'It's a very good thing that the boys have won - now the girls want to feel that success as well'

Clare camogie All-Star Chloe Morey is targeting a big year with club and county in 2014.

WATCHING THE LADS win a club and county double has given Clare All-Star Chloe Morey all the motivation she needs for next season.

Morey is too young to remember the Banner glory days in the 1990s but she savoured every moment this summer as cousin Séadna, 10 days her senior, won a brilliant U21 and senior double.

And there was more reason to party a few weeks later when Sixmilebridge won their first county title in 11 years.

“Seeing all these celebrations, we really want to be in on the act as well for both county and club,” Morey told

It’s a very good thing in the club that the boys have won because now the girls want to feel that success as well.

For the county as well, we want that as well. We’re going to try and feed off it as much as we can now.

Brothers Caimin and Alex were both on the senior panel that beat Newmarket-on-Fergus to clinch county medals — but it was Chloe that picked up an All-Star for her performances in the Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship.

“I was shocked, I really was. I nearly fell off the chair.

“I didn’t even tell my mother or any of my friends to go up to it because I was only going up for the night to enjoy it. When I got called out, it was a big shock.

Obviously my family were very proud. My brothers got more slagging off their friends that I had one and they hadn’t.

“It was an enjoyable couple of days but we’ve started back county training now so I’m trying to forget about it.”

The Banner ladies have a new manager in Colm Honan and Morey is out to impress with an even better year in 2014.

“I wouldn’t see it as any pressure. I can improve myself because I didn’t think I was very deserving of [the All-Star] anyway.

“I didn’t think I had the best of years to be honest so I’m looking forward to 2014.”
