It will be a case of Groundhog Day for Derry’s Slaughtneil and Galway’s Sarsfields as they face off in this year’s AIB All-Ireland Senior Club Championship Final on Sunday March 18th at Croke Park – a repeat of last year’s Senior Final. Meanwhile, Kildare’s Johnstownbridge and Galway’s Athenry are on the hunt for All-Ireland glory in the AIB All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship Final.
AIB, sponsors of the Camogie, Hurling and Football Club Championships, will again live stream both finals across their channels, and on their YouTube channel.
Galway has a strong representation in the AIB All-Ireland Camogie Club Championship Finals with both Athenry and Sarsfields in the finals. Athenry overcame Waterford’s Lismore in the Semi-Final while Sarsfields saw off Burgess-Duharra by one point, in what was a tight battle between both sides.
Slaughtneil beat Kilkenny’s Thomastown in their Senior Semi-Final while Johnstownbridge claimed victory over Tyrone’s Eglish to book their place in the Intermediate Final at Croke Park.
There has already been celebration for members of the Senior finalists, as Slaughtneil’s Clare McGrath and Sarsfields’ Niamh McGrath both picked up AIB Provincial Club Player of The Year Awards for Ulster and Connacht respectively.
Camogie Association President, Catherine Neary, is eagerly anticipating the Finals: “The level of dedication and commitment exemplified by the players from all four clubs in pursuit of All-Ireland glory must be acknowledged and commended.
 The Club Championships are undoubtedly one of the toughest competitions to win and they occupy a special place in the hearts of all Camogie and Gaelic Games followers. For all of us, the club is where it all begins and on March 18th communities from all the Gaelic Games family will unite behind their team as they cheer on the players who are representing their parishes on the biggest sporting stage in Croke Park on what is a very special occasion for players, their families and club members.”
Maol Muire Tynan, Head of Public Affairs AIB, said:
“It is truly our honour to be a partner for one of the toughest championships in sport. It all begins at home in the club. The passion and commitment from players and supporters is truly exceptional. All teams have faced many tough challenges to make it this far and AIB has been privileged to support them every step of the way.
“We’re delighted to show our support for Athenry, Johnstownbridge, Sarsfields and Slaughtneil whose youth, spirit, skill and wholehearted commitment represent all that is best in competitive games and has brought them to this year’s AIB All-Ireland Intermediate and Senior Camogie Club Championships Finals.
