All-Ireland Camogie SC final
Cork 1-12 Galway 1-15 Croke Park FT

All-Ireland Camogie IC final
Antrim 2-21 Kilkenny 2-13, Croke Park FT


What a finish it was to the 2021 intercounty season. Full back and captain Sarah Dervan collects the silverware. Well done to Galway and hard luck on Cork, who were magnificent. That's all from me - thanks for reading.


Beaten finalists last December, Galway are All-Ireland senior camogie champions for the fourth time, adding to their victories of 1996, 2013 and 2019. The Rebelettes seemed to have won it when Mackey propelled them three clear with that 48th-minute goal but Cathal Murray's charges finished powerfully and McGrath's clinically-despatched goal proved crucial as were those Orlaith McGrath points at the death. The winners outscored Cork by 1-4 to 0-1 in the last twelve minutes - deserving winners of the O'Duffy Cup!

Orlaith McGrath again from distance after tremendous play by Kilkenny! Superb stuff. And the final whistle sounds! Galway are All-Ireland champions and boy did they have to fight for it. What a sensational game of camogie that was!


All-Ireland Camogie SC final: Cork 1-12 Galway 1-14

Full forward Orlaith McGrath finds space and sends her shot high over the bar at the Davin End!


Narrowly wide from O'Reilly. We are in the first of three minutes of stoppage time and one point separates these two great teams...


All-Ireland Camogie SC final: Cork 1-12 Galway 1-13

Stunning Cork move culminates in a Cronin bullet over the bar. More players go down as we move into the last 90 seconds of a memorable match...


This really has been an unbelievable contest. Galway by two with two minutes left. We pause as there are players down all over the field...



What a goal for Galway! Siobhan McGrath takes the pass from O'Reilly and calmly slots her shot to the bottom right corner - 1-13 to 1-11! Four minutes left...



Narrowly wide off the stick of Kilkenny with five minutes to go and still one point between the sides....

Ailish O'Reilly takes over the free-taking duties and nails a terrific one at the Davin End from close to the Hogan Stand sideline.

Yellow card for Meabh Cahalane. Dolan strokes over the free and is then substituted. Nine minutes left.



Mackey gathers the handpass from Collins and drives an unstoppable shot to the roof of the Galway net - 1-11 to 0-11 and that was coming!


All-Ireland Camogie SC final: Cork 0-11 Galway 0-11

On the run, Cronin drops over the leveller with 13 minutes left. Cork tails are up now. They are winning all the 50:50 balls.


Fourteen huge minutes coming up in this epic All-Ireland camogie final...


All-Ireland Camogie SC final: Cork 0-10 Galway 0-11

Dolan calmly arrows over a 40-metre free to double the gap. Cronin is taken out by Siobhan Gardiner (yellow card) at the other end and the No.26 gets up to convert the free herself. One it it at the second water break.



Looney gets back to block down Dolan's goal effort; wide from Collins at the other end. Tense is not the word...


All-Ireland Camogie SC final: Cork 0-9 Galway 0-10

O'Connor is dragged down by Healy (yellow card) and, from the resultant free, Cronin taps over the Rebelettes' first point of the second half with 42 minutes played.



Shauna Healy gets back to deny the dangerous O'Connor this time. Is Cork's physicality starting to tell? We are in the 41st minute and have still seen only one score since the restart...


Hearts in mouths

Absolutely frenetic exchanges here in the eight minutes since the restart. End-to-end stuff with every possession keenly contested. Almost a Cork goal but O'Connor's effort is narrowly off target.


Super sub

Cork introduce their captain Linda Collins for Ciara O'Sullivan.
