St. Mary’s High School Midleton
Winners of 2018 All-Ireland and Munster
Junior Post Primary Camogie Titles

ST. MARY’S HIGH SCHOOL MIDLETON, the 2018 Post Primary All-Ireland and Munster Junior Camogie Champions are the March 2018 winners of the Rebel Óg Monthly Awards sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs, Cummins Sports (Award Sponsors) with RedFM and The Evening Echo (Media Partners).

St. Mary’s High school follow the All-Ireland Scór winners (February) and Sam Maguires footballers who won the January 2018 Award.

St. Mary’s High School has always had a proud sporting tradition since being established in 1902. Some 40 years ago camogie was introduced in the school and since then they have achieved much success at County and Munster level in all grades. The school has also been a springboard for future intercounty camogie players with many past pupils donning the red jersey at senior intercounty level.
History was made on the 10th March 2018 when the St. Marys High School Junior team won the schools’ first ever All-Ireland camogie title with a fantastic performance over a gallant St. Cuan’s College Ballinasloe on a score line of 3.17 to 2.9.

Last season brought much heartache as many of this team lost the Munster final to the eventual winners of the competition. Spurred on by this defeat but with self-confidence from previous successes at 1st year level, the 37-strong panel began training in September to right the wrongs of 2017.

In the earlier stages of the Munster competition, St. Marys overcame Ennis and St. Augustine’s Dungarvan which set up a meeting with Cashel community college in the Munster final. St. Mary’s defeated Cashel on a scoreline of 3.13 to 2.5 and in doing so were crowned Munster champions. As winners of the Munster final, St. Marys progressed onto the All-Ireland semi-final to play Our Lady and St. Patricks College Knock, Belfast. After a tough encounter the Midleton school won out on a scoreline of 3.9 to 3.5. St. Cuan’s college Ballinasloe, having come through on the opposite side of the competition would be the opponents for the final. Both teams having put up huge scores in their respective campaigns meant that it promised to be an exciting final. St. Marys started well scoring 3 goals in quick succession in the 1st half leaving them ahead by 9 points at the short whistle. St. Cuan’s rallied in the second half but could not impact the lead St. Mary’s had built up. The final score on a historic day in the University of Limerick was 3.17 to 2.9.

This was a fantastic team performance from start to finish with every player on the team and panel working hard to achieve the common goal of bringing the first ever all Ireland camogie title to Midleton.
St. Mary’s high school would like to acknowledge the support of Midleton CBS for the use of their training facilities as well as the local GAA clubs that have generously facilitated the hosting of school matches throughout the year.
