The 2000 National Camogie League, the second most important elite level inter-county competition in the women's’ team field sport of camogie was won by Cork, who defeated Tipperary in the final, played at O'Connor Park, Tullamore.[1][2]


Tipperary easily defeated Armagh and Derry and overcame an inexperienced Kilkenny team before they defeated Galway after extra time in a closely fought semi-final. Cork defeated Armagh, Galway (twice), Kilkenny and Tipperary en route to the final.

The Final[edit]

The pattern of the final was set once Fiona O'Driscoll placed the ball past Jovita Delaney in the Tipp goal in the first minute of the second half.[3][4][5][6][7] Playing with a strong wind, Tipperary confined Cork to one point from a free in the first half while sending over seven of their own.Cork had equalized by the 53rd minute and pulled away with a goal from Ciara Walsh, who had scored 1-6 against Kildare in the junior final which had preceded the senior final. Shortly afterwards Fiona O'Driscoll’s lobbed shot went all the way to the Tipp net.

Division 2[edit]

The Junior National League, known since 2006 as Division Two, was won by Cork intermediates who defeated Laois in the final.
