It was a disappointing day for the Tyrone u14 camogs as they lost narrowly in the final of the Ulster championship on Saturday past to Cavan. The pitch in Eglish was drenched in sunshine and both teams had the maximum squad members from which to choose. Tyrone were very slow to start and Cavan were able to capitalise on this and scored a couple of early goals. Points were traded between the teams before Tyrone snatched a goal of their own and at half time Cavan held a lead of five points.

Tyrone came out for the second half spurred on by a large home support. Progress was slow but the points came and the gap was narrowing. Tyrone were enjoying the lion’s share of possession and at times Cavan simply could not get hold of the ball. However when they got the ball Cavan took their points with ease from open play. In spite of battering their opponents goal Tyrone could not make the telling breakthrough. There was ten minutes on the clock and the pressure was relentless on the Cavan goal keeper. Sadly for Tyrone the only thing rising was the number of wides and with only three points in it the excitement was palpable.Cavan were looking as if they were just about clinging on when the final whistle sounded.

It was a massive effort from the young camogs who were clearly disappointed at the end. It’s now one honour a piece for both teams this year. A massive thanks to all at Eglish who hosted the event. The pitch was in superb condition and a local lad , Kevin Muldoon, was on hand to play the National Anthem on the bagpipes and the supporters and players appreciated this a lot. Team trainers Fionnuala McGrath and Bernie Mallon deserve a lot of credit for the effort they put in and the players didn’t let them down.
The team can now put the disappointment behind them as they travel to Dublin on Saturday for the All Ireland Blitz. A full panel of 26 players will travel and all players are asked to be at the Centra shop on the Quarry lane Dungannon for 8:15 am sharp. Everyone to wear black track bottoms and a Tyrone Jersey. Please bring a substantial lunch with plenty of fluids and sun cream.

In club news the final of the under 16 championship between Carrickmore and Eglish was postponed due to the involvement of the players in the county championship final and a new date will be fixed and circulated as soon as possible. The minor final between Dungannon and Derrylaughan scheduled for next Sunday has still be be finalised and details will follow shortly. Congratulations to Eglish who lifted the Post Primary League and they can now add that to their championship title won earlier in the year. There will be a Go Games hurling and camogie u8 and u10 Blitz on Saturday 22nd of September in Killyclogher starting at 10am. All clubs to have the appropriate details regarding team participation filled out as requested by the email sent to all secretaries. It will be an excellent opportunity for the young camogs to be part of such a high profile event and all clubs are reminded of the importance of informing players and parents.

The All Ireland camogie finals will be held in Croke Park on Sunday and many of the Tyrone clubs will be there to support our sport. We hope everyone has a brilliant day away and enjoy the high level of comogie the finals always throw up.
