Meath’s three main adult championships finals took place last weekend, where Kilmessan emerged back on the throne as senior Champions. They went on to represent their county in the Leinster Club Championship on Saturday evening at 5.30pm. They travelled to Wicklow to play Donard Glen, who are the Wicklow senior champions.


Donard/Glen 1-4 v Kilmessan 4-8


Kilmessan outclassed the Wicklow champions in the first round of the Leinster junior camogie club championship.   After a shaky start Kilmessan settled down and got the first scores of the match  with an early goal from Aileen Donnelly  and further points from frees.  Stephanie Horan added another point before Katie Ni Choilean found the net again for the visitors. The Wicklow champs were on the back foot for most of the first half but still managed to score from play leaving the score 0-3 to 2-2 at half time.


Kilmessan started strongly in the second half and reaped the rewards from hard work from their back line & midfield to put over some fine scores. Lisa Horan in particular impressed with two excellent scores from play. Stephanie Horan & Frances Lynch netted for Kilmessan again with Donnelly adding further points from frees to put the game beyond the home side. Kilmessan conceded a goal in the dying minutes of the match but ran out comfortable winners.  Sarah Ross, Caoimhe O’Leary & Lisa Horan impressed for Kilmessan.


Kilmessan Team : N Sheridan, E Doyle, C O’Leary, N Lynch, S Ross (0-1), A Lynch, E Fitzgerald, F Lynch (1-0), A Donnelly (1-3), M Horan, L Horan (0-3), S Horan (1-1), Keira Ni Choilean, Katie Ni Choilean (1-0), O Doyle

Subs: D Fitzgerald for S Horan, C Sheridan for Katie Ni Choilean


Kilmessan will play in the Leinster club semi-final next Saturday 26th September against The Harps from Laois. The Laois champions overcame Myshall from Carlow on the score line of 4-8 to Myshalls 0-10. This will be a big ask for the Meath Club Champions Kilmessan as The Harps Laois have some notable players in Aine & Louise Mahony both players have been prominent on the Laois team for the past number of years. Like the Harps Kilmessan also have county players in Aileen Donnelly, Stephnaie Horan & Frances Lynch.  Kilmessan will have home advantage which should account for an extra point or two.  

The other semi-final pairing is between St Laurence’s (Kildare) V Drumcullen (Offaly). The Leinster Final is fixed for the 10th October.




Under 21 Championship


Blackhall Gaels 6-11.  Kilmessan 1-3


Blackhall opened their U21 campaign with a comprehensive victory over Kilmessan.  The Blackhall ladies were in fine form and looked to have the upper hand right from the start.  There were many fine individual performances with Emily Mangan and Helen Murphy holding fast in defence and the midfield duo of Holly Geraghty and Kristina Troy both in superb form.  An inspiring display from centre forward and captain Jane Dolan who racked up a tally of 4-8 secured a well deserved victory for Blackhall.  Orla Doyle and Katie Ni Choileann did their best to try and keep Kilmessan in contention.
