The 1982 All Ireland Camogie Championship was won by Cork, beating Dublin by a single point in the final.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Early rounds[edit]

Edel Murphy scored 1-6 and Marion Conroy another goal as Dublin withstood a late Limerick comeback to win the semi-final by three points. Three first half goals by Val Fitzpatrick helped Cork draw with Kilkenny, for whom Angela Downey scored 1-10 and Bridie McGarry equalised from a sideline ball 25 yards from the left corner flag three minutes from the end, the third draw in the championship between the teams since 1974. Cathy Landers had to score a point from midfield to give Cork victory, just as Helena O'Neill had been faced with a similar free to equalise in 1974. Helena succeeded, Cathy did not. The replay was attended by a large crowd (it was claimed that all three semi-finals had record attendances for this stage but records are incomplete) and finished Cork 5-4 to 3-10 before 20 minutes of extra time was required to separate the sides. Cork scored 2-4 to Kilkenny’s 0-2 in extra time. Their goals came from Mary Geaney and Pat Lenihan (two each), Mary O'Leary who scored 1-8, Marion McCarthy and Marion Sweeney.


A dramatic point from a 50-yard free in the last minute by Mary O'Leary leaving Dublin lamenting their third defeat in a final in six years. It followed the decisive goal with five minutes to go when Mary O'Leary collected the ball 50 yards from goal and sent in a hard driven shot which dipped below the crossbar. O'Leary scored 1-6 in a fast paced game. Marion McCarthy scored a Dublin goal from the edge of the square after 54 seconds, Cork attacked from the restart and when Yvonne Redmond was slow to clear Pat Lenihan scored a Cork goal after just 90 seconds to complete the quickest two goals in All Ireland camogie history, Una Crowley then had Dublin's second goal after seven minutes and Dublin led 2-5 to 1-3 at half time.[7]
