Camross’ bid for a provincial title to put with their Laois Championship success ended in disappointment against a strong Ballyhale Shamrocks side in the Leinster Club Intermediate Camogie Final.

Camross had seen off the highly fancied Offaly champions Shinrone on their way to the decider but they couldn’t repeat those heroics last Sunday in Nowlan Park against the Kilkenny champions.

In the end it was two second-half goals from Ballyhale that decided the game and Camross were left to wonder what might have been had they taken their scores when they were very much on top in the first-half.

Meanwhile this weekend the Laois Ladies Football Senior Champions Sarsfields continue their marathon journey to what they hope could be an All Ireland appearance.

After a game away to London champions Parnell’s in the quarter-final, they now face a 135 mile journey to Ballintubber in Mayo to face Connaught champions Carnacon who recently won their eighth provincial title in a row defeating Galway champions Kilkerrin-Clonberne.
