The Tyrone county under 16s travelled to Stradone in County Cavan on Saturday to play Cavan in the Ulster Shield Final. The team were kitted out in their new sponsored jerseys for the first time this year.

It was a very tight contest for the first ten minutes as the teams traded scores, however consistent pressure from Cavan resulted in a one sided score-line as the half progressed. Cavan were very potent in front of goals and in spite of the heroic efforts of the Tyrone keeper Aisling Mc Laughin the half ended with Cavan enjoying a substantial lead of 8-4 to 1-6.
Tyrone made a few changes at the start of the second half but their opponents maintained their fine form scoring three early points. The game took on a whole new lease of life for Tyrone when the Red Hands Roisin Mc Erlean scored two goals and a point in the space of two minutes. Leanne Donnelly added another goal for Tyrone with fifteen minutes left of the half.

From then until the end the game was much more competitive  before Cavan added another goal and a point near the end to leave the final score Cavan 9-9 Tyrone 4-7.

Maura McGurren vice chairperson of Ulster camogie presented the winning shield to Cavan captain Ciara Finnegan.


The Tyrone County Board would like to thank the management of the team for their work with the squad over the past few months. The parents and supporters who made the long journey from all corners of the Province should be proud of the display from the girls. A special thanks goes to Niall Jackman who took time out to video the game.
