There were huge celebrations at Darver on Saturday afternoon as the Tyrone senior Camogie team produced their best display of the season to claim the Very Camogie Division Four league title defeating Wicklow 3-16 to 0-10.

A wind assisted first half saw them establish a 1-9 to 0-3 lead at the break with Lara Devlin, Rachel O’Neill and Cara Little hitting first half points and the highly impressive Devlin plundering a twelfth minute goal as Tyrone showed real intent establishing a 1-7 to 0-0  lead midway through the first half.

The highly rated Wicklow side eventually found their scoring touch and in the second quarter of the first half outscored the Red Hand girls three points to two as the Tyrone defence and midfield were forced to dig deep. Goalkeeper Eimear Colton was steady throughout with her accurate clearances and calm persona a feature of the game. The full backs Bronagh Moohan and Grace Daly tidied up numerous break balls and won huge amounts of possession through bravery and hard work.

The half back line of Aoife Mc Donald, Grainne Mc Donald and joint captain Una Mc Cann along with the outstanding midfield duo of Aine  Cunningham and Olibhia Farley totally dominated the Wicklow forward line restricting them to pot shots under pressure and scores from placed balls. Meanwhile the front six hurled with passion, skill and teamwork, especially in the second half when playing into the gale.  They outscored Wicklow during the second half 2-7 to 0-7 with goals from Lauren Fitzgerald and Olibhia Farley proving decisive.

This was a very mature, composed display of camogie played with passion and determination resulting in a national title. Congratulations to all involved as they now turn their focus on the championship later in the season.

Although this result was all about the team, special mention to player of the game Lara Devlin who was perpetual motion throughout scoring 1-7 into the bargain.
