The 2003 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 Páirc Uí Rinn.[1][2]


Tipperary defeated Antrim and Dublin, and had a walkover from Derry and defeated Kilkenny to reach the final. Cork had a tougher draw, but defeated Galway, Wexford, Limerick and Kilkenny.

The Final[edit]

The teams were level on six occasions during the final. Cork’s superior fitness won the final with a late quartet of points. Fiona O'Driscoll contributed a personal total of 2-5.[3][4][5][6][7] Tipperary did not have a single wide during the hour. Cork had five, four of them in the first half. Tipperary reversed the result in the All-Ireland final, the third time they had done so in a four-year period.

Division 2[edit]

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