Cork face Tipperary this Saturday in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Championship Semi-Finals. The game will be played in Semple Stadium with a 7.15pm throw-in.
Reigning champions Cork come into the fixture with a 100% record, including a win over their Semi-Final opponents, as they topped Group 2 and gained a direct passage to the Semi-Finals. They'll be hoping to reach a fifth consecutive All-Ireland Final on Sunday September 9th.
We caught up with Niamh O'Callaghan as they prepare for a tough clash against Tipperary.
Q. How do you fancy your chances against Tipperary and does a Semi-Final come with added pressure by being champions?
"We're very happy so far with our progress, but we also feel we have an awful lot of work to do in the camp.
"That's our focus now at the moment – we're just taking it step-by-step and not looking ahead to anything like the All-Ireland Final or anything at all, just taking it step-by-step."
Q. You mentioned that you’re a teacher, how do you manage to balance work and playing Camogie for both your Club and County?
"People always slag teachers for the lifestyle that we have but it definitely is suited to the GAA lifestyle. At times it can be demanding – you're coming from work or going training but I'm fortunate that i have the time and we have the holidays that i can focus on Camogie."
