In Pictures: Joyous scenes as O’Moore’s claim third Laois camogie title in five years

For the third time in five years, O’Moore’s are Laois camogie champions.

That’s some going for a club that prior to 2016 had never even won it once.

But in a thrilling final in MW Hire O’Moore Park on Saturday, they saw off the brave challenge of St Brigid’s to win 0-15 to 0-10.

In an unusual year, it was an unusual finale; the biggest game of the season played behind closed doors, though live streamed on the Laois Camogie Facebook page for those who couldn’t attend.

St Brigid’s, seeking a first title since 2004 and keen to end their losing streak in finals, arrived to the decider unbeaten.

But O’Moore’s had beaten champions semi-final and despite indifferent form in the group stages, they had plenty of quality and experience throughout their team.

And so it proved as they came back from a half-time deficit to claim glory, the latest success under manager Dermot McGill.

Afterwards captain Alison McEvoy was presented with the trophy by Laois Camogie chairman Barney O’Connor while Laura Marie Maher was honoured as the LaoisToday ‘Player of the Match’ and presented with her prize by Alan Hartnett.

Photographer Joe Bermingham was on hand to capture a selection of images afterwards.
