The 2008 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship—known as the Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship for sponsorship reasons—was the high point of the 2008 season. The championship was won by Cork who defeated Galway by a five point margin in the final. [1][2] The championship was played between June 1 and September 14, 2008. The format was as follows: seven county teams entered. Each team played all of the others once, earning 2 points for a win and 1 for a draw. The top four teams qualified for the semi-finals.

Group Stages[edit]

Substitute Lourda Kavanagh’s late goal helped Galway spring a surprise against Cork in the group stages by 1-9 to 0-8 at Páirc Ui Rinn. Cork went on to gain revenge when the same teams med again in the All-Ireland final, the second time a group result had been reversed in the final in the three years since the round-robin format had been introduced into the championship in 2006.
