Tyrone senior camogs failed to reach the final of the NCL on Sunday losing out to Limerick in Edenderry Co Offaly.

The game started with Limerick opting to take advantage of the very strong wind in the first half. The opening ten minutes saw the game being played out in the middle third game with both sides battling for supremacy.

Limerick opened the scoring with a well taken goal before Tyrone struck two quick points through Niamh McNulty and Shauna Jordan. Limerick were guilty of conceding a number of frees and McNulty added to her tally before she scored a goal with her boot.

The Treaty girls replied with two fine long range points before Emma Mc Aliskey struck a point from open play. Aisling Corr then sent over another point from a free to put Tyrone in a strong position but Limerick finished the half strongly scoring 1-2 before the break to leave the half time score Tyrone 1-5 Limerick 2-5.

Tyrone had the wind in their favour for the second half but it was Limerick who started the stronger and soon added a goal and a point to their total. They then played very defensively and put everyone behind the ball. Tyrone managed to add a point from a Corr free and although the Red Hand girls had numerous attempts on goal they failed to capitalise.

The two sides exchanged points at a rapid and frantic pace but Tyrone were unable to narrow the gap struggling with the conditions. The final score read Tyrone 1-9 Limerick 3-9. Limerick will now go on to play Kerry in the final after they beat Dublin in the other semi final.

Tyrone will now concentrate on preparations for the Ulster Championship on May 25th when they open against Down II at a home venue.
