Eglish camogie club are still training hard as winter approaches. Training at this time of year for any camogie club would usually have been for an all Ireland semi-final.
However the Tyrone kingpins were still eagerly awaiting their first Ulster title in 24 years on Sunday past while the outcome of a replay on the other side of the draw was decided.

An appeal by Armagh champions Madden against the result of the other semi-final meant that the final has been delayed for over a month while the replay between Armagh champions Madden and Derrys Watty Graham’s Glen was finally played on Sunday.
Even with home advantage and the wet and windy conditions Madden found Glen too strong in the day and the Derry side triumphed on a final score of Madden 1:08 Glen 6:05.

As far as Eglish are concerned Captain Ciara Donnelly’s performance will be paramount to their hopes in the final. Ciara has had a personal award since her semi-final win against Liatroim when she lifted the Ulster

Intermediate Player of the year award and she had this to say.

“We are all looking forward to the final with excitement. We don’t know a lot about our opponents but we do know they have talent. It has been 24 years since the club last lifted an Ulster trophy and expectation mounts year on year. We have come so close in previous years only to lose by a whisker and we don’t want to be disappointed again this year.”
Ciara is top scorer this year and she will be hoping to increase her tally and end her team’s painful wait for Ulster silverware. The Eglish manager Martin Curry ,Middletown Armagh

was looking forward to finally getting back to competitive action.

“It’s a great honour to coach such a great bunch of talented girls. It has been our ambition from the start of the year to reach an Ulster final. We play our camogie in the Derry league and we know how competitive it is. We are expecting a tough physical encounter from our opponents and we hope we will be ready for the game.”
Two other players on the team also lifted personal awards since their semi-final. Leanne Donnelly was voted minor player of the year and Ciara McGready lifted the senior award at a ceremony in Bundoran on Friday last for the Teamtalkmag.com awards.
