Dominican College Camogie club is having a very successful season
with both the senior and junior teams reaching the Dublin College's League
Finals. The senior team began their campaign on November 7th against
a very strong Baldoyle side who went on to beat our girls by one
goal and two points. This disappointing result made the team more determined
to change the poor start to the season and, with continued training, the
team's hardworking spirit led them to well deserved wins over Scoil Chaitríona
and Maynooth P.P..
With just two teams emerging from our group, we found ourselves on equal points with St. Mary's Baldoyle and Scoil Chaitríona and were faced with a three-way play-off battle to step into the league semi-final position. However, Domincan College overcame this obstacle with ease, beating both teams and emerged as winners of the 'Northside' group.
The team now faced its next tough encounter against the runner-up team of the 'Southside' group, Lucan C.C. This proved to be a challenging contest but nothing could beat our dedicated stronghold and the girls now march on to the final hurdle against Sancta Maria, Templogue. This will be a nail-biting final and it is difficult to predict the winning team but if team spirit, dedication and passion for the game are anything to go by, our girls will be victorious. Good luck girls!
Congratulations to the following students who have all helped Dominican
College reach the Colleges League Final:

The Dominican College junior team have had an incredible 2002/'03 season winning all their league fixtures and Round one of the Division One College's Championship so far this season. The girls' dreamlike campaign began on November 19th with an easy win over Maynooth P.P. This ultra confident skillful team continued its winning path over coming Holyfaith S.S., Manor House Raheny, St. Mary's Baldoyle and Loreto, Ballbriggan. The girls now eased into a semi-final place against Sancta Maria, Templogue and won this match to earn a place in the final against St. Mac Dara's, Templeogue. There's no doubt that this team are overwhelming favourites to win out the competition. The team's maturity, commitment, confidence and 'never give-up' attitude has strengthened continually as the season progressed and we all eagerly await the final step in the hope of gaining the league title. Good luck in the final to the following students who are part of this proud talented junior team:
