Galway in camogie cruise control

Niamh Kilkenny breaks through.

THE threat to Galway’s 13-year record of reaching the All-Ireland senior camogie semi-finals never materialised from Dublin on Saturday as Cathal Murray’s charges calmly outscored their opponents.

With eight different contributors from play, the Tribeswomen survived early goal threats and stamped their authority on the contest, keeping the Leinster outfit waiting 37 minutes for a score from play.

After their poor display against Kilkenny two weeks previously, Galway focused on getting the job done with minimum fuss and were afforded the chance to give panellists game time late on.

Dublin, history makers and the top story of 2017, completely underperformed as they gambled on goals in the opening quarter. Galway’s stern full back line of Shauna Healy, Sarah Dervan and Tara Kenny were uncompromising and allowed their team-mates do the damage the other end.
