Sarsfields hurling and camogie clubs would like to wish Emer O’Farrell the very best of luck in Sunday’s All Ireland Senior Camogie Final against Kilkenny. According to Emer, “both defensively and in attack we will have to put in a top performance or else we know the cup won’t be coming back to Leeside with us.
The fact we are in our eight final in a row won’t matter a damn if we lose on Sunday. “I still think that there is still a bad taste after we lost in the final two years ago and I for one don’t want to experience* that feeling again. We played well that day but the hunger and desire that Wexford had was unbelievable. “It will be the same on Sunday from Kilkenny and we will have to surpass that to win.
The feeling we all had after losing two years ago still drives us on as we face into what will be another tough game for us. “But we have the squad to deal with this and the experience we have gained over the eight years should stand to us. We know what we have to do and all will be geared up for the challenge ahead.”
It is obvious from talking to Emer about her passion for the game and as well as Cork her club means a lot to her. “My club is my world and without them I wouldn’t have been lucky enough to get where I have without my club. I joined Sars when I was nine and haven’t looked back since then. In my younger days at the club I was lucky enough to have the likes of Liz Dunphy and Breda Kenny training me. “To have players like this training you can only inspire you and when they won the All-Ireland one year when I was nine or 10 I managed to get on the bus for the homecoming.
