Matches played

The 1964 All Ireland Camogie Championship was won by Dublin, their eight title in succession in a winning streak that would eventually extend to ten in a row, beating Antrim in the final. The match was attended by more than 3,000 spectatros according to the report in the Irish Times.[1][2][3][4][5][6]


Dublin beat the Connacht champions Galway by 10-2 to nil at Parnell Park on a day Galway were missing their goalkeeper Eileen Naughton. Antrim beat Munster champions Tipperary by 6-8 to 2-3 at Glenarriffe.


Three early goals from Judy Doyle finished the match as a contest and Dublin won easily by 7-4 to 3-1.[7] Agnes Hourigan wrote in the Irish Press:

Despite the scoreline the final must rank with the greatest and most brilliant camogie matches ever played. Three early goals by their flying full forward Judy Doyle in the first seven minutes of the game proved the really vital factor in Dublin’s victory. Those early goals, all the result of crafty team-work by the experienced Dublin attack, hung heavy on the minds of the Antrim forwards for the rest of the first half. Although with the fresh breeze behind them, they had by far the greater number of chances, they often shot too hurriedly and too wildly and Concepta Clarke saved magnificently when they did shoot straight. The result was that, at the interval, Antrim had one point on the board and nine wides, while Dublin, thanks to that wonderful zig-zag solo run and flashing shot by captain Una O’Connor, and a rare piece of opportunism by Bríd Keenan, had stretched their goal total to five and their lead to fourteen points by the half-time whistle. Lesser teams than Antrim might well have accepted defeat at that stage, but the girls in saffron, having switched Lily Scullion to midfield and Maeve Gilroy to centre-forward, restarted as though the game had just begun.[8]
