NA PIARSAIGH G.A.A. CLUB NEWS: Pride of place this week goes to our victorious Intermediate camogie team, who annexed the League crown on Saturday evening. Playing against Murroe Boher in Pairc Drumguil, we began well and ace centre back Katie Campbell had us in front early. Sinead McNamara at centre field was dominating and added a point, along with Jane Kirwan, to leave the half time score at Na Piarsaigh 0-04 to Murroe Boher 0-00. The second half hailed some excellent play from the girls, with scores coming from Aoife Wilson, Sinead McNamara, Aoife Doyle and Gemma Healy raising the green flag to all but seal the victory. There were excellent displays all over the field from this young team and the future looks bright for them, if they stick together and work hard.
