Westmeath Camogie Notes
25 June 2012
All Ireland Junior A Championship
Best of luck to the County team as it kicks off its championship campaign this Saturday, 30th June when they take on Offaly in Cusack Park at 5pm. The game is the opening match in a double-header with the Senior Footballers who take on Louth in the qualifiers. It would be great to see a big turnout of support for the girls on Saturday.
Under 14 finals
The Under 14 championship reaches its conclusion this week following semi-finals last week. In the Premier competition Raharney overcame St. Munnas and Castletown Geoghegan overcame Clonkill to set up a repeat of last year's final. The premier final takes place in Cusack Park this Wednesday 27th June at 7pm. These two teams contested last year's final and also the 2011 & 2012 Feile Finals and if these finals are anything to go by we should have another classic on the cards on Wednesday night.
Also on Wednesday night, St. Munnas and Clonkill will contest the Premier 'B' final at 6:30, whilst in the 'A' final Cullion take on Castlepollard at 5:30. At time of writing a venue had yet to be fixed for these finals.
