A goal in the fourth minute of injury time from Marie O'Connor booked Kilkenny a place in the Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship final. There they will face Cork who dispatched Wexford with ease in the other semi-final.
A goal in the fourth minute of injury time from substitute Marie O’Connor sensationally propelled Kilkenny into the Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship final following their pulsating two-point win over hot favourites Galway at Nowlan Park on Saturday, by a score of 1-13 to 1-11.
Ann Downey’s charges never gave up despite falling behind by five points early in the second half, but powerful play by Colette Dormer and Ann Dalton, kept Kilkenny in the hunt.
Elaine Aylward was superb at wing back and it was the Mullinavat player who passed to O’Connor for the winning goal.
Cork are back in their eighth consecutive SCC final following their 2-13 to 1-10 victory over Wexford in Nowlan Park.
Having played with the elements they trailed the Slaneysiders 1-5 to 0-6 at the break – the Wexford goal coming in the 19th minute from Ursula Jacob.
Cork were a different outfit in the second half with Briege Corkery and Orla Cotter impressing.
When Corkery broke through for Cork’s first goal, they were on level terms, 1-8 apiece.
An Emer O’Farrell green flag was the impetus the Rebels needed, eventually running out deserving victors.
