Galway enjoyed a perfect start to the defence of the National Camogie League with a comprehensive 3-7 to 0-5 win over Tipperary at The Ragg.
In division one's group one, Tipperary had no answer to Galway, who grabbed a 13th minute goal through Aoife Donohue, while Aoife Callanan bagged a second to put her side into a 2-7 to 0-0 half-time lead.
Callanan registered her second major three minutes after the restart. The only concern for Galway is they failed to score again.
Claregalway victory at Páidí Ó Sé tournament
Claregalway Ladies flew the Galway flag high at last weekend’s 27th Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé. In the five-team senior ladies competition, the 2013 All Ireland intermediate club champions Claregalway made a blistering start, emphatically beating local side Corca Dhuibhne by 9-6 to 1-03. Confey of Kildare also lost to Claregalway's superior forwards, led by captain Clodagh Cooney, with the match ending 1-11 to 1-0. In the final, Claregalway, playing with the aid of a strong wind in the first half, built up a 5-6 to 1-1 lead. South Kerry’s Southern Gaels found scores hard to come by with Claregalway's fullback Amy Rohan, Hannah Coen in goal, and Fabienne Cooney marshalling any threats with ease. Nor could the locals manage Galway county star Megan Glynn at corner forward, who amassed a personal tally of 4-2 and was later crowned player of the tournament. The Galway side proved far too strong, winning by 8-10 to 2-3.
