LIMERICK camogie received a massive boost when Adare won the Munster Junior Championship by defeating Brickey Rangers of Waterford yesterday.
The magnificent victory comes only weeks after Adare edged-out neighbours Croagh/Kilfinny in the County Final and very soon after the unexpected but merited away success against Tulla of Clare at the semi-final stage of the provincial championship.
Under the astute management of Michelle Gallagher-Brennan, first-time finalists Adare produced a stellar performance to win the provincial title.
Caoimhe Costello, who is in the mix for an All-Star at the end of the month, contributed a seven points for Adare in their 1-9 to 0-8 triumph, the goal arriving in the opening stages from Aeibhín Houlihan.
The Limerick kingpins had led by three points at the interval.
Adare were captained by Sophie O’Callaghan, while Poppy Giltenane was selected as Player of the Match.
Meanwhile, 2019 All-Star Niamh Mulcahy hit a match-winning nine points as Ahane toppled Kileedy, 1-13 to 0-9, in the Limerick Senior Final at Ballyagran.
It was Ahane’s 13th title.
