Here’s a closer look at all the #StyleOfPlay action!
Cork 1-13 v Kilkenny 0-09, Walsh Park.
The Rebels played against the wind in the opening first half and looked strong throughout. They played defensively, with Sarah Harrington and Lauren Callanan both anchoring their defence on the full-back line.
Come halftime the Rebels led by a point 0-07 to 0-06.
Cork had the wind in their favour in the second half, and they took advantage of this to put some space between themselves and Kilkenny. Keeva McCarthy took three points from frees and Katelyn Hickey whacked a brilliant point from play.
Rachel O’Callaghan danced her way in through the Kilkenny defence and hand passed the sliotar into the net, to secure a goal for the Rebels. The final scoreline ended with Cork 1-13 to Kilkenny’s 0-09.

Westmeath 3-10 v Dublin 1-6, Clane GAA
Westmeath marched their way to victory over Dublin, to win their spot in the Division 2 Final. This is a significant achievement for the ladies of Westmeath, who are gradually progressing their game in Camogie.
They looked extremely dominant from the start. Pamela Greville had a huge influence over proceedings. Points came for Westmeath from Mairéad McCormack and Denise McGrath, while Greville knocked over two frees. In the 11th minute, Greville prevailed through Dublin’s defence and knocked the sliotar into the back of the net.
