It’s been a busy few weeks for camogie in Kilkenny but this weekend saw the final local fixtures for 2021 confirmed.
Wins for Piltown and Dicksboro means they will contest the Michael Lyng Motors Hyundai senior county final.
Dicksboro turned up the heat against defending champions Thomastown, putting in a solid shift on Sunday morning to come away with a 2-7 to 0-9 victory.
Clara may have been tipped for the final on last week’s Camán Caint but Piltown had enough in the tank to edge their semi-final by a single point, 1-11 to 2-07.
Thomastown won’t be without camogie for the winter though they still have last year’s Leinster championship to look forward to.
At intermediate grade, James Stephens are on course for back-to-back titles having seen off Mooncoin in the junior final last year.
The Village will face Barrow Rangers in this year’s intermediate final having seen off a fancied Mullinavat side 2-17 to 0-14 on Sunday. ‘Rangers had room to spare on Sunday’s scoreboard as they booked their final berth with a 3-15 to 1-06 win over St. Claires.
Finally, at junior grade, Mooncoin will meet Piltown in their final.
Piltown’s second team have had a good run this year, finishing Sunday with a 2-10 to 2-07 win over John Lockes/Bennettsbridge while Mooncoin edged Carrickshock 1-10 to 0-09.
While it may be hard to look past Mooncoin in the junior final, this year’s championship has shown that anything is possible, but you can hear the experts call it their way on Camán Caint, out Tuesday evening.
All games are set to be played on Sunday 14 November with times and venues yet to be announced at time of writing.
