The under 16 championship final on Friday started a bumper weekend for camogie in Tyrone. The Eileen Coney cup was up for grabs as Eglish and Edendork took to the field in Derrytresk. In a blistering start Eglish forged ahead with four goals and a point in less than ten minutes. Edendork looked stunned but clawed their way back with a few goals and points of their own. The game was hugely exciting with end to end Camogie for the whole of the sixty minutes.
In the end Eglish held off a gallant Edendork fight-back to win by four points. The shield was presented to captain Alanna Muldoon by the niece of Eileen Coney, Lucy O’Neill . The player of the match went to Catherine Muldoon for her defensive solidity, free taking and all round high level of skill. She was presented with a crested Tyrone camogie bag.

On Saturday the county under 16 team descended on the Mid Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown for the Ulster championship. The format this year was a round robin blitz style with Cavan and Donegal also taking part. The games were of two twenty minutes halves with the top two playing in the final.

Donegal were up first for Tyrone and the Red Hands had a resounding win. Cavan played Donegal next and they also inflicted a heavy defeat on the determined side. The result meant that Cavan would play Tyrone in the final and it turned out to be a very close affair before Cavan took the title.
A huge thanks to all at Ulster Council for organising this well run event. The Tyrone captain Niamh Coyle from Father Shields in Greencastle did a great job and we wish the team every success for next year.

Naomh Treasa of Dungannon played their Ulster first round tie in the Bridie McMenamin shield at Cain’s pitch in Dungannon on Sunday. The Cavan champions Castletara were the visitors and it was only the second time the Dungannon side had progressed into this Ulster competition. The team battled well and ran out winners with a score-line of Dungannon 5-7 Catletara 2-5. They will now face Clontibret from Monaghan in two weeks’ time. A big thanks to the Clarkes club in Dungannon for the use of their pitch and facilities and especially Peter Toal for all the help he gives to the small camogie club.
Eglish will play the Tullysaran of Armagh on Saturday 29th as they progressed as champions of their county beating Ballymacnab on Friday past in the Ulster senior championship. This year’s Ulster Senior ‘B’ title will be a ‘round robin’ with the other team being Liatroim of Down being their next opponents on October 5th. The Eglish captain this year is Siobhan Hughes and she has wealth of experience for her club and county. She has a hat full of titles to her name with All Ireland and Ulster medals for her county and also county club honours. Siobhan had this to say ahead of her game on Sunday
“It’s a privilege to captain this year’s Eglish senior team. They are a dedicated hardworking bunch of girls who have been playing and training well all year despite the long season. With a good mix of youth and experience we can hopefully continue to reap the rewards of the successes of the club in the past few years. Success breeds success!”
We wish both clubs every success in the coming weeks as their training will intensify leading up to the crunch matches.

The final club championship title will be decided on Friday as Dungannon take on Eglish in the under 14 age group. The match will be in Edendork at 6:00pm and it promises to be a very well contested game.
