GALWAY CAMOGIE: 2018 Galway Daily Senior Player Semi-Finals


The opening round of our 2018 Galway Daily Senior Camogie Player of the Year competition closed last night (Monday) as the 20 contenders were whittled down to 12 players. 

Caitriona Cormican topped the poll with 73% followed by Niamh Kilkenny (63%), Sarah Dervan (58%), Aoife Donohue (42%) and Carrie Dolan (42%).

The top two from each of the five groups advanced to the next round along with the two best third placed players (Tara Kenny – 19%, Niamh McGrath – 18%).

Some of those unfortunate to be eliminated included Niamh Hanniffy, Shauna Healy, Roisin Black and Noreen Coen.

The semi-finalists will take part today (Tuesday) in four groups containing three players each.  The winners from each group will qualify for Wednesday’s final.

Any ties will be decided by our adjudication panel.  All you need to do is log into (and like) our twitter page and like your favourite player in each section each day.  It’s that simple.  Each poll will last for 15 hours.
