St. Thomas' semi-final hoodoo put to bed in thriller

Thu, Dec 21, 2023

Galway's St. Thomas' simply refused to accept a fourth successive semi-final loss as they prevailed over Ballygunner on penalties in Saturday night's epic semi-final showdown. The victory sets up a clash against Leinster champions, O'Loughlin Gaels, in the All-Ireland Club Hurling Championship in January. If Saturday's game is anything to go by, the Galway side's doggedness and never-say-die attitude will stand them in good stead in Croke Park.

St. Thomas' were underdogs going into Saturday's game, but instead of being a team that were not expected to win they turned into a team that refused to lose. The team from the west absorbed all the pressure thrown at them and some. The six-in-a-row county champions defied all odds to send tournament favourites Ballygunner crashing out in the most pulsating of semi-finals that went all the way to a nervy penalty shootout.

Thu, Dec 14, 2023

Sarsfields are set to contest this year's All-Ireland Senior Club Camogie Final for the third year running. They have won their previous two finals, beating Oulart-the Ballagh(Wexford) in 2021, in a repeat of their loss the year prior, before defeating Loughgiel Shamrocks of Antrim in 2022.
