FBD Insurance Senior Championship
Burgess Duharra 1-12
The meeting of Burgess Duharra and Silvermiens was a hard fought game where every ball and score had to be earned. For Burgess Duharra Fiona Kirwan was solid in full back and had a great game. Duharra’s county players all performed well, Ciara Holohan had a clean sheet in goals while Caoimhe Maher and Jenny Grace worked very hard in the middle of the field. Up front Ciara McKeogh and Ciardha Maher kept rotating between the full forward and centre forward position keeping the Silvermines backs on their toes. Iris Grace who was part of the U16 A Tipp team that reached the All Ireland final this year has settled well into her wing back position and had a strong performance. Silvermines never gave up and produced a very good performance making Duharra really work for the win. At half time Burgess led 9 points to 6. A second half goal from Ciara McKeogh along with the accurate free taking of Jenny Grace helped to ensure victory for Burgess Duharra who will now face Eire Og Annacarty in the county quarter final.

Nenagh Eire Og 2-04
Clonoulty Rossmore 6-23
Nenagh Éire Óg had a very tough night against a very formidable Clonoulty Rossmore Senior camogie team on Saturday evening.
After a promising start which produced a first half goal from Caroline Browne Nenagh found themselves trailing by 7 points at half time 1-03 to 2-07. Clonoulty’s goals coming from Eimear Bourke and Kate Ferncombe. Clonoulty's superior firepower and top class play proved too difficult for Nenagh to handle in what was a very one sided second half. All the Nenagh players gave it 100% but it wasn't their best night at the office. Four more goals in the second half including 2 from Cait Devane helped Clonoulty to run out easy winners. As second place finishers in the group they will now face Thurles Sarfields in next weekends’s county quarter final.

FBD Insurance Intermediate Championship Round Up
Cahir and Newport Ballinahinch met in Cahir on Saturday evening in the FBD Insurance Intermediate Championship. Newport Ballinhainch raced into an early lead and when Grace O’Toole hit the back of the net after 12 minutes Cahir were trailing 1-06 to a single point and looked to be in serious trouble. In an amazing turn of events the goal was the catalyst for a Cahir comeback and with Rosin Howard switched to full-forward she was unstoppable with 2-05 before half time. Carol Casey also pointed to put Cahir into the lead at the break 2-07 to 1-06. Newport used the break to regroup and emerged in the second half with a renewed urgency and fight. Points from Grace O’Toole, Saoirse McGrath and Keeley Lenihan put Newport back into the lead as Cahir started to struggle to win the breaks. Added pressure from the Newport attack resulted in 2 second half penalties. The first was saved but the follow up eventually resulted in an Amy Quigley goal while Grace O’Toole pointed the second penalty. Roisin Howard along with Sarah Finnane and Kate Lonergan continued to work hard but could only manage 2 second half frees resulting in a narrow 1 point defeat 2-10 to 2-09 after an enthralling contest.
Toomevara’s depleted Intermediate Camogie Team battled hard when defeated by a fine Boherlahan team on Saturday. The game got off to a quick start with both teams getting a goal inside the first few minutes. Boherlahan showed some great camogie displays in the first half with all 6 forwards getting on the scoreboard. Katie Ryan was lethal in front of goal for Toomevara and took her three goals very well. While county player Mags Quigley was a shining light in the Toomevara defence. Jill Anne Quirke and Mary Flaherty were others who impressed for Toome. At half time Boherlahan Dualla led 4-08 to 2-02. Boherlahan pulled away in the 2nd half scoring 1: 4 without reply. The North girls were struggling with girls carrying injuries but battled away and scored 3 second half goals. Boherlahan though had just too much for their opposition and ran out comfortable winners on a final scoreline of 5-18 to 5-04.
The other game in the Intermediate championship was the meeting of Borris-Ileigh and Shannon Rovers in Borrisoleigh. This was another cracking game with huge intensity throughout. After 10 minutes the score was level at 2 points each. Aoife Fitzgerald with the Borris-Ileigh points from play. On the 12th minute, Ava Bevans struck a superb goal while 3 pointed frees by Emma Maher gave Borris-Ileigh a 1-05 to 0-04 lead at half time. The Borris full back line of Emma Galvin, Niamh McGrath and Jane Delaney were in super form throughout. Both sides traded pointed frees on the 34th and 36th minutes before Shannon Rovers Rovers hit 4 unanswered points (2 frees & 1 x 45) to level up the game on the 55th minute. Jane Delaney was outstanding in defence for the homeside while up front a pointed free by Emma Maher after Dani Ryan was fouled gave Borris the win on a final scoreline of 1-07 to 9 points. It was a very good team performance by Shannon Rovers and they fought right to the end with chances to snatch victory. Their scores came from Aoife McLoughney, Celine Guinan, Laura Leenane and Emma Darcy.
