The 1960 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship was the high point of the 1960 season in Camogie. The championship was won by Dublin who defeated Galway by a 14 point margin in the final.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Changes in the old order[edit]

Dublin needed twenty minutes of extra time to beat Tipperary in the semi-final after what Agnes Hourigan described in the Irish Press as “one of the hardest, fastest and most exciting camogie matches ever played.” Tipperary led 1-1 to nil at half time through a goal from Brid Scully, the score was 2-1 each at full time, Kathleen Mills shot a spectacular long range goal from a free in the first minute of extra time and Dublin never subsequently lost the lead, although Tipperary cut the lead back to a point. Galway shocked Antrim in the All Ireland semi-final at Casement Park with a bizarre match-winning goal. Antrim, led until three minutes from the end, when Chris Conway dropped a high lobbing ball into the Antrim goalmouth. The ball struck the in-rushing Emer Walsh on the top of the head and was deflected out of the reach of the Antrim goalkeeper for the winner

Final[edit]

Interest in the final had evaporated by the time it was played, delayed by the drawn All Ireland senior football final.
