Kearney creates Armagh first

ARMAGH native Úna Kearney becomes the first lady from the Orchard county to take charge of a senior All-Ireland Camogie final when she takes charge of the meeting of Cork and Tipperary on September 19.

Kearney, a primary teacher at St Catherines in Armagh, previously took charge of the 2002 Junior All-Ireland final.

Meanwhile, the junior All-Ireland final between Cork and Down will be refereed by former Dublin senior star Aileen Lawlor, who now resides in Westmeath. Aileen was in charge of the senior final in 2002.

This year’s camogie deciders will be all-ticket. Tickets are now available to purchase online from gaa.ie and tickets@gaa.ie.

Tickets will be on sale at the Croke Park Ticket Office at the rear of the Cusack Stand on Sunday following the Guinness All-Ireland Hurling Final from 5.30pm to 7.00pm. Tickets will also be available from all county boards.

Tickets will be available to purchase on the day at Gills Corner (on the corner of North Circular Road and Jones Road) and The Bishop’s Palace, Drumcondra Road.

The Irish Handball Council and Coca-Cola have announced a new sponsorship agreement.

The new Coca Cola “Play It” initiative offers football and hurling fans the first ever opportunity to play at Croke Park on All-Ireland days.

The Croke Park Handball Centre will open up for fans from 12 noon to 2.30pm on All-Ireland FInal days for those wishing to try their hand at the game.

The deal will also see the company sponsor the 2004 All-Ireland 60 x 30 Handball Championship Finals on Saturday 11 and September 25.
