Girls Complete South Double

Our girls have added a camogie title to the football title won earlier this month.

In what is becoming an incredible year for the school in Cumann na mBunscol competitions, our girls team captured the South Roinn A camogie title today in Martinstown. This is the first time the school has won the Roinn A division and only its second camogie title.

The girls had three tough fixtures to negotiate on the route to the title. Against Hospital NS scores from Molly, Sinéad and Lucy helped the school get off to a confidence building start.

The second game against Kilfinane NS saw the team produce another commanding display all over the field. On the scoresheet in this game were; Molly, Lucy, Róisín and Katie.

The final game of the day was against the camogie stronghold of Galbally. Herbertstown rose to the challenge and ran out convincing winners with scores from Molly, Lucy, Róisín and Katie.

Massive congratulations to the girls on a fantastic achievement. Well done to Mr. Franklin and Ms Mann who put in a huge amount of work coaching these girls all year.

Mini 7s Camogie – South Final

Our girls were in real hard luck at the South INTO Mini 7s camogie finals were they lost narrowly in two games to Kilmallock NS and eventual winners Knocklong NS. In both games the girls performed very well and in the closing stages were only only a score away from the winners.

They can be very proud of their performances on the day and can now look forward to the 11 a side camogie in May.

Maiden Camogie Title for Herbertstown NS

History was made this morning in Martinstown as the school’s camogie team claimed a south title at their first attempt.


Herbertstown 1.02 Manister 1.00


Our camogie team travelled to Martinstown this morning having already claimed a couple of firsts for the school. It was the first year that the school entered a camogie team in the south division and following a blitz last week a place in a first final was achieved. Dozens of supporters joined parents and staff on the sidelines to cheer on the girls.


The match started at a frantic pace with Manister launching a few early attacks on the Herbertstown goal. It was the girls in maroon and white who registered the first score however as Aisling landed a free from the sideline. This spurred on the Herbertstown attack and some smart link up play involving Lauren and Holly led to a kicked attempt from Caoimhe which almost raised a green flag. Manister got themselves on the scoreboard with a goal and at half time Mainister led by 2 points.


Herbertstown started strongly in the second half and the defensive unit, which included Áine, Eva and Olivia, were tenacious in their efforts. Another free brought the gap to a solidarity point. Some nervy moments followed as numerous great attempts just tailed wide. It was starting to seem like it wasn’t going to be the girls’ day. Chloe was introduced to bolster the attack as Herbertstown refused to accept defeat. With time almost up, the ball broke to Aisling who escaped her marker and hammered a shot to the corner of the net. The final whistle sounded shortly afterwards and huge celebrations followed.


Manister principal Peter Lavin then presented a cup to a Herbertstown camogie captain for the first time. Massive congratulations to the girls and their coach Mr. Wixted!
