Despite having to field with just the bare 15 starting players in a resplendent Templetuohy last Sunday afternoon, Clanmaurice came within a puck of the ball of holding on to their hard-earned All-Ireland junior camogie silverware, but it was the 2019 runners-up, Raharney from Westmeath, who gained sweet revenge for their defeat in the last final of the competition, which was played a few months before Covid came to disrupt not only sport, but all aspects of life in general.

The midlanders are worthy champions, and Clanmaurice manager Mike Enright sportingly acknowledged this at the end of what was a titanic struggle, but it could so easily have been green and black ribbons again on the Fil Mhic Giolla Bhríde Cup at 3.30pm last Sunday in the Moyne/Templetuohy grounds.
