Updated: November 20, 2011

Munster Senior Camogie Club Final
Drom-Inch 5-08 v 2-13 Douglas

Drom-Inch lived up to the favourites tag in this tie as the led all
the way through. Their ability in the goal area proving decisive, both
in attack and defense. A brace of goals from Mary Looby added to
goals from Geraldine Kinnane, Niamh Harkin and Catriona Shortt were
too much for the young Douglas side, especially since Rosie Keaneally
in the Drom goal was in top form today with the player of the match
performance. Drom’s goals came in the fifth minute from Geraldine
Kinnane, who also added five points from play, mid-way through the
half from captain Mary Looby and in a sucker punch to Douglas just
before the break from Niamh Harkin. Douglas were fighting all the way
though and had their scores from Claire Shine, Katrina Mackey had four
in the first half, three from play, with Julia White also pointing.
Drom led at the break 3-03 to Douglas 7 points.

Douglas gave themselves a huge boost when Aine O’Donovan goaled
immediately after the restart and the game ebbed and flowed keeping
the good attendance in Bansha entertained. Claire Shine added a brace
of points for Douglas. Drom were not finished in front of goal though
and Mary Looby’s second goal with 13 minutes remaining along with
Rosie Kenneallys point blank save from Katrina Mackey kept the Douglas
challenge at bay. Amanda O’Regan and a brace of frees from Katrina
Mackey were working hard to pull back the Drom lead but they never got
there as Catriona Shortt goaled for the winners five minutes from time
with Douglas last goal coming from Rachel O’Sullivan as full time drew
For Drom Rosie Kenneally, Geraldine Kinnane and Joanne Ryan were best
