THE Ulster Junior final with Cavan may be just a couple of days away but the Tyrone Camogs are still awaiting official confirmation that the decider will definitely proceed as planned.
Details of the game were originally posted last week however in recent days Tyrone officials have asked for clarity without a response, leaving players, managers and officials in limbo. A potential All-Ireland final replay between Cavan and Armagh had been pencilled in for this weekend but with the Orchard side easing to a victory there, the path seems clear for the Breffni outfit to play Tyrone this weekend.
Unfortunately, the Red Hand ladies have not been allowed to train ahead of the big match. Despite their elite status and having competed in the All-Ireland series, it appears now that as this is solely a provincial competition, they are not allowed collective training until after the circuit-breaker and clearance from Croke Park. The game had been provisionally fixed for Saturday, December 13th baring any replay and with the second lockdown coming to a close tommorow (Fri) in the north it seemed good to go.
However there has not been confirmation forthcoming despite correspondence to the Ulster body.
Tyrone were heading into the game with the Breffni side in a good place. They have lost to Cavan in the recent Nancy Murray Cup final but an All-Ireland semi-final performance against Armagh provided coach Leona Gallagher with plenty of hope.
“Tyrone Camogie is in a good place,” she beamed. “We proved there we can hurl with the best and maybe if the girls in the county could give as much to the county as they do for the club we would be even better.”
