Beth steers the ship home

Pride of place this week goes to Donal O'Rourke and his Waterford Senior Camogie team on a terrific win over Limerick in Walsh Park on Saturday last. This All-Ireland series result sees the Deise girls into a mouth watering clash with Clare next weekend with the winner taking their place in the next series of fixtures. Indeed while a win would be a huge filip to the girls, although a draw would also see the Deise into the quarter finals for the first time ever.

Waterford went into this game following a hugely impressive effort against Kilkenny knowing that although they were beaten they could certainly mix it with the best. A goal from De La Salle's Beth carton in the opening ten minutes saw the Deise ahead 1-3 to 0-2. Indeed with the de La salle player pulling the strings Waterford led 2-5 to 0-8 at the break. The second Waterford goal coming midway through the half from Dungarvan player Kaiesha Tobin.

The accuracy of the afforementioned Beth Carton continued to keep the scoreboard ticking along for Waterford although they were forced to play out the last ten minutes with fourteen players following a second bookable offence from Sibeal Harney. The final tally of 2-11 to 0-15 a just reward for the Waterford management and team who have been excellent throughout the competition with Beth Carton ending with a personal tyally of an incredible 1-10.

Incidentally Clare at home and following a huge 4-13 to 0-1 defeat to Kilkenny last weekend will be looking for a return to form but I am sure that the Waterford manager and his charges are really looking forward to it. Best of luck to all.

That so many people are waiting for treatment in one of the most developed economies in the world is truly frightening. Of course you can take into account the underfunding of the health sector during the economic downturn but it still wouldn't fully explain why so ma …
