Galway girls beat Cats in Camogie

Niamh Hanniffy powers past the Kilkenny defence.

GALWAY produced a performance fit for the occasion to dethrone four in-a-row-chasing Kilkenny and capture a first Littlewoods Ireland National League Division 1 title in four seasons at Croke Park on Sunday lunchtime.

The Tribeswomen were very impressive and well-organised throughout, and were more dominant than the two-point winning margin may suggest.

Kilkenny were pedestrian in comparison, playing second fiddle to Cathal Murray's charges for long spells and went eight points down at one stage, a lead the winners never fully relinquished.

This was Galway’s first league title since 2015 and they have been in great form throughout this campaign, easing their way to the final and outclassing Limerick at the semi-final stage.
