Faughs/Celtic proves a perfect connection

FAUGHS and Celtic - two of the most celebrated names of the sliotar and ash.

Their camogie coming together was a slice of inspiration. And, as a result, there's plenty of good news in the Tymon Times.

The Senior 4s reached the Championship final. And three of the clubs juvenile sides also got to finals.

The 13s took gold. "We played Raheny earlier in the season and we got nothing from it," explains Trevor Cullen.

"But on the day of the final, everything came together. Next year is Féile year, so this success will encourage the girls even more," adds Trevor, who hails the contribution of Paul Duggan, Tom Comerford, Cathal O'Gorman and Karen Seery.

"They did all the work," he insists.

"It was a good weekend for the club. The 14s lost their final to a very good Good Counsel team, while the 16s beat Castleknock in their final.

"The camogie has been going well in the last couple of years. We have a fine set-up here. The astro and Ball Wall are a big help."

Faughs have their own superstar in Dublin's Georgina Kelly.

"Bringing home a couple of trophies is a lovely boost," remarks Trevor.

"We'll keep going now till the end of November. We'll call it quits at that stage, giving the players, and ourselves, the winter off!"

Then the wheel will begin to turn again in the New Year. The club's website carries a nice message: 'New players, be they complete beginners or All-Ireland champions, are always welcome.'
