We are delighted to announce that after a brave battle against Scoil Mhuire of Tullamore in the Allianz Cuman na mBunscoil Camogie final our girls were crowned champions. It was a wonderful game of Camogie  played in front of a large crowd in O'Connor Park Tullamore. There were heroes all over the field on the Killeigh side and great credit goes to the girls for the effort they put in right through the match. 
Indeed today's win is only the culmination of a years hard and the girls should be very proud if themselves. Thanks also to the excellent coaching team of Ms Corcoran, Ms Kelly and Ms Dermody who had left no stone unturned preparing the girls for the big match.
We asked the pupils of Killeigh to get behind the girls on Thursday and they did this with great enthusiasm. Pupils wore Killeigh colours, made banners and shouted and chanted the girls onto victory at the match. Thanks  to everyone for their support on the day. 



We would like to thank Mary Byrne for once again supplying us with a pictorial record of the day. Her skill with a camera knows no bounds as you can see by the above images.
