Myshall are the last local side standing in the Leinster club camogie championships.
Following defeats for Barrow Rangers (v St. Rynagh’s), Muinebheag (v Raharney) and Dicksboro (v Oulart The Balalgh), the Naomh Eoin club find themselves in the Leinster club intermediate final.
That game – against defending Leinster and All-Ireland champions St. Rynagh’s of Offaly – takes place this coming Saturday in Coralstown (Kinnegad GAA Club) at 1.30pm.
Myshall showed class and experience in Saturday’s provincial semi-final to edge a tough Kilmessan side 3-13 to 0-10.
For St. Rynagh’s, despite trailing three points to Kilkenny intermediate champions Barrow Rangers at the break, the defending All-Ireland club champions showed their credentials to turn things around for a two-point win at the final whistle.
Myshall and St. Rynagh’s will be well familiar with each other, the Offaly champions taking a win at Naomh Eoin in the 2020 championship played out last winter. December’s clash was a tight affair that ultimately saw Myshall slip to a four-point defeat.
Muinebheag bow out
Muinebheag’s Leinster championship run also came to a close on Sunday against a strong Raharney side at McGrath Park.
Going up against the 2020 All-Ireland junior champions was always going to be a tough task and it proved just that for Muinebheag.
Trailing 1-09 to a single score at the break, Muinebheag couldn’t get anything going in the second half as the Westmeath champions held Bagenalstown scoreless after the restart to run out 2-15 to 0-01 winners.
Raharney now face county neighbours Tullamore this coming Sunday in the Leinster junior club final.
2021 proved a fruitful year of the club with the Bagenalstown side claiming both the junior camogie crown and senior shield in Carlow.
