In Pictures: Leinster and All-Ireland winning Laois U-16 camogie team honoured with civic reception

Laois U-16 Camogie team Civic Reception (9)

A Laois team that claimed Leinster and All-Ireland camogie glory this year were honoured with a civic reception recently.

The Laois U-16 camogie team enjoyed a brilliant 2022 where they won it all.

Padraig Henderson’s charges took on Carlow in the Leinster ‘B’ final back in May. 

They made a dream start when full forward Kaylee O’Keeffe struck for a goal in the opening minutes.

Laois led 1-4 to 0-2 at half time and continued to pile it on in the second half to win 3-7 to 0-4 in the end.

In the All-Ireland series, Laois breezed past Offaly, Meath and Kildare in the group stages.

They once again defeated Carlow in the semi final before claiming All-Ireland glory against Antrim – 4-7 to 3-7.

Council officials made a presentation to all of the squad at a ceremony last week.

All players were joined by management and family members at great event.

Photographer Michael Scully was there on the evening and captured some great pictures.
