All eyes will be on the semi-final draw tomorrow after the conclusion of the round-robin phase of the Gala All-Ireland senior camogie championship yesterday.
Kilkenny, Wexford, Galway and Cork go into the hat, giving camogie followers the prospect of two mouth-watering pairings in a fortnight.
With Aoife O’Connor providing the platform from the half-back line, Wexford blitzed a previously unbeaten Kilkenny outfit in the first half to lead by 2-7 to 0-2 at half time, Evelyn Quigley bagging both goals.
Michelle Quilty’s accuracy from frees improved matters for Kilkenny after the restart and she finished with six points but Ann Downey’s side had too much leeway to make up and lost 2-10 to 0-10.
Cork made light work of a Clare team that had been very competitive in the championship until this tie, with the Leesiders prevailing 2-20 to 0-8.
The champions appear to be hitting their stride at the right time and they led by 1-14 to 0-2 at half time, Julia White providing the goal.
Young prospect, Joanne Casey followed up her good form in last week’s defeat of Wexford with a goal three minutes into the second half and though Claire McMahon and Fiona Lafferty did their best, Clare never looked like rattling Cork.
It was one-way traffic in the third tie as Tipperary steamrollered Dublin 5-21 to 0-6. Claire Grogan struck for two goals, while Mairead Luttrell, Noreen Flanagan and JJoanne Ryan also raised green flags.
