Presentation Thurles have forged ahead with a camogie project that has seen them rise from Munster C to the top of the A competition in just three years.
In defeating St Mary’s, Nenagh, in the provincial A final at the weekend they claimed their second senior title since winning the 2010 All-Ireland C competition.
With players from Thurles, Moycarkey-Borris, Clonoulty and Kilkenny they are a formidable outfit and following their 3-10 to 1-3 victory over their Nenagh rivals they can now target an All-Ireland.
“There has been a lot of effort gone in and the girls have been training at lunchtimes in the gym to get themselves ready for this,” said teacher Margaret O’Dwyer.
“We have 11 or 12 leaving this year so it is a big year for them.”
All-Ireland camogie champions Wexford will line out against Oulart-the-Ballagh this weekend in aid of the Make-A-Wish foundation.
The match will be held this Sunday at St Mary’s in Rosslare with admission only €5 with all money going to the charity.
“We would encourage as many people as possible to support this and help grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses,” Susan O’Dwyer, chief executive, Make-A-Wish Ireland.
