Waterford Camogie is on an upward trajectory, and despite a humbling defeat against Tipperary in a provincial semi-final, eyes in the South East remain set on a positive Championship run.

New manager Seán Power has installed a sense of dogged determination in this side and will be looking to build on an emphatic opening-day victory as we head into Sunday's latest instalment of the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.


His side followed up last year’s All-Ireland semi-final with victory in the Very League Division 1B title, ultimately earning promotion to the top tier.

A rare win over Cork in Munster was an eye-catching outing - a first win over the Rebels at the 14th attempt since returning to the senior grade in 2016.

The Déise women's opening group win against Offaly saw them cruise home by a scoreline of 2.26 to 1.09. There were ten different scorers on the day, but Power is still looking to improve.


Injuries are always a concern during the Championship, and three household names in Rachael Walsh, Lorraine Bray and Clare Griffin, were omitted from the starting lineup in Banagher.

Speaking to the Waterford News & Star, the minor and U21 All-Ireland winning manager appreciates that setbacks are part and parcel of the great game.

"The benefit of having a strong squad is that when you have a couple of injuries, we have very capable replacements. There is no dip in quality," he said.

He is known to strive toward high standards, and his impeccable work rate has yielded multiple rewards throughout his stellar career.


When touching on his side's emphatic victory against Offaly, Power has marked several areas for improvement. He added: "It wasn’t the perfect performance from us, there’s loads to work on."

Next up for Waterford is a trip to Cappamore for a Round 2 clash with Limerick at 2.00 pm on Sunday.

Tickets are still available for purchase here.
