Páraic McMahon reports from the University of Limerick
Mary Immaculate College picked up their first win of this 2018 campaign overcoming a obstinate Trinity College.
It was a far from ideal Mary I exhibit. Their frustration with the Trinity obstacle was evident with complaints amongst mates over the supply of concession and ball of objects.
Goals from the Corry cousins, Brian and Michael plus a flag out of Newtownshandrum’s rsquo & Tim O.
Former Dublin Camogie boss, Shane O’Neill had been in charge of Trinity along with his ensemble were led.
Having dropped all six of the defenders from last year, Mary I’d look shaky in Trinity along with the rear’s aims might have been easily averted. The defence and the twelve wides front will be the two areas of concern for the holders.
When Cian Lynch started to discover his groove which Mary I started to dominate put to the pin of the collar for the opening half it was just.
It’s a winner takes all game for Mary I when they sponsor NUIG on February 1st, Jamie Wall will be confident of having Limerick’s Aaron Gillane back to full fitness for this tie. Worryingly for him, Clare panellist, Gary Cooney was carried off the field in the first half.
Trinity on the other hand will end off their campaign welcoming IT Carlow to the funding.
