2019 Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship – Tipperary 0-15 Meath 0-11
Tipperary defeated Meath by 0-15 to 0-11 in the Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship on Saturday July 20th at Donaghmore Ashbourne.
In Group 2 Tipperary made seven changes from their regular side but Meath put them under so much pressure that Niamh Lillis had to introduce some of their experienced players to eke out a 0-15 to 0-11 win at Donaghmore Ashbourne.
The home team excelled in the first half and that laid the platform as they led by 0-11 to 0-10 in the closing stages, thanks to the contributions of Jane Dolan, Kristina Troy and Megan Thynne. Tipp scored the last five points however, Nicole Walsh marking an eye-catching return from injury to give them the lead in the 58th minute, and scores from Miriam Campion, Cáit Devane and Grace O’Brien in injury time put a very flattering look on the scoreline.
The winners move into the Quarter-Finals but given their obvious improvement and increased competitiveness this summer, Meath will go into their relegation play-off against either Wexford or Offaly with optimism.
