St Angela’s Ursuline are celebrating their second All-Ireland camogie title this as the junior side defeated St Mary’s New Ross on a scoreline of 1-5 to 0-7 in their final replay at the WIT Arena this afternoon.
Captain and player-of-the-match Abby Flynn netted ten minutes from time to hand the Waterford school a dramatic victory.
Ursuline trainer Emilie Darmody said that it took a huge second half effort to get over the line, considering her side trailed at half time.
“We were under pressure in the first half, we were against the wind” she said, “but we knew once we stayed with them we had a chance. They went in two points ahead at half time.”
“I felt whoever would get the goal would be a big factor… and it fell to the right woman at the right time,” referencing captain and special talent Abby Flynn.
“She’s an absolute wizard, I’m just in awe of her. She has everything, the skills, the flair and she’s and team player.”
