IT was Dublin on the Double for the Morey family of Clare last weekend.
Camin Morey scored three frees for Clare against Anthony Daly’s Dubs in Division 1 of the NHL in Parnell Park on Sunday.
His sister, Chloe, also scored three frees as Clare defeated the Dubs in the U-16A All-Ireland Camogie Championship in Clare on Saturday.
Chloe then stepped out with the Clare Seniors in Division 2 of the National League on Sunday away to Antrim, and although the Banner were beaten, she still managed to notch a point.
Clare’s U16s defeated the Dubs, 2-21 to 1-2, to record their third win in Group 1. They now top the Group with Galway. Clare and Galway have had three wins out of three.
Dublin lost their opening tie to Galway before beating Antrim in Ballycastle. Dublin will conclude their programme with a home tie against Cork.
Both sides are out of contention at this stage. It’s the top two in the section that proceed to the semi-final.
Still, Dublin played with much gusto during the campaign, and their attitude greatly pleased the management team of Eddie Byrne, Siobhan Carolan, Gerry McGough, Sandra Tarr and Frank Drohan.
There’s no lack of talent in the panel, and it looks certain that many of the girls will go on and play for the Blues at Senior level.
Two who look likely to do so are Aoife Bugler, who scored the Dublin goal, and Aisling Carolan, who provided the two points.
