The All-Ireland camogie final was a battle and a half. It was a battle of philosophies, a battle of styles, a battle between old school and new departure, between Brian Dowling and Davy Fitzgerald, perhaps even between camogie and hurling.

Kilkenny’s victory was founded on traditional last-ditch sang-froid, on newly imbued grit and on a magnificent performance by Miriam Walsh.
