Camogie Irish stick-and-ball team sport played by women

Camogie is played by 100,000 women in Ireland and worldwide, largely among Irish communities. It is organised by the Dublin-based Camogie Association or An Cumann Camógaíochta. UNESCO lists Camogie as an element of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Structure

The championship was entered by 16 counties, up from 10 in 1932. Kildare qualified for the semi-final for the only time in their history, but found themselves 3–0 to nil down at half time and scoring a late goal through Polly Smith of Newbridge St Theresa's. The decision to name the inter-county cup the O'Duffy Cup after Sean O'Duffy was made at a Central Council meeting on August 19, 1933.

Frances Sutah (Polly) Smith was an important Texas photographer whose work showcased Texas life to the world during the 1930s-1940s. Though not as critically acclaimed as contemporaries Margaret Bourke-White or Dorothea Lange, her work broke new ground in Texas.

The O'Duffy Cup is the prize presented to the winners of the All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.

Final

Dillon Bowden scored the first point in the final as Ita McNeill and Jean Hannon shared seven goals between them in the Dublin attack. The Dublin midfield trio of Mollie Gill, Máire O'Kelly and Emmy Delaney dictated the final. Galway stayed in the match until half-time but were swept away in the second period. Monica Duggan, sister of hurling star, Jimmy Duggan played for Galway in the final. [7]

Emily ‘Emmie’ Delany is a former camogie player. She played for University College Dublin (UCD) and was captain of the All Ireland Camogie Championship winning team in 1938 when she scored the fifth of Dublin's five goals in their 5-0 to 2-3 victory over Cork. Some sources reference her under the name "Emma Emmy Delaney" although her given name was Emily and her family name was Delany with no "e". She won a previous All Ireland senior medal in 1937.

James Duggan was an Irish hurler who played as a right wing-forward for the Galway senior team.
