Loreto Kilkenny crowned Junior All Ireland Schools Camogie champions

The school defeated Presentation Athenry on Saturday in the decider

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.
