Therese Maher, Veronica Curtin, Sharon Glynn, Niamh Kilkenny,

The second round of twitter voting concluded in the early hours of Wednesday morning (30th May) in our competition to select ‘Galway’s Greatest Camogie Player’ and the 56 still standing were reduced to just 16 players. 

For the second time in succession, Therese Maher topped the poll with a whopping 89%.  Five-time All-Star Niamh Kilkenny moved to second on 69% followed by Sharon Glynn (54%) and Veronica Curtin (46%).

The top player from each of the 14 quarter-final polls qualified for the semi-finals along with the two best runners-up.  Rebecca Hennelly was the top runner-up on 36% and remains in the competition.

As mentioned before, the adjudication committee would make any decisions regarding ties and they were called upon to make one decision.

There were three runners-up on 35% with only one spot available.  They sided with Sarah Dervan ahead of Aoife Donohue and Ann Marie Starr.

The semi-finals, which start this morning (Wednesday) will see the remaining participants in four groups of four.  Only the winners advance to Thursday’s final.

Some big names to depart after the quarter-finals included Donohue, Starr, Niamh McGrath (who was in the top four after Round One), Sinead Cahalan, Jessica Gill and 1996 winning captain Imelda Hobbins.

The semi-final pairings will appear below shortly after the quarter-final results and the polls will stay open for 15 hours.  The FINAL takes place on Thursday.
