The Donegal U14 camogie squad travelled to Killeavy in Armagh to take part in the Ulster Camogie Blitz on Saturday 16th August. Although missing some players on holiday, 22 players under the management of Manus O’Donnell, Nuala Lafferty, Aideen Quinn and Joe Kealy, lined out in Section D of the blitz facing teams from Monaghan and Tyrone. The girls started against Monaghan and quickly established a lead. They stretched this lead in the second half and finished winners on a scoreline of 5.2 – 0.0. Next up was Tyrone B and again with a strong team effort Donegal won 9.4 – 0.0. This meant that the team faced Monaghan again in the final. Monaghan put up a great battling performance in the first half but Donegal pushed on in the second and won the game on a score of 4.4 – 0.0. The Eddie Murphy Shield was presented to Captain Rory Doherty, the first Ulster trophy won by Donegal camogs in 25 years.
