Records broken and almost equaled in the All Ireland Finals 2012
This year's Championships will be remembered for a number of very memorable reasons, in no particular order they are...
The weather was a huge factor on the proceedings with an easterly wind bringing low cloud across the mountains from the Irish Sea, on any other Finals Day the wind is usually from a westerly or north westerly direction which in effect aids the Hurlers in particular from the start at "An Fhana Mor" while the Camogie and Boys Under 16 competitors are shielded from same as they puck away. While the Camogie and then the Boys Under 16 started their respective finals the organisers were still deliberating as to whether the Seniors should go ahead on the 5km course or resort to the alternative "lower" course, the decision to use the "lower" course which took the competitors from the start line to An Gábhlan, back to the start and onwards to An Gábhlan a second time before turning for the finish line, the distance still 5km was made and as the Senior Hurlers made their way to the start the clouds lifted.
In a superbly organised Leinster Camogie Poc Fada competition at the Phoenix Park, Dublin took top spot in the senior and U14 competitions.
Victory in the adult event went to Dublin Junior goalkeeper Stephanie Carthy of Naomh Mearnóg who pipped Wexford's Deirdre Colfer of St Martins by two shots with last year's winner Tracey Condell of the Naomh Bríd club in Carlow in third spot.
