The 1993 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship was the high point of the 1993 season. The championship was won by Cork who defeated Galway by a ten-point margin in the final.[1] The match drew an attendance of 5,400.[2][3][4][5][6]

Semi-finals[edit]

Colette O'Mahony scored 3–5 as Cork beat Kilkenny in a high scoring and exciting semi-final, and substitute and Lynn Dunlea snatched an unlikely winning goal when completely surrounded by Kilkenny defenders to see Cork go through by a point, 5–10 to 2–18. Galway qualified for their first All-Ireland final since 1962 when they defeated Wexford in another high-scoring semi-final at Duggan Park.

Final[edit]

Lynn Dunlea scored three goals in Cork’s victory in the final. Croke Park resembled a building site as Cork won their second successive All Ireland.[7][8] Desmond Fahy wrote in the Irish Times. :

The real difference between the sides was Cork’s deep well of experience. When the game hovered invitingly for both teams in the first five minutes of the second half, they were the side that were able to grasp it.[9]
