Cullohill 8-4 Castletown 0-1
Roinn 1 Camogie Final
Cullohill continued their strong Cumann na mBunscol tradition as their camogie team got the better of Castletown in the Roinn 1 decider in O’Moore Park this afternoon.
Two early goals from the lively Aoife Kirby set them on their way while a long-range free from Lisa Kirby and a powerful finish from Rachel Dollard accounted for their four first-half goals.
Lisa Kirby also hit a great point from way out on the right wing into the Town End goals while Catherine Kirby also got in on the scoring act. At half-time Cullohill led 4-2 to 0-0.
Castletown, who had former Laois great Paul Cuddy among their management team, battled on bravely in the second half with the likes of Shannon Conroy and Caoimhe Cuddy impressive.
But they could find no way past the brilliant Mia Henderson in the Cullohill goals – who pulled off three quality saves in quick succession.
Lisa Kirby added to her tally in the second half with 1-1 while Rachel Dollard got in for her second goal. Caoimhe Cuddy pointed a free for Castletown in response and added a goal late on but it wasn’t enough to deny an impressive Cullohill outfit with Dollard adding two more goals before the final whistle and sub Eadaoin Whyte chipping in with a point.
