Oranmore Maree overcame Mullagh in the first of the Window and Rooflights LTD Senior A Semi Finals on Saturday in a wet and windy Kilbeacanty. Oranmore Maree, who led from the outset of the game never looked like relinquishing the lead and looked the hungrier side throughout the contest. Oranmore Maree, who played with the wind advantage in the first half, started the game the brightest scoring 0-4 in the opening 12 minutes with points coming from Ailish O’Reilly (2), Amy Connolly and Eimear O’Donovan. Then on the 13 th minute, Niamh Hanniffy took on the Mullagh defence on her own and she blasted the ball into the back of the net to leave seven between the teams. Racheal Monaghan responded with Mullagh’s only score of the half, but Ailish O’Reilly finished with 1-3 from frees, with the goal coming on the 24 th minute when the ball was lobbed into the back of the Mullagh net from a long range free to leave it 2-7 to 0-1 heading into the half time break.
Things didn’t improve for Mullagh at the beginning of the second half when wing back Erica Coen received a second yellow card and she was dismissed from the playing field. O’Reilly got Oranmore Maree’s opening score of the half but Monaghan tried to start a Mullagh revival with a point from play and through a free on the 39 th and 41 st minutes respectively to leave it 2-8 to 0-3 heading up to the midway point of the half. Two more points, one from play and one through a free, from Ailish O’Reilly helped in extending Oranmore Maree’s lead heading into the final few minutes. Monaghan, Mullagh’s only scorer on the day, got the final score of the game to leave it 2-10 to 0-4. Oranmore Maree will be delighted to be back in the county final again after last years disappointment. However, they will have to wait to find out who their opposition is as the other semi final between Athenry and Sarsfields was postponed after a pitch inspection deemed the pitch unplayable. Mullagh will be disappointed to have bowed out at the semi-final stages and that they didn’t get key scorers such as 2021 Player of the Year Aoife Donohue on the scoresheet for the day. Oranmore Maree will be looking forward to finding out who their opposition and they will be hoping they can bridge last year’s disappointment and go one step further this year.
In the Duane’s Hardware Intermediate Championship Semi Finals, last year’s finalists Salthill Knocknacarra have booked their spot in the final with Castlegar in a clash of the city titans. Salthill Knocknacarra and Shamrocks played out a thriller in Ballinderreen on Saturday in a repeat of the 2021 semi final where the teams required extra time to separate them. There was nothing between the teams from the outset with county Intermediate stars, Ally Hesnan, Niamh McInerny, Katie Gilchrist, Laura Kelly and Siobhan Divilly all to the fore for their respective teams. There was only a point between the sides at half time with Salthill up 1 point. Kelly’s free taking was key to the success for Salthill. Kelly and Gilchrist exchanged scores in the opening 20 minutes of the 2nd half to leave it 0-8 to 0-7. It always felt like the team who got the goal would run out victors in this game and in the 52nd minute, Sorcha McGinley got at the end of a well worked team move and stuck the ball into the back of the Shamrocks net. McInerny and Kelly did reply with 3 points before the finish for Shamrocks but it was just too late.
In the other Semi-Final, Castlegar overcame Killimor in Bullaun on Saturday morning. In a tough game, played in tough conditions Castlegar’s team work and good defensive system helped them in overcoming Killimor, a side who were relegated from Senior Camogie last year. Castlegar, who are the current league champions were on top throughout the contest. Twins, Elisha and Chloe Broaderick, were to the fore for most of Castlegar’s scores throughout the contest while Niamh Horan, who is returning from injury for Killimor, tried hard through placed balls. Castlegar ran out 0-12 to 0-5 winners on the day. This is a massive improvement for the club to make the county final having bowed out at the quarter final stages of the competition over the last 3 years. The mixture of youth and experience has proven key to their success this year.
