1737 See you all again for the Football finals next weekend. Well done to Offaly and Wexford on their achievements today.
1734 Thanks for reading today. Reports on all the matches will be in our GAA section. The Premier and Junior ones are already.
1728 Great celebrations by the Wexford players. The Tribeswomen are distraught, they gave it everything today but Wexford had that extra bit of quality.
1725 The referee blows for full-time, Wexford are the 2010 Gala Senior Camogie champions!
Full-time - Wexford 1-12 Galway 1-10
60 min Kate Kelly's shot falls short and Galway break. Connolly is denied by the Wexford defence. A dramatic conclusion to quite a dull final. Big credit to Galway but I think they've left it too late.
59 min Sensational. Connolly's shot sails into the top corner of the net but we're into stoppage time.
GOAL - GALWAY - AISLINN CONNOLLY
59 min Galway have a free from 30 metres, they need a goal.
57 min Curtin sums up Galway's day with a very poor wide from close in on goal.
56 min Wexford are trying to wind down time but they win a 45 which Jabob sends over. That should seal the win.
54 min Veronica Curtin scores Galway's first point from play from her forward line. They are still well in this game with five minutes to go. But it would be a surprise if the goal came. Wexford lead by four.
52 min Mags D'Arcy has been excellent today. She's claims a long punt into the Wexford area and wins a free for her side.
51 min But Connolly cancels it out soon after from the middle of the field with another placed ball.
50 min O'Leary's free from distance strike a blow to the Galway revival.
49 min Mags D'Arcy blocks a shot by Therese Maher about 15 yards from goal. That was a half chance for Galway, great save by the goalkeeper.
48 min Emma Kilkelly gets a rare point from play for the Tribeswomen.
47 min I wonder if this miss could cost Wexford. Josie Dwyer picks up the loose ball on the right side of the square. With an open goal and no player impacting her effort, she slaps the ball wide. Terrible miss.
46 min Aislinn Connolly with another free for Galway from 30 metres or so.
43 min It just seems this game is ebbing away from Galway. They have no momentum and Wexford continue to add to the scoreboard.
39 min Leacy's surging run comes to an end as she is fouled. Conolly sends the free over the bar.
38 min Galway just can't make a breakthrough in the final third. They don't look like they have the quality to break down the Wexford defence.
37 min Katrina Parrock with a good score for the Model County, that puts her side six-points ahead now.
35 min Connolly hits the 45 over. They're still in this but from play, they don't look too dangerous. Wexford haven't had much of the ball this half though.
34 min Jessica Gill's penalty is well saved by Mags D'Arcy. The ball is knocked out for a 45 for Galway. Very disappointing, this was a massive chance for Noel Finn's team.
33 min Jessica Gill does well to hang on to the ball and she is brought down by two Wexford defenders.
PENALTY TO GALWAY
32 min Aislinn Connolly sneak a free over the bar to give Galway the first point of the half.
1636 Tara Rutledge has not re-appeared for the second half. I assume because of the injury she suffered in the first half.
1634 The second-half is about to begin.
1638 The referee brings the half to an end with Wexford well on top.
The Intermediate final did show us that a big half-time lead can quickly be eradicated but you have to say JJ Doyle's team are on course for the crown.
Half-time Wexford 1-08 Galway 0-04
30 +3 min Jacob is being given too much time as she notches her fourth point.
30 +2 min Curtin is hunted down by the Wexford defence as she tries to find space to shoot from a breaking ball. Great defensive play by the Model County.
30 min Sorry Galway. Wexford burst forward with Leacy, she finds Parrock in plenty of space on the corner of the square and slams the ball into the corner of the net. Leacy took two defenders with her, a crucial part of that goal.
GOAL - WEXFORD - KATRINA PARROCK
29 min This is a good spell for Galway and they can be quite pleased to just be three points down.
27 min Wonderful score by Orla Kilkenny as she characteristically bursts forward from midfields and drops the ball over.
25 min Wexford cancel out a Galway free as Kate Kelly gets a shot away just in time. Wexford 0-07 Galway 0-03.
23 min Ursula Jacob with the score of the day from near the touchline towards Hill 16.
22 min Parrock's shot is saved by Earner but Galway's goal is living a charmed life.
21 min Michelle O'Leary adds to Wexford's lead after Earner pushed a first shot away.
20 min Tara Delaney has made a miraculous recovery and is returning to the field.
18 min First point of the day for Jacob from a free from 35 metres.
17 min Leacy adds another point for Wexford, they're starting to take control.
16 min Kate Kelly combines with Leacy to put Wexford back in the lead.
14 min Sarah Derven's sharp marking forces Ursala Jacob to shoot under pressure and the ball goes just wide.
13 min Aislinn Connolly brings Galway level with a free.
12 min Ciara Storey is going to come on for Karen Atkinson. The 23-year-old is being stretchered from the field after a heavy knock.
10 min Galway survive a scare in the square as the wind holds up a long punt forward and Susan Earner fails to grab the ball. Eventually they get it away.
9 min Heavy rain has descended on Croke Park. Galway have yet to get going in this game and that injury blow will not help the situation.
8 min Tara Rutledge has picked up an injury after combining with her own players. Unfortunately she can't continue so Emma Kilkelly will come on.
5 min Mags D'Arcy gathers the ball after a point effort for Galway drops short. D'Arcy clear well, good bit of play by the goalkeeper.
4 min Una Leacy runs on to the ball and lofts it over the bar. The linesmen have a brief discussion before deciding to give the point.
3 min No scores yet but both teams have shown glimpses of what they can do. Stern defending by Galway has kept Wexford at bay on one or two occasions.
1 min The ball is thrown-in, with Wexford recording the first wide of the day. Jessica Gill is a late addition to the Galway team.
1600 The teams stand for the national anthem.
1556 These teams hold just five all All-Ireland finals between them. What an opportunity it is for both counties. The estimated attendance by the GAA is 20,000.
1553 This should be a great final. Wexford are favourites but Galway have been very impressive on the way to the final.
1551 President Mary McAleese is on the pitch ready to meet the two teams.
1541 Wexford: Mags D'Arcy, Claire O'Connor, Catherine O'Loughlin, Karen Atkinson, Noeleen Lambert, Mary Leacy, Aoife O'Connor, Caroline Murphy, Deirdre Codd, Kate Kelly, Una Leacy, Michelle O'Leary, Katrina Parrock, Ursula Jacob, Josie Dwyer.
1537 Galway: Susan Earner, Sandra Tannian, Sarah Dervan, Niamh Kilkenny, Regina Glynn, Ann-Marie Hayes, Theresa Manton,, Orla Kilkenny, Caroline Murray, Therese Maher, Brenda Hanney, Tara Rutledge, Jessica Gill, Veronica Curtin, Aislinn Connolly.
1525 We're now looking forward to the Senior final as Wexford take on Galway.
Full-time - Offaly 2-12 Wexford 2-10
Offaly deservedly win the Intermediate final by two points. A very entertaining second half, Offaly dug deep at the end.
Credit to Wexford for the fightback but it just wasn't to be.
Full-time - Offaly 2-12 Wexford 2-10
60 min Wexford need a goal now as Offaly, through Arlene Watkins, cement their advantage.
59 min In the final minutes with a minute of added-time promised.
57 min Very sensible choice by Emma Dunne as he opts to take a point bu the goal at her mercy. Just over two minutes left.
57 min Disappointing for Wexford as they waste a good chance to draw themselves level again.
55 min O'Connor's free makes it a one-point game.
54 min Siobhan Flannery produces a tremendous score as she leaps into the air to catch the ball and sends a huge shot over the bar. Wexford are back in trouble.
51 min Ailisa Hughes, the second half sub for Offaly, puts the Faithful back in front. Only ttheir second point in this half but the important thing is they lead once again.
48 min Quality finish by Fiona Rochford as after a prolonged battle for possession, the loose ball falls to Rochford and she somehow finds the gap to send a stinging shot into the corner of the net. Very entertaining second-half.
GOAL - WEXFORD - FIONA ROCHFORD
47 min Morkan's shot creeps wide as Offaly try to recover from this. Blistering few minutes by the Model County.
46 min O'Connor produces another fine strike to leave just a goal in it now.
44 min Very similar to Dermody's second goal, Wexford finally make the breakthrough. Rochford runs through the Offaly defence and throws the ball up before palming it into the net. Game on with 16 minutes to go. Offaly lead by four.
GOAL - WEXFORD - FIONA ROCHFORD
42 min Lisa Bolger rids some frustration of Wexford's flawed first half performance by firing the ball over the bar. Is the goal coming?
40 min Stacey Redmond's effort deflects of an Offaly hurl and goes over the bar. They're threatening, but the goal has yet to come for Karen Barnes' side.
39 min Wide from Jean Brady as Offaly's lead stays at nine points.
37 min Excellent free from Dermody to restore Offaly's advantage.
36 min Ciara O'Connor gets the first score of the second half after a minor scrap for the ball just outside the square. I thought she could have ran with it a bit more but O'Connor opted to take the point.
35 min The second half is slow to get going with Wexford intent on going for goal rather than taking points. They are building moves and trying to get as close to goal as possible, but the chances haven't fallen yet.
31 min We're underway in the second half with Wexford on the offensive straight from the off. They need a goal to spearhead a fightback.
1430 That is half-time, Offaly hold a very healthy advantage and it is very much deserved.
Halt-time - Offaly 2-07 Wexford 0-04
30 + 1 min Flannery adds another point on the stroke of half-time.
That has crushed the Wexford fightback. Dermody picks up the ball and the Wexford players allow to run towards the square and she just palms the ball into the net with ridiculous ease.
GOAL - OFFALY - ELAINE DERMODY
26 min Bolger hits another point for Wexford from a free in front of the posts. Offaly 1-06 Wexford 0-04
23 min Important score for the Faithful as Wexford were picking away at that lead. Siobhan Flannery with a point from distance. Back to a six-point game.
22 min A well-worked score with Rochford at the heart of the play. She offloads to Bolger who chooses to take the point rather than take the move any further with a goal chance still there.
20 min Good save by Kennedy as Rochford shoos for goal at the second attempt. It was straight at the Offaly goalkeeper really though.
19 min Like this one. Rochford picks the ball up on the right and sets a dipping shot over the bar. Good score.
18 min Fourth wide of the game for Wexford as Lisa Bolger's effort from close to touchline goes wide at the near post. At least they are having more of the ball, the Wexford manager Karen Barnes offers players some encouragement. They need more scores before half-time.
17 min Better from Wexford as Rochford's mazy run ends in a shoot for goal that goes just wide of the post.
16 min Finally the sizeable Wexford following have something to cheepr as Ciara O'Connor scores from a free. They really needed that.
15 min This game is quickly creeping away from Wexford as Dermody passes to Flannery and she lofts the ball between the posts.
13 min 'They are motoring' according to commentator Adrian Eames and it is hard to disagree. Dermody with another score to extend the advantage. Good score from the left side of the field about 20 metres from goal. The Wexford forwards have barely touched the ball.
12 min Wexford are reeling as Offaly go into a six-point lead. Dermody, with her back to goal, turns and fires the ball between the posts.
10 min Jean Brady was a late addition to the Offaly line-up as it looks a good decision as the 18-year-old scores her second point of the day from 30 metres. Good score.
9 min Offaly on a high now and Jean Brady scores the first point of the day.
8 min Bad mistake from Wexford goalkeeper Helena Jacob as Elaine Dermody's point effort drops short and Jacob misjudges the ball and palms it into the net.
GOAL - OFFALY - ELAINE DERMODY
6 min First wide for the Model county from Siona Nolan. It was a shot just wide of the far post from 35 metres.
5 min Still no score yet with Offaly just about on top.
3 min Helena Jacob denies Karen Nugent an early goal by beating the forward to loose ball with the goal open.
2 min Wexford beat Offaly in the Division 2 final last year but the 2009 Intermediate champions will be hopeful of causing an upset.
1 min Both teams getting a feel for the game with plenty of lost possession. No scores as of yet.
1400 We're underway in Croke Park, with a note-worthy breeze for this Intermediate final.
