Antrim trounced Cork in the 1997 All Ireland Junior Camogie final

Antrim won the All Ireland Junior camogie title in 1997 when they trounced Cork in the final in Croke Park, the game played as a curtain raiser for the Senior final between Cork and Galway. The stars of the show for Antrim were Grace McMullan, Anne McKee and Catriona Higgins. Team manager was Jim Nelson while Eliane Dowds was forced to sit on the sideline because of a bad arm injury which required surgery. But probably the most extraordinary story of the game was that Mary McMullan, who had played on the Antrim team who beat Tipperary in the Senior All Ireland final in 1979, lined out again for her county 18 years later.
