Galway defeated Waterford by 1-15 to 1-7 in the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie Championship Semi Final on Saturday August 24th at The Ragg.

The westerners always held the upper hand, particularly after a whirlwind start that saw them go 1-3 to 0-0 ahead after just seven minutes. Orla McGrath struck for the goal in the fifth minute, finishing a fine move, with Aoife Callanan, Aoife Donohoe and Finola Keely scoring the points. Waterford got on top in the middle third in the second quarter and were just 1-6 to 0-6 in arrears at the interval, thanks to scores from Karen Klly, Nicola Morrissey, Trish Jackman and Zoe O’Donoghue, who saw her blockbuster tipped over by Róisín Callanan from point-blank range. Galway resumed control in the second half though, despite Kelly’s goal from a 40-yard free. Points from Keely, McGrath, Dee Burke and Rebecca Hennelly saw them home.
