Great night for Inniscarra club as the Glen also celebrate minor success

IT was a night of great celebration for Inniscarra GAA as club legend Rena Buckley brought the O'Duffy Cup back to Leeside, while their minor hurlers captured a county title.

There was also great joy for Glen Rovers, with their minors landing the Premier 1 hurling trophy, offering the club faithful a massive pick-me-up following their seniors' defeat to Na Piarsaigh over the weekend.

The victorious Rebel camogie team arrived back to Cork to a great reception after their stunning one-point win over Kilkenny on Sunday. After a stop in Mallow, Paudie Murray's squad were hailed as heroes at a homecoming on the South Mall, before adjourning to Inniscarra, home of Rena Buckley.

After securing her 18th senior All-Ireland by beating the Cats, Buckley was the deserved centre of attention from the Cork fans in The Imperial Hotel last night. Gemma O'Connor and Julia White also soaked up the cheers from the royal camogie faithful, with the gutsy nature of the victory a source of huge pride for all involved.

For Inniscarra's young hurlers, their Premier 2 minor final win over Blackrock was the culmination of years of hard work and a reflection of the effort going in across the board underage in their club.

The Glen were underdogs in the Premier 1 showdown with Midleton, who had beaten them by 10 points in the first round. However after already beating Sars and Douglas they hit the ground running against the Magpies to upset the odds.
