TAKE YOUR POINTS – Antrim camogs discuss Intermediate success and the future

ANTRIM camogs Lucia McNaughton and Chloe Drain are eager to compete at the top level when they play at senior level next year.

The two players are the guests on this weekend’s episode of Gaelic Life’s GAA chat show Take Your Points.

The pair came on to discuss their incredible season when they won the All-Ireland intermediate Camogie title, beating Kilkenny in the final.

They talked about their journey to the final, the challenges they faced, and revealed why they felt so confident of victory in the decider.

They also look ahead to next year when they will make the step up to senior camogie.

Lucia McNaughton, who was captain this year said: “I think it is brilliant that we are up in senior. We have shown that there are two teams in Ulster. We have shown that we are a force to be reckoned with.

“We know what we have. I don’t mind going in as underdog, it just means we get a chance to prove ourselves.”

Chloe Drain says that she can’t understand why Antrim don’t get more respect.

“We hear people say to us ‘you are keeping camogie going up there’ but why are we different?

“Why does geography come into it? We do the same training and the same work.

“Going forward I think us an Down will have good battles with the senior teams.”
