Oulart seek another provincial title


By Alan Aherne

Reigning All-Ireland champions Oulart-The Ballagh will travel to Nowlan Park in Kilkenny on Sunday in search of a second successive AIB Leinster Club Senior camogie title.

The two tough games needed to see off long-time rivals Rathnure in the county final will undoubtedly stand to the formidable Wexford outfit in their clash with St. Vincent's of Dublin.

It took the Marino crew many years of trying to wrestle dominance of their domestic championship from the tight grasp of Ballyboden St. Enda's. However, they seized their chance when the long-time county titleholders lost to Lucan Sarsfields at the semi-final stage this year.

Vincent's went on to enjoy a roller-coaster seven days, drawing with Lucan before winning the replay on a Thursday night, and then defeating Mullinavat from Kilkenny in the provincial semi-final on the following weekend.

Oulart-The Ballagh are intent on going all the way to national glory again, but they will be taking it step by step and realise that Sunday's game won't be easy. Throw-in is at 3 p.m.
