Kerry’s Clanmaurice take on Westmeath’s Raharney this Sunday (9th January) in the 2020 AIB All-Ireland Junior Camogie Final.
It’s a repeat of the 2019 decider (which took place over two years ago) with a replay required to separate the teams.
Clanmaurice were victorious the second day by 3-6 to 0-6 thanks to goals from Saidbhe Hogan, Jessica Fitzell and Rachel McCarthy. They beat Athleague in this year’s semi-final with just 14 players.
Raharney have bounced back winning a seventh Westmeath title and followed that up with a massive scoreline over Celbridge in the Leinster decider. But they showed their battling qualities before Christmas, beating Derry’s Glen 0-9 to 1-4 thanks to late scores from Amelia Shaw and Aoife Doherty.
At the AIB launch ahead of Sunday’s game, Darren Kelly got a chance to get the thoughts of Clanmaurice midfielder Patrice Diggin.
Darren also chatted to Raharney joint captain Laura Doherty.
Throw-in at Moyne-Templetuohy on Sunday is 2pm.
This year’s AIB Club Championships celebrate #TheToughest players in Gaelic Games – those who are not defined by what they have won, but by how they persevere no matter.
