Bringing fans to the heart of the action, the episode focuses on the varying perspectives of the AIB Camogie All-Ireland senior club final between Sarsfields and Dicksboro as the Kilkenny side claimed their first ever AIB Camogie All-Ireland senior crown.

AIB, proud sponsors of the AIB Camogie All-Ireland Club Championships, today released the third episode of ‘Meet #TheToughest’, a content series which gives fans a never-before-seen perspective into the AIB Camogie All-Ireland senior club championships. This week’s episode gives an unparalleled angle of the on-pitch action between Sarsfields and Dicksboro in what was a thrilling affair that saw the Kilkenny club win their first ever senior club All-Ireland title.

The third instalment of ‘Meet #TheToughest’ features footage captured through the viewpoint of Camogie referee Ray Kelly as he officiates one of the biggest days in the Camogie calendar. This footage is combined with a unique look at the intense on-pitch action, showcased through fans watching on in the stands.

The tightly contested final saw three-in-a-row chasing Sarsfields take on first time finalists Dicksboro and neither side disappointed – providing an exhilarating game for all spectators both in stadium and at home. Dicksboro hit the ground running with corner-forward Aoife Prendergast leading from the front while Siobhan McGrath kept Sarsfields in tow with a first half goal. As the second half progressed the game could have gone either way with both sides taking the lead and levelling. The Kilkenny club powered on with a series of late scores to win their first AIB Camogie All-Ireland senior club title by a four-point margin of 0-18 to 1-11.
