Kilkenny capture Legends title
Kilkenny were crowned the 2011 Legends Champions after a pulsating clash with arch rivals Galway at St Judes GAA Club, Dublin on Saturday afternoon, March 5th.
Kilkenny attacker Marina Downey and SinÚad Millea led the scoring charts for the Cats with Brigid Mullally chipping in with a brace of points to record a 4-7 to 3-9 win over the Connacht side.
Galway’s Sharon Glynn was the chief scorer for the Tribeswomen with an impressive tally of 3-9. Cork, Wexford, Kilkenny and Galway took part in the seven-a-side Inaugural Legends tournament on the eve of the All Ireland Club Camogie Finals.
The Legends Cup was named in honour of the late Biddy Phillips, a national camogie referee and administrator who passed away on July 6th 2010. Phillips managed Tipperary to their first senior All Ireland camogie title in 1999. She was a long serving member of the Camogie Association serving on the National Referees Committee. She took charge of the All Ireland Senior Camogie Final in 2007 and was also referee for the Intermediate, Junior & Senior Club All Ireland Finals between 1993 and 1999.
The 2012 Camogie Legends Tournament date will be announced later this month. For further details check out www.camogie.ie
