While it was a hugely disappointing day for Camross hurlers in Portlaoise on Sunday it was a great day for Camross Macra members in the stock judging. In first place in Beef was Alan Delaney and in first place in sheep judging was Susie Manson and in the senior beef John Mortimer was just pipped for first place and settled for silver. A great start to the judging season and Macra are grateful to Paul Delaney for hosting the event.
Sunday week was a bitterly disappointing day for Camross senior hurlers the reigning champions surrendered their championship crown and were no match for Rathdowney-Errill who also defeated them in the final four years ago. There was better luck for the junior hurlers on Saturday on the eve of the County final they travelled to Abbeyleix and defeated a strong Castletown-Sl-Bloom team in the semi-final. The junior final against near neighbours Kyle is scheduled to take place in O’Moore Park on Sunday next October 12th throwing in at two o’clock. It is exactly one hundred years since Camross won their first junior hurling championship and David Mortimer captains this year’s team. This will be the sides’ fifth meeting in this year’s championship. The U21 team was due to play champions Borris-Kilcotton in the opening round at Slieve Bloom on Sunday morning.
Camross and O’Moores contested the Laois Camogie final at Raheen on Sunday last with Camross seeking their third title in a row.
Late Liam Walsh
Sympathy is extended to Fr Donal Walsh Borris-in-Ossory and former CC Camross on the death of his brother Liam (Red Liamy) who passed away on September 30th Graiguenamanagh County Carlow.
Liamy was an outstanding hurler with Carlow and captained them to the All-Ireland junior final of 1962 later helped them win the All-Ireland intermediate championship. The highlight of his sporting career came about in 1966 when he was selected on the Leinster Railway cup team at right half forward alongside the Kilkenny pair of Tom Forrestall and Eddie Keher. He became the first Carlow hurler ever to play with Leinster when he lined out against Connacht in 1961. Chief mourners are his wife Nodlaig sons John, Raymond, William daughters Marguerite, Mary Rose, Jacqueline, Hillary, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, partners, grandchildren, Lauren, Summer Rose, Conor and Ryan, sisters Mary, Eva, Claire, Brothers Fr Donal, Colm, Brendan brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, Nieces, Nephews relations and friends.
