Birth of a rivalry

This and subsequent finals between the two counties was a high point in a period of rapid growth in the popularity of the sport of camogie which quadrupled the average attendance at its finals in a ten-year period. “It was unquestionably a day on which the profile of the game soared and many players produced moments of individual brilliance.,” Pat Roche wrote in the Irish Times. [2]

Early rounds

Cork beat Kilkenny by 2-10 to 1-12 in the quarter-finals, Tipperary beat Clare 4-15 to 0-5, Galway beat Limerick 4-13 to 1-8 and Wexford beat Dublin 4-12 to 0-6. Cork easily defeated Wexford keeping them scoreless until just before the half-time whistle, in the semi-final. A goal by Noelle Kennedy proved to be the turning point of the second semi-final in which Tipperary beat Galway 2-11 to 1-8.

Final

Unusually Tipperary were favourites for the final. [3] By the 17th minute they led by 2-4 to 0-2. Deirdre Hughes was quickly on to a sideline cut by Emily Hayden before netting off a post for the opening goal after four minutes. Within two minutes she palmed the ball to the Cork net to finish off an astute centre from the 14-year-old Claire Grogan. Cork's goal in reply came too late from Una O'Donoghue.

Deirdre Hughes is a former camogie player selected on the camogie team of the century in 2004, and winner of All Ireland medals in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2004.

Emily Hayden is a former camogie player, captain of the All Ireland Camogie Championship winning team in 2001.

Claire Grogan is a camogie player, winner of three All-Star awards in 2004, 2005 and 2007 and a Lynchpin award, predecessor of the All Star awards, in 2003. She was short-listed for further All-Star awards in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2009.
