All roads lead to Kilkenny on Bank Holiday Sunday when the Kilkenny under-14 camogie squad hold their annual blitz.
The girls are high flying this year, with the county A team wining every tournament they have competed in. The B side have made good progress and look to be in with a shout this weekend.
Two venues will host the tournaments. Dicksboro GAA club will have the A competition, while St Kieran’s College will host the B and C teams.
The A competition features teams from Kilkenny, Clare, Cork, Waterford, Wexford and Tipperary, who will battle it out for the Bernie Hoban Memorial Cup. Kilkenny will be going into the competition as reigning Leinster champions.
The B competition will also see six teams battling it out for the Intosport Castlecomer Cup. The B tournament will be made up of Kilkenny B, Down, Clare B, Tipperary B, Cork B and Offaly.
The B team have being unlucky not to register a win in four out of the five blitz finals that they competed in, but with home advantage this Sunday, the girls will be looking for a win.
The C competition will also have six teams competing for the Hennessy Sports Cup. The group is made up of Carlow, Cork C, Kildare, Laois, Wexford B and Tipperary C. This promises to be a tough group with not much to separate the sides.
There will be prizes for the Player of the Tournament in each competition, all of which have been sponsored by Kukri Sports.
The three competitions will throw-in at 10a. Thanks went to Dicksboro and St Kieran’s College for the use of their facilities for the blitz games.
A tuck shop will be at both grounds on the day. Commemorative jerseys will also be available for purchase.
The Kilkenny county board have organised what promises to be a fantastic tournament. All Kilkenny Camogie followers are urged to come out and show their support for what will be a great day of action.
