St Killian’s Garron Tower 3-5 St Patrick’s Maghera 1-8
St Killian’s Garron Tower pulled off a huge shock yesterday in Ballymena by defeating hot favourites St Patrick’s Maghera to reach their first ever Corn Eimhear camogie final. An early goal from player of the match Sinéad Convery gave them a foothold in the game and they were level 1-2 to 0-5 at the break, with Adrienne Gorman hitting 4 of the Maghera points.
