GAA Picture of the Year contender as Lismore camogie player attempts to block sliotar with bare hands

This is what the game is all about, so fair play to Lismore's Grainne Kenneally.

Yesterday Croke Park played host to the camogie club finals. Milford retained the senior title, seeing off Ardrahan in a low-scoring affair 0-6 to 0-5.

But the intermediate final was the game of the day, as Kilkenny's Ballyhale Shamrocks and Lismore will have to do battle again after playing out a 1-6 to 0-9 draw at HQ.

A late Aoife Hannon score secured the draw for Lismore, who had battled back from being two down with just minutes remaining.

The two sides will do it all again on March 16 but we doubt the game will produce an image as good as this one, captured by INPHO's Cathal Noonan.

Lismore's Grainne Kenneally lost her hurley but that didn't prevent her from trying to block down a shot by Ballyhale's Jacqui Frisby. Brave, committed and tough, it symbolises everything that is great about the club GAA championships.
