The University of Limerick made it five on the bounce yesterday when they claimed the Ashbourne Cup at the expense of UCC in WIT.
UL’s five consecutive victories in the premier third-level camogie competition have all come at the expense of the Cork college.
UL ran out comfortable 3-14 to 0-12 winners in WIT with Beth Carton, Ciardha McGrath and Siobhán McGrath raising green flags for the Limerick college.
While they were comprehensive in the final, UL did have to work extremely hard to get the final after trailing WIT by 1-5 to 0-0 in their semi-final on Saturday afternoon.
However, a powerful second-half performance in the second half gave UL the perfect platform to clinch the Ashbourne once again.
Limerick stars Marion Quaid, Roisin Ambrose, Sophie O’Callaghan and Caoimhe Lyons all started the final while Dearbhla Egan and Rebecca Delee were also part of the panel.
For Lyons it was an astonishing college camogie career as she collected a fourth Ashbourne cup medal.
Earlier today we caught up with UL manager Adrian O’Sullivan to get his thoughts on an epic weekend for UL GAA.
“It’s a massive deal for the club, for UL GAA. It’s a massive achievement. It hasn’t really sunk in yet but it’s great for the club and the bunch of players.”
