Kilruane Camogie News
Training continues in preparation for the North Munster League. This is expected to start on 5th June.
Kilruane’s first game in the u18 ‘B’ championship will be away to Silvermines on 9th July. Also in this section are Nenagh, Cashel, Moneygall and Clonoulty.
The U14’s played the U14B County Semi-final against Boherlahan on Wednesday last in Templederry. This was the second time this year these two teams met with Kilruane just shading a win in the earlier group stages. However, despite Kilruane’s best efforts on the night, the stronger well-drilled Boherlahan team got the break of the ball and took their scores easily to put Kilruane away. Commiserations to the girls who put in a great effort in training and in all their matches, but a place in the Championship County final against Annacarty was not to be.
Team: Mickela McGrath, Catherine Tighe, Tara Lillis (B), Laura Shinners, Grainne Molloy, Bronagh Hogan, Sophie Whelan, Gillian McSherry, Michaela Lillis, Caroline Hill (Capt), Amy Quinlisk, Sophie O’Neill-Reidy, Sile Spain, Tara Lillis (K), Meadhbh Heenan. Subs: Leah Coen, Aoife Coffey, Aoife Sullivan, Leah Heffernan, Katie Gould, Clodagh Healy. Training will resume in two weeks in preparation for the league.
For the first time in many years, Cloughjordan entered a team in the U13½ Community Games Camogie competition. Nenagh provided the opposition on Friday night last in Nenagh. It was a great game of camogie and gave our younger girls a chance to showcase their skills. Nenagh ran out winners on the night. Well done to our panel, Tara Lillis (K), Bonny Conroy, Meadhbh Heenan, Aoife Coffey, Laura Shinners, Ella Kennedy, Amy Quinlish, Leah Heffernan, Sophie O’Neill-Reidy, Katie Gould, Britney Hogan, Sile Spain (Capt), Cliodhna Nevin, Molly O’Brien, Emma Conroy.
Hard luck to Claire Kennedy and the Tipperary Senior Camogie team who lost the Munster senior final to Cork on Sunday.
Well done to Bonny Conroy who has been selected for the Tipperary primary game squad.
Church Gate Collection
The club’s annual Church Gate collection takes place in Cloughjordan and Kilruane on June 8th and 9th.
Cake Sale and Coffee Morning
On Sunday 9th June a Coffee Morning and Cake Sale will be held in Ardcroney hall after 10am mass. This was a huge success last year with so many of the club giving so generously. We are hopeful of a similar response this year.
