Inspired Waterford retain title


Camogie:WATERFORD IT retained the Ashbourne Cup yesterday, beating UCC, 0-11 to 1-6, in the final at Cork IT.

Inspired by good performances from their captain, Wexford star Ursula Jacob, Katie Power, Stacey Redmond and Katrina Parrock, WIT were efficient in most sectors while UCC suffered from an over-reliance on Cork players Orla Cotter and Denise Cronin.

Ultimately though, WIT’s better economy from scoring opportunities was what swung the game, despite Cronin scoring a brilliant goal for UCC in the 39th minute of the decider.

In the Purcell Cup decider, an early goal from Noelle Corrigan proved to be the difference as Dublin IT overcame IT Tralee on a scoreline of 1-5 to 0-5.

In the Ashbourne Shield, UL were 1-10 to 1-4 victors against CIT, while the Purcell Shield saw Queen’s University, Belfast, beat NUI Maynooth by 1-8 to 0-8.
