Cahir’s under 14 camogie team will be the hurling stars to watch this weekend as they represent the county at the Community Games finals in Athlone.

Over the weekend of August 20 and 21 Cahir will be represented in Athlone on the second weekend of the finals by the brilliant under 14 Camogie team.

Once in a lifetime a group of brilliant athletes emerge in certain sports and they lift the profile of that particular sport to an inordinate level. This particular bunch of girls comes into this category and together with last year’s team they have done Trojan work for the sport of Camogie in Cahir. They are going for their second all Ireland community games titles in a row following on all the wonderful present day senior players of the past and present that have competed in these finals. This is a very balanced team from leaders all over the field including the brilliant Ashling Moloney and Roisin Howard and the workhorse of the team Aoife Corcoran and Carol Casey who in my mind is one of the most improved performers on this present team. Over the next weekend there will be performers taking part that will be household names in the future of Tipperary Camogie so don’t miss out on the opportunity of seeing them in action.

Details of times of games etc. can be obtained on the Community Games website.

In their first game they take on a Lucan side that they beat in the final last year so come on girls let’s add this crown to your Feile Division 1 title already in the bag this year.

Behind every good team there are a crew of dedicated mentors and huge credit is due to Manager Mary Howard and mentors Martin Halpin and Anthony Corcoran for the immense work that has been put into the coaching and welfare of this bunch of girls.
