The 1933 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship was the high point of the 1933 season in Camogie. The championship was won by Dublin who defeated Galway by a 17-point margin in the final.[1] The match was played at Killester.[2][3][4][5][6]


The championship was entered by 16 counties, up from 10 in 1932. Kildare qualified for the semi-final for the only time in their history, but found themselves 3-0 to nil down at half time and scoring a late goal through Polly Smith of Newbridge St Theresa’s. The decision to name the inter-county cup the O'Duffy Cup after Sean O'Duffy was made at a Central Council meeting on August 19, 1933.


Dillon Bowden scored the first point in the final as Ita McNeill and Jean Hannon shared seven goals between them in the Dublin attack. The Dublin midfield trio of Mollie Gill, Máire O’Kelly and Emmy Delaney dictated the final. Galway stayed in the match until half-time but were swept away in the second period. Monica Duggan, sister of hurling star, Jimmy Duggan played for Galway in the final.[7]
