All Ireland champions: John the Baptist Community School Hospital

JOHN the Baptist Community School Hospital were once again crowned All Ireland camogie champions this Tuesday.

The south Limerick secondary school beat Loreto of Mullingar, 2-10 to 2-7, in Ballykelly, Co Kildare in the All Ireland Post Primary School Senior C Camogie Final.

The title win came one year to the day since the Hospital school were 3-10 to 1-8 winners over Trim in the All Ireland Senior D Camogie Final.

John the Baptist have made the step up in grade with some style this season.

Managed by teachers Helen Clifford and Sean Ryan, the Limerick side were 1-6 to 2-2 ahead at half time with Ashling Ryan getting the goal.
