Kildare were crowned Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Division 3 League champions this afternoon following a great win over Limerick in Birr, on a final score line of Kildare 2-9 to 0-11.

Trailing by two points at  the break Kildare fought back to level but looked in trouble late on when Limerick were awarded a penalty. However Tanta Johnson stood her ground and denied Limerick.
