Waterford Camogs make history


Waterford’s senior camogie team made history on Sunday when they booked their place in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland quarter-finals for the first time ever with a 1-11 to 0-12 win over their Munster rivals Clare.

Sportstalk’s Camogie expert Ger Kinane was delighted for the Deise and they will help them going forward. Speaking on this week’s Sportsgirls Podcast she said: “A brilliant result for them. Very close game and a hard fought win for Waterford.They’ll be delighted going forward.”

In a close game Beth Carton was the star for Waterford finishing the game with an incredible haul of 1-09. Ger said: “It was a very close game. A two point win for Waterford. Beth Carton was the star of the show. She got Waterford off to a great start and they got 1-04 scored in the first 15 minutes.”

Clare made Waterford work for this win and kept with them for long periods but the Deise were able to hold on for a memorable win. “Clare had quickly settled and Chloe Morey got five points; she scored 10 in total. At half-time Waterford led by a goal: 1-05 to 0-05. From then on it was very close. It was tit for tat in the scores but Waterford held out for a famous win. They are into the All-Ireland quarter-finals in two weeks time for the first time ever in their history,” said Ger.
