Trinity Camogie team claimed the Fr. Meaghair Cup with a win over UCD at Waterford IT Arena, capping off a hugely impressive season with a 0-13 to 0-08 victory over their rivals.
A dozen points from Trinity Sport Scholar and Limerick Camogie star Laura Stack who solidified TCD’s 0-13 to 0-8 triumph over UCD’s second team in the UPMC Fr Meaghair Cup Final. Stack, who plays her club Camogie with Cork outfit Milford and scored a goal as a 16-year-old in the 2016 All-Ireland Senior Club decider, was ruthless in her punishment of UCD transgressions, making light work of the blustery conditions with her pure striking from placed balls.
Tullogher Rosbercon and Kilkenny underage star Aimee Hanrahan was a constant threat for UCD, the first-year student landing two points and forcing an excellent save from Claire McNamara (Doon/Limerick) but Stack always kept Trinity at arm’s length.
Trinity co-captain Juliette O’ Flynn commented on the win, “Massive thanks has to go to our managers Shane and Ailbhe Noonan for all the work they’ve put into our team over the last three years, it would not have been possible without them.”
O’Flynn said the side are, “We are so happy since we had lost [last year]! Heather and I couldn’t be prouder of every single girl as every one of them but their body on the line and played as though it was their last match. What a performance from Laura Stack, who won the man of the match award for an unbelievable performance for her free taking.”
The victory means that Trinity will now move up a division and play in the Purcell Cup championship next season.
