Cork hold off West­meath to re­tain ti­tle

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Sports -

Cork man­aged to re­verse their group de­feat to West­meath to win the Na­tional League Di­vi­sion Two ti­tle for the sec­ond year in a row, 0-8 to 1-4.

It went down to the wire, how­ever, as Pamela Gre­ville’s 24th-minute goal from a 20m free gave the Lakesiders real hope hav­ing fallen five points be­hind.

The Ra­har­ney sharp­shooter fol­lowed up with a free to re­duce the gap to the min­i­mum but West­meath could not find the equaliser, as Cork de­fended mag­nif­i­cently in the last eight min­utes.

The de­feat is a bitter dis­ap­point­ment for West­meath, par­tic­u­larly for Sheila McGrath, Han­nah Core and Me­gan Dow­dall, who also lost out in the All-Ire­land Mi­nor B fi­nal on Satur­day.
