Colaiste Phobal Ros Cre Camogie


Thursday, November 19th saw the senior ladies of Colaiste Phobal Ros Cre travel to Moneygall to take on Colaiste Mhuire of Ennis in a senior quarter final. This was going to be a hard fought battle on a number of levels. Colaiste Mhuire had beaten the Roscrea ladies last year in a Junior Championship match so we knew this opposition were tough. At stake also was a place in the Munster Semi Final.

From the start it was a very close encounter with both teams fighting for every ball. The Half time score saw colaiste phobal Ros Cre ahead on a score line of 1-2 to 0-3.

There was a flurry of goals in the second half but it was sheer heart and determination that saw the Roscrea ladies get over the line. Final score: Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré 3-7, Colaiste Mhuire, Ennis 3-3.

This win now secures a place in the Senior D Semi Final against Desmond College/carrignavar in the coming weeks.

Our junior team has also secured a semi-final spot in the Sr. Patricia Cup.

Training is going very well under the guidance and expertise of Mr. Aidan Franks who has come on board as Trainer/Coach this year. The girls and management team are putting in a huge effort to ensure the progression of Camogie in Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré.
