Brilliant result for Kerry Camogie Seniors, Ian Brick and his management team, they defeated Tipperary by 3-10 to 0-11 in the Littlewoods Camogie Intermediate League Division 2 Group 2, Round 3 on Saturday 29th May in Dromg aa, Ragg, Thurles.
The goals came from Caoimhe Spillane, Jackie Horgan and Edel Slattery who replaced Sarah Murphy.

The scoreline at halftime read Kerry 2-03 Tipperary 0-06, Edel Slattery then made it 3-05 to 0-07, at the second water break Kerry led 3-08 to 0-10. It was to be a crucial day for the Kingdom as they secured their Div. 2 status with some comfort.
Final score on a great day for Camogie Kerry 3-10 Tipperary 0-11.
The Crotta Hurling club was represented by Aoife Behan (wing back) and Jackie Horgan (Centre Forward)   1-4, (0-1f) and Amy O’Sullivan, Crotta who came on in the 2nd half.

Have you got any unused Hurlies around your home? Wouldn’t it be great if they could be put to good use again?
Crotta GAA would love it if you could have a Hurley hunt and if any are found please consider passing them on to Crotta’s future stars. All you need to do is pass them to your coach at your next training session or any club officer and we will do the rest. We will carry out any repairs that may be needed, regrip them and pass them onto a player who will get hours and hours of fun and enjoyment from the gift you have given them.
Thank you in advance.
