The seniors put in a good performance on Friday last against Coolkenno in the Keating Trophy winning by three points, there are two games left to play to finish out this season.
The under-14 girls played St Nicholas last Sunday in the Division 2 league playoff final in Ballinakill.
The girls never got going and found themselves nine points down and despite cutting it back to two we couldn’t get that all important goal and eventually we just ran out of time.
Despite this loss the girls can be really proud of themselves having won the ‘A’ Shield earlier in the season, so, even though the year finished with a defeat, any year you win a trophy is a good one.
Well done to the panel of girls on the day: Grace Murphy, Doireann Smyth, Cora Heffernan, Katie Smith, Alyssia Larkin, Laura Murphy, Aleesha McMahon, Yasmin Phipps O’Connor, Rebecca Gillan, Laragh Davis, Una Power, Zara di Tofano, Alicia Farrell, Katelyn O’ Toole and Sophie o Reilly. Thanks to Shayne, Shay, Kirsty and Bernie for looking after the girls all year
