Tipperary claim fifth title in six years - Sunday, September 19, 2004
Tipperary 2-11 Cork 0-9

Tipperary secured their fifth TG4 All-Ireland SCC title in six years on Sunday when they cruised to a clear eight-point victory over Cork in this year's final at Croke Park.

Having won their first title in 1999, the record set by the Premier girls is one of the most remarkable in camogie history, with Cork the only other side to claim the crown since then.

Once again, Claire Grogan was a key player in Tipperary's success this year, finishing the game with a total of nine points to her name, while goals from Deirdre Hughes and Joanne Ryan ensured that Raymie Ryan's side were always in the driving seat.

In front of a record crowd of 24,569, Cork began the game brightly with a point from Eimer Dillon putting them into the early lead. But it didn't take long for Tipperary to reel them back, with 18-year-old Grogan finding her range.

Grogan added two more points to see the sides level 0-3 to 0-3, before Deirdre Hughes converted her goal chance. The experienced full forward remained composed as the sliothar flew into the packed goal area and she showed her class to finish clinically to the back of the net.

Grogan added two more points to establish a clear five-point lead for the defending champions, 1-5 to 0-3. It was enough to seal Tipperary's momentum and Cork struggled to take their scoring chances.

At half time, Tipp still held that five-point advantage, 1-6 to 0-4, but Cork produced an early rally in the second half to cut the deficit to three points. But once Grogan put over Tipp's first point of the second half, the leaders took control again.

A second goal, this time from the hurl of centre forward and team captain Joanne Ryan, sealed the contest. Jenny O'Leary and Dillon had pointed for Cork before then, and Gemma O'Connor put another over the bar soon after the goal, but it was clear that the game was over.

Grogan finished the day with another three points, while Eimer McDonnell also got in on the scoring, as Tipp cruised to the final whistle and a fifth title in six years.

Meanwhile, there was some good news for Cork camogie, with the county's junior team recording victory over Down in the final, also played at Croke Park. The Rebels were trailing at half time, but rallied in the second half to run out 4-5 to 2-4 winners. Down failed to record a single score in the second half.
