A POWERFUL second half performance saw Derry get the better of defending champions Antrim and clinch the NWP Recycling Ulster Senior Camogie Championship title at Swatragh on Sunday.
The Saffrons began the game in fine style but once the Oak Leafs settled they ran out convincing 1-13 to 0-9 winners to claim a 13th provincial title at this level.
Antrim raced into an early five point lead before Kilrea's Karen Kielt landed Derry's first score from a free after 17 minutes.
A goal from Mairead McNicholl helped the hosts to a 1-6 to 0-7 half-time lead and they went on to dominate after the break, their greater fitness helping them to a comfortable seven point winning margin.
This weekend, it's the turn of the county's hurlers to take centre stage as they take on Ulster rivals Armagh in the Nicky Rackard Cup final at Croke Park in Dublin.
