2020 Munster Junior Camogie Club Final

Clanmaurice complete four in a row Munster Titles
Clanmaurice (Kerry) 2-6 Feakle-Killanena (Clare) 0-9
Clanmaurice continued their winning ways as they covered themselves in glory at Mallow GAA Grounds on Saturday with hard fought victory against a very well-oiled Feakle-Killanena side in this much delayed 2020 Munster Junior Club Championship final.
This completed a magnificent four in a row for these Clanmaurice heroines and what a performance considering the girls have not played a competitive game since their All-Ireland exit playing with Kerry on August 21st because there are no adult club leagues or championships in Kerry. Clanmaurice led by 2-1 to 0-6 at half time.
Captain Elaine Ryall lifted the Clare O’Herlihy Memorial Cup to the delight of the squad and supporters. Player of the match went to Niamh Leen of Clanmaurice.
Congratulations to the Clanmaurice players and their backroom team, especially the Crotta players Aoife Behan Centre Forward and Jackie Hogan  Full Forward (0-5,1free).
