Indoor Hurling & Camogie, OMAGH: Heat 3

17th Jan 2019


 ‘Indoor Hurling & Camogie’ Heat 3: OMAGH



Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Thír Eoghain continued their eagerly awaited series of games for 2019, when the first of two Omagh-based ‘Indoor Hurling and Camogie’ Heats took place on Thursday 17 January in Omagh Station Centre.

The Camogie section was impacted, somewhat, by the unfortunate withdrawal of some schools – due to unforeseen circumstances. However, this didn’t deter St. Ronan’s P.S. Recarson and Our Lady of Lourdes P.S. Greencastle who both did just about enough to see-off a talented Tattysallagh team from All Saints’ P.S. The former two schools played wonderful camogie to book their deserved places in the Indoor Camogie County Final. Well done, girls!

 Five schools competed in a drama-packed Hurling round-robin section. The lads from Tattysallagh and Greencastle battled bravely in the competition but fell just short on the day despite their valiant efforts. St. Ronan’s P.S. Recarson romped home with an impressive 100% record to secure a place in the Tyrone Indoor Hurling Co.  Final. Things would go the final match to determine what other school would qualify for a coveted place in the Tyrone Co. Final. Ultimately, only 1 goal would separate a gallant St. Brigid’s P.S. Altamuskin and the eventual victors Gaelscoil na gCrann. Therefore, it is Recarson and Gaelscoil na gCrann who now await the qualifying schools from further heats to be held in Omagh, Clonoe and Dungannon this week.

Tyrone Hurling & Camogie Officer Ryan Keenan – ably assisted by Anne Daly (GDA), expertly officiated on the day. Our thanks also to the friendly staff in the Station Centre, Omagh.

A great day was had by all.
