All roads led to Dublin on Saturday as the Tyrone under 14’s competed in the All Ireland Blitz. They started the day at Croí ro Naofa park in a section with Meath, Westmeath and Mayo. The games were played as two twelve minute halves and the top two teams in the group progressed to the semi-finals.

First up for Tyrone was Mayo and early on Megan Vincent scored a long range point for the Red Hands. Casey Gallagher then pounced on a loose ball to net the first goal as Mayo were unable to deal with the pace of the Tyrone midfield. Mayo found the back of the net with a long range wind assisted score before repeating the dose shortly after. Tyrone responded with points from Megan Vincent and Catherine Muldoon to leave the game a draw at the break with a score line Mayo 2-0 Tyrone 1-3.

Westmeath were up next and points from Leanne Donnelly(2), Niamh Faulker and Catherine Donnelly gave a much deserved win to Tyrone, Westmeath 0-0 Tyrone 0-4. The final match was Meath and a draw would see Tyrone progress to the semi final. The game proved to be a one sided affair as they ran 3-5 to 0-1 winners. Tyrone easily topped their group and they made the short journey to the semi-final to St Anne’s complex in Tallaght. The opponents were Kerry and the action around both goal mouths was frantic but Kerry were more clinical with their chances. The match could have gone either way as the sides had a similar style of play however Kerry took the final spot with a score line of Tyrone 2-1 Kerry 3-2. Kerry went on to win the final when they beat Wicklow. It’s now the end of the season for this age group and the season will be remembered for the displays on the field and of course that Ulster championship title win. The girls will have a presentation evening at the start of November. A big thanks to Ross Corbett from Ulster camogie who made the day a seamless and enjoyable experience for all those who participated in the finals. Both the hosting clubs also laid on refreshments for everyone on the day. Some parents also made the journey to support their county and help out on the day.

All clubs are asked to forward the names of the names of their under 16 players to Martin Donnelly for next Saturday’s championship blitz to be held in a Tyrone venue. More details will be sent out soon regarding format of the competition.

In club news there was a win for Eglish in the Minor championship and that now means they have done the double in that age category. It was a very entertaining match and thanks to all who came in support and also Derrylaughan Kevin Barrys for the use of their facilities at short notice.

The under 16 Eileen Coney Cup will be played this Friday with Edendork and Eglish. The under 14 championship will be decided on Friday week as Dungannon will take on Eglish.
