Loreto Kilkenny added the school Junior All Ireland title to their senior one with victory over Presentation Athenry on Saturday.
An injury time goal from hat-trick heroine Caoimhe Keher Murtagh snatched a 4-9 to 2-12 victory for Loreto College Kilkenny over Presentation Athenry in the Tesco All-Ireland Post Primary Schools’ Junior A Camogie Final at St Rynagh’s in Banagher.
Keher Murtagh finished with 3-1 to her credit and victory was sweet for the Noresiders, and especially the survivors from 12 months ago, when they were denied by a goal in stoppage time from St Brigid’s Loughrea’s Kate Gilchrist.
Their 10th triumph at this level – all recorded in the past 13 years – also marked a famous double, following the Senior A triumph a fortnight ago in which Ali Kennedy, Kate McCluskey, Asha McHardy and Senior player of the match Emma Manogue were also involved.
Congrats to @LoretoKilkenny on their win in the @TescoIrl All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Junior A Final, where they beat Presentation Athenry by a 3-point margin in injury time!@OfficialCamogie @KilkennyCamogie @KilkennyCLG @gaaleinster #GAA #WomenInSport #TheToughest pic.twitter.com/GS2pN8HDVE
