Inter County Fixture – Weekend 20.04.2019
Reigning All Ireland Minor A Champions Cork take to the field in Carriganore, WIT on Saturday afternoon April 20th at 2pm to play Kilkenny in the 2019 All Ireland Camogie Championship Semi Final.
In 2018 the Minor A side reigned supreme when they recorded a first Cork victory at this grade since it was changed to U18 from U16 in 2006.
In 2019 the team have qualified for the semi final after they secured a second place spot in Group 2 by the narrowest of margins. The team commenced the season with an away fixture to Tipperary at The Ragg. Having come from seven points down at half time and failing to register a score in the opening half, they rallied and notched up 1-07 in the second half. However, Tipperary held out to take the spoils 0-13 to 1-07.
The next two fixtures were home games against Wexford and Dublin and the team registered two convincing wins.
The final game of the group came down to a crunch fixture away to Galway on April 13th. The fixture ended all square; 1-11 a piece and, as a result Cork took second place in the group ahead of Galway on score difference and behind table toppers Tipperary.
The team are an hour away from appearing in consecutive All Ireland Finals, however, they have to overcome an impressive Kilkenny side who topped their Group 1 with victories over Clare, Waterford, Antrim and Offaly.
