GAA: Antrim on hunt for success

Antrim, having collected the Ulster Minor B camogie title, are now looking to achieve more success only this time at a higher level.



The Saffrons recent victory over great rivals Down at Pairc Esler Newry has fired the belief that more silverware can be attained and a massive step in this direction can be taken on Sunday when they will face either Clare or Galway in the All Ireland A semi-final.

Antrim officials and players are aware that they will need to improve even further on the form they showed against Down if they are to make the All Ireland decider. Gemma McCann, spokesperson for the Antrim side, believes that their spirit and work ethic will prove crucial in their last four meeting.

"The girls are working very hard for each other. We knew we had to turn in a big performance against Down who had beaten us previously and thankfully we landed the Ulster title.

"But now we will be under much more pressure," says Creggan club member Gemma.

Sinead Laverty, Rachelle Macari, Briannan McDonnell and Roisin O'Boyle are the key players in a Saffrons team that encompasses pace and skill up front and a high level of organisation at the back.
