Amy and Hannah help Cork secure All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship

9 Sep 2017

Two Quercus Sports' Scholars, Amy O'Connor and Hannah Looney, helped Cork to win the nail-biting final of the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship against Kilkenny.

Both scholars played out of their socks on the day with Amy scoring 2 points in the opening minutes of the first half. Cork gained victory by a single sweet point and the final few minutes could not have been more tense. Well done to the entire team for holding their nerves while we were all losing ours! 

The Sunday Game went on to name Amy as no.13 on the 2017 Camogie Team of the Year.

Amy, who also plays soccer, studies Pharmacy and Hannah, who also plays ladies football, studies Process and Chemical Engineering.
