Indoor Hurling & Camogie’ Heat 2: OMAGH

Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Thír Eoghain held the second of two scheduled heats, on Tuesday 19 January, of the annual 5-a-side ‘Indoor Hurling and Camogie’ for primary schools in Omagh’s Station Centre. A total of 10 local schools entered teams in both codes for this qualifying heat, which produced a tremendously high level of skill from all involved. Tyrone’s Games Development Administrator, Anne Daly, expertly officiated at the event. Tyrone’s Allianz Cumann na mBunscol PRO, Eddie Doris, co-ordinated events over the two days.

Four schools competed for a coveted place in the Tyrone Indoor Camogie Final. The girls from St. Patrick’s P.S. Castlederg and Gaelscoil na gCrann battled bravely in the competition, but just fell short on the day despite their valiant efforts. Maith sibh! The teams who eventually prevailed were St. Colmcille’s P.S. Carrickmore and Recarson P.S., with both teams qualifying for the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Camogie Finals. A memorable highlight of the day was the thrilling 4-4 draw played-out by these talented girls. These two triumphant teams now await the qualifying schools from the East Tyrone heats to be held in Dungannon later this week.

Six school teams competed in the Hurling competition. Once again, the standard of play was of an extremely high nature. This is testament to the great work being done by many people in our Primary Schools. After another absorbing competition, St. Brigid’s P.S. Altamuskin, Gaelscoil na gCrann, St. Patrick’s P.S. Castlederg and Recarson P.S. bowed out despite displaying some wonderful skills.  Section winners St. Colmcille’s P.S. Carrickmore and Our Lady of Lourdes, Greencastle, proved just that little bit stronger and, as such, qualified for the county Hurling Final. Well done, boys!

The Camogie section was impacted, somewhat, by the late withdrawal of two schools – due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control. However, Holy Family P.S. Omagh and Gaelscoil Uí Dhochartaigh, An Stráth Bán, both displayed tremendous skill levels to book their respective places in the County Final at the end of January. Well done, girls!

Four schools competed in a drama-packed Hurling section. St. Dympna’s P.S. boys battled bravely in the competition, but fell just short on the day despite their valiant efforts. Things would go the final match to determine what schools would qualify for a coveted place in the Tyrone Final. A late equaliser was enough to deprive the talented lads from Holy Family P.S. – despite their heroic efforts. The teams who eventually prevailed were the impressive St. Mary’s P.S. Killyclogher and Gaelscoil Uí Dhochartaigh, Strabane – who topped the section. These two triumphant teams now await the qualifying schools from the East Tyrone heats to be held in Dungannon this week.
