublin v Wexford
Leinster Minor Camogie Semi Final
TU Dublin, Grangegorman. 2:00pm
Four teams contest this year Leinster Minor Camogie Championship Semi Finals. Kilkenny, Offaly, Wexford and Dublin will battle it out for the U18 honours. And Dublin have been paired with Wexford in their last four clash this weekend.
The Dublin Minors are under the watchful eye of new manager Ashling Kennedy. Hailing from Good Counsel Liffey Gaels, Ashling has played Inter County Camogie at Juvenile, Minor and Senior level. And she currently still plays with her club Good Counsel Liffey Gaels. Having every qualification to manage and train a team in her back pocket, she trains the U15s, Minors and U20s at her club and is also involved with her daughters Club St. Annes at Nursery and at U21 level.
The Minors squared off against this Sunday’s opponents in April of last year. And in a very tight competition, the Dubs were 1-07 to 0-09 winners on the day over Wexford. They’ll be hoping for more of the same this weekend. The winners will face either Kilkenny or Offaly in the provincial final at the beginning of March.
Dublin v Antrim
Allianz National Hurling League Division 1. Round 2
Parnell Park, Dublin. 3:30pm
There’s no denying that last week’s opening hurling league clash between Dublin and Wateford was a very tense affair down in Fraher Field. New manager Micheál Donoghue’s Dublin senior hurling panel came away from the away trip with a point on a tied 2-19 to 3-16 scoreline.
The one major positive to take from last week was Dublin’s ability to score goals again. Cian O’Sullivan found the net twice, and with Donal Burke converting a penalty it resulted in a great return against a battling Deise side.
This weekend Dublin have a great opportunity of adding their first win to the board as they welcome Antrim to Parnell Park for the second time this year. The Ulster men posed as Dublin’s opening round opponents in the Walsh Cup, Donoghue’s first competitve game in charge of the boys in blue. The recorded a 7 point victory beating the Antrim men by 3-26 to 2-22. A home win would set Dublin up nicely before the face Tipperary at home in 2 weeks time.
