No Shame in Defeat for Queens
3rd Colleges All-Ireland League Div 2 Final
Cork IT 0-18 QUB 0-00

14th April 2004

Despite the scoreline, there was no shame in defeat for Queens against Cork IT (CIT) in this League final. While CIT were without doubt the better team, and fuller deserved their win, the 18 point winning margin was somewhat flattering with 10 of their scores coming from either frees or 45's.

Dublin Trip for Queens

In preparation for the Fr. Meagher competition in March, Queens Camogs head for Dublin next Sunday (15th Feb) for a challenge match against top metropolitan side St. Vincent's. This should prove a tough test for the Malone Road girls as St. Vincent's were Leinster Club champions just a few short years ago.

Queens Await Semi-Final Draw

With the Div 2 North title secured, Queens must now wait for the other sections to be completed to see who they will play next. What has become clear is that a favourable draw will see QUB straight into the National League Final as there are only two other Div 2 League Sections - that means just one semi-final to be played.

Teams of the calibre of Garda, IT Tralee and DCU are in the other sections which will mean tough opposition no matter who Queens end up playing.

Past Queen's Manager back in County management

Bernie McNally has returned in a management role in Down camogie after a three year break in which the county's fortunes have nose-dived. The move comes shortly after a crisis meeting was held on the future of Down camogie on the inter-county scene. The Armagh native was in charge of the Mourne county when they made the breakthrough in 1991 with the All-Ireland junior title, and she also guided them to four National League Finals and two Intermediate Championship deciders before all came together with that particular 'double' in 1998. She will have her work cut out to restore the county to that level of performance once more, but the fact that she has returned has to be a confidence booster to the game in the county at the present time.
