All-Ireland champions set for Glenravel welcome

By Michael McMullan

ALL-IRELAND Junior ladies champions Antrim will have their official homecoming on Wednesday night (7pm) in Glenravel.

It comes a week after the county were crowned All-Ireland junior camogie title.

The Saffrons won their first All-Ireland title in 10 years after Saturday’s replay win over Fermanagh.

Antrim were in a commanding position at Croke Park in the drawn final, but needed a late Orlaith Prenter free to give them a second bite.

They made no mistake at the second of asking with a commanding performance. After the game, manager Emma Kelly was also looking ahead to trials in November and putting together a promotion charge from Division Four.

The jubilant squad brought the cup into the county on Sunday night, with a tractor and trailer ferrying them into Moneyglass.

Wednesday’s festivities begin in Glenravel at 7pm, with fans encouraged to bring a jersey or ball to have them signed by the team.

There will also be an opportunity to have photos taken with the team and their Ulster and All Ireland silverware.
