Anne shows classy side'

IT was a golden moment that lit up the county final . . . and the season.

The big Boden-Vincent's blockbuster senior championship final was almost on the dot of half-time.

Boden won a line-ball on the left in front of the stand. Anne Griffin arrowed the sliotar straight into Friar Tuck's cat flap.

Over the tannoy came Gerry O'Sullivan. "Folks, we have just seen a bit of history there. That's the first two-pointed sideline at senior level in Dublin camogie."

The stadium burst into applause. And the feat couldn't have happened to a neater stick-smith.

Anne has been at the heart of the Boden effort for many years now. She always carries craft and consistency in the kit bag. She was brilliantly accurate from the frees in a tight contest against Vincent's. She showed a steady eye and the temperament of a Henry Shefflin.

Anne made a generous contribution to Boden as they completed the three-in-a-row, and now she'll be sharpening the bow for the Leinster final.

All season, she has been slotting them over from all kinds of angles and distances.

And she picked the perfect day to deliver the golden shot.
