Some big losses to report on in the Weekly Inter County Results
Week Ending, Sunday, July 7th 2019
Heartbreak this afternoon for the Dublin Senior hurlers in Portlaoise, but congratulations to Laois who advance to the All Ireland Quarter Finals next week. Congratulations also to our U16 Camogie panel, who recorded a first round win against Clare earlier today in their All Ireland Championship.
Here’s the details from all the games.
Dublin 1-19 Kildare 2-21
Leinster Minor Football Final
Pairc Tailteann, Navan
Despite pushing Kildare into extra time when Fionn Murray levelled the game on 64 minutes, Dublin were eventually beaten in yesterday’s Leinster Minor Football Final.
Aaron Byrne and Eoin Bagnall both bagged 1-07 each for Kildare who overwhelmed Dublin in extra time, winning the silverware for the fourth time since 2013.
Dublin 0-09 Cork 2-20
Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship
Parnells GAA, Coolock
Dublin’s Senior Camogie team had no answers to rampant All Ireland reigning champions Cork yesterday afternoon in their third round Liberty Insurance All Ireland Camogie championship encounter in Parnells GAA club.
The game was all but over by half-time as Cork built up a commanding fourteen point lead as they cut Dublin open with a combination of slick interplay, off the shoulder running and accurate passing and shooting.
Dublin were much more competitive in the second half and the introduction of Alex Griffin, Aoibhe Dillon, Siobhan Kehoe and Ellen McGovern gave them a greater threat up front.
Cork 3-14 Dublin 0-06
Liberty Insurance Intermediate Camogie Championship
Cork Camogie Grounds
Dublin’s Intermediate Camogie team made the long trip to Cork yesterday, and sadly came away losing by 3-14 to 0-06.
The’s Dublin’s second loss in three games, and Cork second win in four. Next up for Dublin is a tough trip to Westmeath before returning home to face Galway. Their final round game is a trip across the border to Antrim.
Dublin 3-18 Clare 1-06
All Ireland U16A Camogie Championship
Parnells GAA, Coolock
Really becoming the home of Camogie in Dublin, Parnells hosted Dublin’s opening round in this year All Ireland U16 Championship. And the girls in blue didn’t disappoint.
In a fairly even first half Dublin lead by four scores on 1-07 to 1-03 at the whistle. But Dublin would finish the stronger through the second half outscoring their opponents by 2-11 to 0-03.
Final score in Parnells was a 3-18 to 1-06 victory for the Dubs. Next up is another home tie against Galway, who also claimed a victory in their opening game today, beating Wexford by 6-15 to 1-12
Laois 1-22 Dublin 0-23
All Ireland Senior Hurling Preliminary Quarter Final
O’Moore Park, Portlaoise
The O’Moore Park crowd was treated to a thrilling game this afternoon which culminated in Laois shocking Dublin into defeat.
Sadly Dublin were nudged towards the exit door and Laois have a Croke Park date with Tipperary next Sunday. They’re part of the last six in the hunt for the Liam MacCarthy Cup in 2019.
Dublin just seemed to be missing that killer instinct all day and the wide count was quite staggering from players who are normally hitting the target.
And so ends the inter county season for Mattie Kenny and the Dublin Hurling panel.
