Camogie fans heading for Bansha on Saturday are sure to enjoy another enthralling ‘Tipp v Cork’ battle to decide the 2011 Munster Club Senior Championship . Throw-in is at 2pm so allow plenty of time to get there in the prevailing weather and road conditions.
Douglas and Drom-Inch pair off in the Final. Drom-Inch will enter the game as favourites having beaten a strong Cashel team in the Tipperary final last Saturday. This they had to do the hard way, as last weekend’s game was the replay but the third time that these two met in the final as the original final fixture was abandoned at half time due to weather conditions on October 23rd. The re-fixture ended in a draw as the sides needed the replay to separate them and in the end Drom won out with just two points to spare. Drom will look to Geraldine Kinnane, Niamh Harkin, Mairead Barry, Siobhan McGrath and Catriona Short for their scoring powers, while Therese Short will help to command the back line.
Douglas though have this year regained the Cork senior title for just their second time and also added the league to their cabinet this time round. This is the second time that they will have met Drom in the Munster Final, as the pairing met in 2008 when Douglas last won the Cork title. Douglas have matured and will this time be looking to overturn the result on that occasion when Drom were the winners. Douglas have overcome last year’s Munster Champions Iniscarra in the Cork semi-final and Milford in the Final. They then played Ballygran of Limerick in the Munster Semi-final where they held out the Limerick challenge in a tough game. Manager Mick O’Regan will be hoping that these tests will stand to his girls in the final. Douglas will look to Amanda O’ Regan, Katrina Mackey, Julia White, Maria Harkin, Rachel O’Sullivan, Emma Kavanagh, Sinead Duggan, Aine O’Donovan, Julia Tracy and Jess Kavanagh in goal.
This is set to be a close game with little to separate the teams in the end. Enjoy what promises to be a great contest
