Vincent's and Boden to pack O'Toole Park

BODEN boss, Richie Sweetnam, is hoping the Dublin camogie public pour into O'Toole Park next Sunday. It should be another belter between the two old foes, Ballyboden and St Vincent's.

"O'Toole Park is a nice venue for the final. I have played there myself and when there's a big crowd, the atmosphere translates out onto the pitch. It drives the players on," states Richie.

Both semi-finals will have Boden and Vins match sharp. Na Fianna tested Vins, while Lucan asked the champions a few questions.

"It was a hard, tough game from start to finish. There was nothing in it. Tit for tat. We'd get a couple of scores, they'd get a couple of scores," mused Richie.

"We are just delighted that we came through. And on Sunday it will be all about trying to produce our best."

Richie feels that Lucan won't have to wait too long to make their first senior final.

"They are a very good young side. They have a lot of talent coming through.

"Their day will come. It always does. It's a matter now of them keep fighting and believing.

"Lucan have good mentors there. The players just need to keep listening to them and to keep plugging away.

"We have met them a few times now over the last three years in league and championship.

"I remember we played them out in Lucan at the group stage last season. It was an awful wet night under the lights.

"But it was an absolute ding-dong battle. You wouldn't see a better game."

And the prospects are just as bright for Super Sunday at the Crumlin Crucible.

When Boden and Vins go out to play, they turn up the volume.
