Camross’s incredible winning ways continued in O’Moore Park on Saturday when they won the intermediate hurling title to complete a remarkable day for the club.
They had won the junior and intermediate camogie titles earlier in the day and then duly rounded things off in style with their men’s second team claiming the intermediate title.
They now move up to the Senior ‘A’ grade for 2020 and many of the intermediate players could still play their part with their senior side who will be going for three-in-a-row. They play Rathdowney-Errill in the semi-final on Sunday week, October 6.
As always there was strong family connections. Damien Keenan, a multiple senior championship winner, captained the side – his daughter Kirsten had earlier been player of the match in the intermediate camogie final.
In a short but fitting speech, Keenan dedicated the win to Phil Duggan who was the club’s chairman up to his death last week and was manager of the intermediate side that lost last year’s county final.
Other players like Malvin Moloney, Michael Phelan and Tadhg Doran were adding intermediate medals to the senior ones they’ve won in previous years while many of the younger players have won minor and U-21 in recent seasons.
David Mortimer was presented with the man of the match award after a fine display.
While winning a county final in O’Moore Park isn’t a new thing for Camross, they duly celebrated joyously afterwards.
