The Moycullen U12 Camogie team take on Abbeyknockmoy this Saturday (15th June) in the U12 All County league Final.Moycullen topped the group in the round robin stages of the competition beating all teams including Ballygar, Tuam, Sylane, Bearna na Forbacha and Abbeyknockmoy. When the two finalists met earlier in the competition the tie was a close encounter with excellent camogie from both sides. The final is set to be a similar affair with very little likely to separate the sides. The development of Camogie in Moycullen has been going from strength to strength since the club reformed in 2009. With teams at U6, U8, U10 and U12 and over 100 members the future is bright for camogie in Moycullen.
