In Pictures: Camross U-20s celebrate latest county final success

And the silverware keeps coming for Camross.

The club’s senior team may have missed out on claiming an historic third Laois county title in a row but it was still a fruitful season for the club.

The age grades have been changed this year and on Saturday afternoon they won the first ever Laois U-20 hurling final, less than 12 months after they had claimed the last U-21 crown.

It completes the underage days for this group of players and it rounds off a successful era, one that saw this team win county finals at U-12, U-14, U-16, minor and now U-20.

On Saturday – in cold but dry conditions in O’Moore Park – they saw off the challenge of first-time finalists Raheen Parish Gaels on a scoreline of 3-19 to 1-17.

Three first-half goals set Camross on their way and they always had enough in hand to hold off a decent Raheen Parish Gaels team.

A handful of these Camross players won the intermediate final earlier this year, some have already played senior – and many more can expect to feature in the coming years.

And the weekend isn’t over for the club yet.

The camogie team make the trip to Ashbourne on Sunday to take on Offaly champions St Rynagh’s in the Leinster intermediate final.

Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was in O’Moore Park this afternoon where she captured a selection of images.
