THE Gala All Ireland senior and junior camogie finals will be staged side by side in Croke Park next month, with the Bord Gßis GAA hurling U-21 All Ireland final completing the triple header on September 13. Up to now the camogie matches were the first and third leg of the day, but this year the GAA in conjunction with the Camogie Association have varied the programme.

There is an alteration to the start times as well with the Gala All Ireland junior final between Offaly and Waterford getting underway at 12.45pm, the senior final involving Cork and Kilkenny at 2.45pm while the hurlers of Clare and Kilkenny will meet at 4.30pm.

The previous two years TG4 showed the junior final and the U21 hurling final. However, this year, RT+ will broadcast both camogie games live during a four-hour long programme.

Camogie Association President Joan O’Flynn said, “”I am looking forward to two great games of camogie. We are hoping for a big attendance on the day. Waterford camogie fans will travel in large numbers for the first time to Croke Park to see their team take on Offaly in the junior final, while the Black and Amber come up against reigning champions Cork.

“”We are also delighted that both camogie games will be covered live during a four hour programme by our national broadcaster RT+. This year it will be a great family day out particularly for Kilkenny supporters with their teams featuring in the senior camogie final and the U-21 hurling final.””

Meanwhile, Armagh will be without Andrea McAlinden for their replayed Nancy Murray Cup final against Roscommon at Drumlane Co. Cavan on Sunday. The corner forward notched a crucial goal in the second half of the tied game, but is leaving for Australia today and will be

d by Cathy Smyth.

The Rossies who contested last year’s final and have yet to taste All Ireland glory, had a disappointing start the last day however a fair reflection of their ability to turn matches around was displayed in two second half goals from Claire Curley.

Elsewhere, Mayo, Donegal, Louth, Cavan, Wicklow and Monaghan will play for the Mßire NÝ ChinnÚide Cup in a one day blitz at the Monaghan Harps GAA grounds on Saturday.
