A piece of sporting history will be created in this year’s Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Camogie final as Galway and Kilkenny meet for the first time ever in a Senior Camogie final.


The triple header takes place this Sunday  in Croke Park when Laois and Kildare meet in the Premier Junior final at noon; Limerick and Galway in the Intermediate at 2.00pm and Galway face Kilkenny at 4.00pm .

Galway are contesting their third senior final in four years, losing the 2010, 2011 deciders to Wexford while Kilkenny return to GAA HQ for the first time since 2009. Remarkably the sides have never met, since the first senior All Ireland in 1932. Kilkenny lead the roll call of honours with 12 titles to Galway’s one.

Speaking at the media preview event at Croke Park.

President of the Camogie Association Aileen Lawlor said:


“Our upcoming Liberty Insurance All Ireland Camogie Finals is the biggest day on the Camogie calendar and we are looking forwardly immensely to three superb games. The meeting of Kilkenny and Galway is historic and it’s remarkable that both of these camogie super-powers have never crossed paths in a senior final in the Association’s long history.


This year also marks the first of the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Finals day, and we are delighted to have enjoyed such an exciting championship with Liberty Insurance in their first year as joint sponsors of both the Hurling and Camogie All Ireland championships. I urge all of the Camogie and GAA community to come to Croke Park on September 15th and support our national game and also our leading players.”


Annette Ni Dhathlaoi, Head of Marketing, Liberty Insurance commented:


“Liberty Insurance has chosen a very exciting year to join the camogie and hurling family and we wish all  our teams the best of luck. Liberty Insurance is keen to promote and support both codes equally and our commitment extends far beyond the championship season. Our recently launched GAA club offer on allows camogie and GAA clubs to raise funds for their local clubs. We hope such initiatives will have a lasting benefit to both codes as ultimately it’s one game and one family.”
