Old rivals meet again

Roscommon Senior Camogie Final: Four Roads v Athleague (Saturday in Athleague at 2.30 pm) While much attention is naturally focussed on the replay of the County Senior Hurling final this weekend, the Senior Camogie final also takes place.    This is a repeat of last year’s final which was won by Athleague and both these sides have proven to be the two strongest in the county over recent seasons and there should be a tight contest when they meet again on Saturday in Athleague.   The Four Roads manager this year is Adrian Tully and they have plenty of experienced players at their disposal.    Players like Mary Grehan, Patricia Lennon, Gertie Dowd, Donna Kelly and Siobhan Coyle are excellent performers and Four Roads will be hard to beat.   Athleague also boast many excellent players. Annette McGeeney will again be Athleague’s main inspiration while other to watch out for on Athleague’s team are Kelly Hopkins, Niamh Mulhern and Ciara Moran. The Athleague team manager this year is  Ann Connell.   There is very little between these two teams and if past games are anything to go by then there might even be another draw before the isssue is settled. However Athleague as the defending champions might just be a little stronger over the field and they get the nod to take another title in what should be a very tight battle. Prediction: Athleague.   Oran in Connacht   Junior Final   Oran are playing Turloughmore in the Connacht Junior club final on Sunday at 3 pm in Rockfield. Oran are the Roscommon junior champions and Turloughmore defeated Mullagh in the Galway County final recenty.    Oran will be looking to players such as Claire Curley, Clodagh Rogers and Catriona Regan and Emer Farrell while Turloughmore have stars in players like Laura and Aisling O’Brien and Deirdre Fahy.
