“It’s surreal’, said Tyrone-born Shauna McWilliams. “It’s a dream to get there.

“It feels funny to even say we’re playing for Scotland but the girls from Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh have shown that we have ability’.”

Former Cushendall and Antrim camogie player Bronagh Heggarty only took up football in Scotland and described the semi-final win as: “unbelievable.. a proud day for the players and our families”.
