This year’s highly anticipated AIB All-Ireland Senior Camogie Club Championships Finals will see Wexford’s St. Martin’s take on returning All-Ireland champions, Derry’s Slaughtneil. The AIB All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Club Championship Final will see Down’s Clonduff battle it out with Waterford’s Gailltír. All eyes will be on Croke Park on Sunday March 3rd as all four teams compete for All-Ireland glory during #TheToughest stage of the competition.
For anyone who can’t make Croke Park, AIB, proud sponsors of the Camogie, Hurling and Football Club Championships, will again live stream both finals for the third consecutive year on their Facebook page and on their AIB GAA YouTube channel as part of their sixth year sponsoring the All-Ireland Camogie Club Championships.
St Martin’s will attempt to dethrone an all-conquering Slaughtneil, who are hoping to claim three All-Ireland titles in-a-row after they defeated Inniscarra by nine points in a semi-final that secured their place at Croke Park. Meanwhile, reigning champions Slaughtneil proved too strong against Ardrahan in the semi-finals with a score of 0-8 to 0-4 that claimed their spot in the final.
Clonduff’s two-point difference against Craughwell in the semi-finals saw them through, with a final score of 1-8 to 0-9. Meanwhile, Gailltír’s three goals proved to be the deciding factor in their semi-final win over St. Rynagh’s, with five points separating the teams at the final whistle. This set the scene for the upcoming battle between the Down and Waterford outfits in the final stage of the AIB All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Club Championship.
Speaking at the launch Camogie Association President Kathleen Woods said:
“It’s an honour to have witnessed the dedication, commitment, and skill shown by the players from all four clubs to reach this year’s AIB All-Ireland Club Championships Finals.
“The club championships are undoubtedly one of the toughest competitions to win and hold a special place in the hearts of all Gaelic Games followers. The club is where it all begins and on March 3rd these players will take to the hallowed turf of Croke Park to do their parish, friends and family proud on the biggest stage of all. These should be two exciting Finals and I’d encourage all fans of Gaelic Games to make the journey to Croke Park to witness this spectacle.”
Maol Muire Tynan, Head of Public Affairs AIB, said:
“AIB is honoured to be a part of the Camogie Club Championships. The teams competing in the Senior and Intermediate Finals are a testament to the toughness of the competition and have shown relentless passion and dedication throughout the season. The unwavering support and community surrounding these games proves that it all starts at home in the club.
“AIB is delighted to show our support for Slaughtneil, St. Martin’s, Clonduff and Gailltír and wish them the best of luck as they compete in the final stage of their respective grades. It is an incredible achievement to reach this point in the season, and it all stems from the skill, commitment and spirit shown by the players and communities both on and off the pitch.”
