After winning the intermediate final, James Stephens camogie team can look forward to provincial action in our live game this weekend on KCLR against Raharney of Westmeath.
Raharney had a 2-11 to 1-13 after extra time victory over Clonkill in the Westmeath senior county final last weekend. While The Village had some respite after besting Rower Inistigoe two weeks ago.
The club’s camogie chairperson Brian Leahy was telling our Caman Caint podcast that the team is raring to go.

“Preparations have gone well, so we gave the girls most of the week off last week. Obviously, we were delighted to get the win, and they were celebrations. The girls have put a lot of effort in all year.”
“I think the problem with all teams, is trying to get training in. It is getting dark early, getting access to pitches with light so most of our training are at the weekend.”
“The girls came back Friday night, and we trained Sunday morning as well even though the pitch is heavy and wet with the rain. But they are mad for action and looking forward to the match. “
