Tyrone Camogie Notes

By damian Sun 1st Apr

The Tyrone minor team failed in their final bid for county honours on Sunday in the Ulster Shield Finalagainst an experienced Armagh squad.  An early injury to Cara Fitzgerald within five minutes and an injury plagued season meant that the task was going to be a difficult one from early on.  The team did play well but were defeated by a stronger and more clinical Armagh side.  The good news is that the senior squad will be bolstered by the promising players in the coming years.  A big thank you to Frankie Begley who put a lot of time and effort in trying to advance the county squad in the competitions this year.
The attention will now turn to the senior squad which will travel to county Wicklow on Easter Sunday in what is hoped will be a chance for the teamto bounce back after the last defeat at the hands of Dublin.  This will be the final league match of the season and all of the managements time and effort will bededicated to the championship which begins at the end of June.   A series of injuries to key players have hampered the preparation but it is hoped that over the next month that the squad will return to full fitness for the five matches in as many weeks.
The Senior training will continue of Tuesdays and a series of friendlies have been arranged for Sundays. Last week saw the start of  all league club fixtures within Tyrone with most of the age groups participating in what will be a longand busy season for the young camogs. There were wins for Eglish and Dungannon in the Post Primary section and  Derrytresk and Eire Og fought out a hard draw in the remaining match.
In the under 16 league Dungannon and Eglish played a tight match that also ended in a  draw.It is encouraging to see the large numbers of young camogie players at all the under age levels in what is certainly a resurgence of the sport in Tyrone.
The county board will be on Thursday night at Quinns Corner at 7:15 and all clubs are reminded to send two representatives to the meeting.  The Croagh Patrick walk will be taking place on Saturday 14th April.  All clubs are to have concrete numbers known before the board meetingso that transportation can be arranged.
The walk will be taking place to raise much needed funds for club and county camogie.  Tyrone camogie Chairperson Pat Darcy will also be taking part in the walk and we congratulate him and Tattyreagh Gac for conquering the summit last week.
A big congratulations to Crossmaglen Rangers for winning the AIB All Ireland Club gaelic football competition on Saturday by beating Garrycastle in convincing style.
