Moira Barrett

MAY -  Moira Barrett, Ballinascarthy Camogie

  

 Moira Barrett of the Ballinascarthy Camogie Club made history this year when she captained the first Cork minor team to win the All-Ireland title since that grade was changed from U.16 to U.18, way back in 2001.

       Barrett began playing camogie with Ballinascarthy at the age of nine and also did athletics and gymnastics but camogie was her first love. Her first big win with the Bal club was this season when they won the West Cork and County junior B titles. She has been involved with Cork camogie squads since she was in sixth class and played for two seasons with the Cork U.16s. Barrett has been involved with the Cork minor team for the past two seasons and was appointed captain this year. They started training in January with a panel of 32 players. Cork had never won the All-Ireland U.18 title since that grade was introduced in 2001 but Barrett made history by captaining Cork to the title for the first time. There is no U.21 grade in camogie so her next goal now is to make Paudie Murray’s senior panel but she will be taking time out to complete her Leaving Cert in Bandon Grammar, for whom she plays hockey, in June.
