Waterford edged out Cork in a titanic battle to book a place against Antrim in the Irish Daily Star Division 2 league final on a 1-12 to 1-9 scoreline.
The final will be a repeat of last September’s All-Ireland junior camogie final, when the Saffrons came out on top against their DÚise opponents.
Ruth Geoghegan’s goal was the difference between these two sides in the play-off, although Waterford had a host of other scoring contributors.
Ultra-reliable Poc Fada champion Trish Jackman slotted four points from frees and another from a free, while former Soaring Star Karen Kelly notched up three fine scores. Zoe O’Donoghue raised two white flags and Nicola Morrissey also shot a point.
Cork kept plugging away with UCC star Patricia Buttimer firing over four points, two of which came from 45s. Marie O’Neill also shot four points adding a score from play to three from placed balls.
Marie Walsh got on the scoresheet too while Marie Watson bulged the net with a good finish but despite their best efforts, Cork couldn’t bag the second goal they needed to bring the game to extra time.
Meanwhile, Loreto Kilkenny won the Colleges’ junior A All-Ireland title, beating St Patrick’s Maghera by 3-11 to 0-7.
