Galway cruised into the All Ireland Camogie semi-final after a 16-point victory over David Herity’s Dublin.
Galway who face Kilkenny in the semi final will be given plenty of confidence by the way they earned this victory as right from the off they had Dublin’s number in what was a remarkable defensive display.
Dublin seemed determine not to allow Galway in for goals, but the tribeswomen responded with some fantastic long-range points to keep the score board ticking.
Orla Beagan opened the scoring for Dublin before Galway took over and responded with 4 unanswered points from Catriona Cormican (2), Niamh McGrath and Carrie Dolan.
Dublin’s Orla Beagan smashed over Dublin’s second point in the 17 minute which would be their last of the half as Galway were far more economical with their possession and raced into a 6-point half time lead.
At half time the score was 0-08 to 0-02
David Herity would have looked for an immediate reaction to his half time team talk but instead it was Galway who started the brighter and built up a commanding 0:11 to 0:02 lead leaving Dublin in massive trouble.
Galway put in a fine display in what was a day to forget for the Dublin ladies as Galway ran out 0:20 to 0:04 winners.
Up next for Galway an interesting match up with Kilkenny and based on this display Kilkenny will be slightly worried and aware of the threats a well organised Galway team will bring.
