Munster Senior Camogie Championship Semi-Final

 

Tipperary 2-23

Waterford 1-8

 

Report: Thomas Conway at The Ragg

 

Tipperary served up an impressive performance in defeating Waterford by eighteen points to set up a Munster Senior Camogie Final showdown with All-Ireland champions Cork.

It was one of those glorious sun-drenched Saturday evenings in the Ragg. Notch the temperature up ten or fifteen degrees and the pitch could have been somewhere on Australia’s Gold Coast, Brisbane perhaps – where Tipp forward Orla O’Dwyer will be kicking footie next Winter and Spring (or Summer and Autumn, depending on which way you look at it). The 20 year-old Cashel dual-star was announced as Brisbane Lions’ newest recruit on Friday morning, the eighth Irish woman to sign an AFLW contract for the 2020 season, but the first to join the Queensland club.

As fantastic a distraction as that was, the focus was uninterrupted. Rather, it seemed to have a positive effect on the performance of O’Dwyer and her teammates, as Tipp swept past Waterford in the early stages, working up an eight point lead by the 11th minute, 1-6 to 0-1. O’Dwyer herself opened the scoring, and contributed four more masterly points before the half was out.
