PODCAST: SportsDaz Camogie (Thursday, 4th August 2022)

Darren Kelly and Killian Whelan present the magazine show previewing the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland camogie finals.


  • 0:00 – Latest News
  • 26:35 – Preview – Antrim vs Armagh (All-Ireland Premier Junior Final)
  • 42:20 – Preview – Cork vs Galway (All-Ireland Intermediate Final)
  • 57:15 – Preview – Cork vs Kilkenny (All-Ireland Senior Final)

Darren and Killian discuss the latest news including previewing the Nancy Murray Cup final between Tyrone and Wicklow; we look at Cork and Laois’ wins at under 16 level and ahead to this Saturday’s games in Kinnegad; Susan Earner steps down as Offaly manager; and the referees have been appointed for Sunday’s games in Croke Park.

We then move onto those three games starting with Antrim and Armagh at 12pm.  Since the Glens’ arrival during the Ulster championship, they’ve pushed the Orchard in both the Ulster Final and the group stagest.  Jennifer Curry (O’Leary) is chasing a fifth All-Irelanad (eight years after her last with Cork) but Antrim showed steel in getting through Clare the last day after double extra-time.

Then its the meeting of Cork and Galway in intermediate.  Neither county can be promoted but for one, their players will.  Both groups have a depth of talent and future seniros will be on show.  It’s their third All-Ireland Final meeting at this level (one win each) but they’ve never met in Croke Park and plenty of options for both Trevor Coleman and Cathal Murray, it promises to be a thriller!

Finally, it’s the clash for the O’Duffy Cup!  Cork and Kilkenny meet in camogie’s biggest game for the first time since 2018.  That was the last time the Rebelettes prevailed while the Cats tasted glory in 2020.  Both teams have been written off this year but found a way to survive.  Can Cork’s new management of Matthew Twomey and Davy Fitzgerald reach the Holy Grail, or will Kilkenny overcome changes in personnel on the field to succeed?
