Dungannon Eoghan Ruadh Vs Strabane Shamrocks – 2012 Tyrone Senior Hurling Championship

On Monday night I travelled up to Greencastle for the first semi-final of the Tyrone Senior Hurling Championship between Dungannon Eoghan Ruadh and Strabane na Seamroga.

I don’t often to get an opportunity to photograph much hurling in Tyrone and it took me a while getting used to the change from football. Photographing hurling is definitely a lot more difficult than shooting football due to the speed the ball travels at, the smaller size of the ball, the fact that players don’t hold onto the ball for that long and then actually trying to see where the ball is…… which isn’t made any easier when my eyesight isn’t the best! But having said that once you get the camera focused and locked on a piece of action, you definitely get a great set of action snaps and the results can be very rewarding.

Dungannon Eoghan Ruadh largely dominated the game from the start and despite conceding a couple of soft goals to na Seamroga, they held out to win 3-16 to 3-09 with a standout performance from Dungannon full-forward Kiefer Morgan.

Naomh Colmcille will now take on Carrickmore Eire Og in the next semi-final next week.
