Match Report: Galway camogie girls crush Cork to win 14th title – Galway Advertiser
Galway U16s secured this year’s All Ireland camogie crown, bringing their roll of honour to 14.
The Galway girls, led by Aine Keane, cruised to a 3-14 to 1-7 victory over Cork at MacDonagh Park, Nenagh, helped by a brace of goals from Niamh McPeake and eight points from Niamh Niland.
Although Cork enjoyed the best start when Cliona Healy helped them into a four point lead, Galway captain Áine Keane brought the sides level with a stunning goal before McPeake struck for her first major. It was a lead Galway would not relinquish.
Niland converted a couple of frees to make it 2-4 to 1-4 at half-time before Galway struck 1-2 when McPeake pointed before grabbing her second goal, and a Niland point made it an eight-point affair.
As Galway’s defence held firm, their forwards kept the pressure on, and Niland punished the Cork backs for the concession of too many frees to ensure a comfortable victory.
