This year the Dublin senior camogie have made a big effort to get up to the standard of the top teams. In their group they lost to Kilkenny by 10 points, they lost to Tipperary by one point, they drew with Clare and defeated Derry by four points. So they finished their group with three points and may be joined by Clare on three points if they defeat Derry on Sunday next. So Dublin and Clare are fighting for one spot in the All-Ireland quarter-final. It would be massive progress for Dublin to be in the quarter final. Even though they have a much better score difference than Clare the powers that be have decided that the quarter final slot will be filled on a coin toss. This is a very shabby way to treat the members of the Clare and Dublin teams. It devalues the competition and even the winners of the toss will not feel happy about the process. There has been a massive negative reaction to the decision of the Camogie Ard Comhairle and it is definitely an own goal in relation to the promotion of camogie. Our sympathy to the girls of Clare and Dublin.
