Ladies Notes 20th September
<< Go Back

Huge congratulations to our victorious  Ladies team who captured the Intermediate Championship in fine style on Saturday when they beat St. Marys in Markievicz Park.

Goals win games and in this thrilling game the late Johnny Downes (who the ladies dedicated this victory to) would have struggled with his notebook and biro to keep up to date with the scores as we ran out winners on a scoreline of 6.06 to 3.12.

It was a proud moment for Annette O Hara to be presented with the Barton Smith Cup and in her acceptance speech she was full of praise for the joint management team of Jack Haran and Paul Judge.

Megan Mc Cormack had the honour of receiving the Player Of the Match Award.

Into the dressing rooms and the smelly socks, muddy boots and grass stained jerseys were exchanged for River Island, Newlook and other designer gear to go with the Louis Vuitton and converse footwear as the girls got ready to party.

The stale smell of sweat was replaced by the aroma of Estee lauder and Chanel.

Even Judgie got in on the act and gave himself a very genereous portion of the latest David Beckham range in after shave. (not that it was needed as the girls find judgie irresistible anyway)

A cavalcade of cars accompanied the team bus and the bonfires burned brightly to welcome home the girls with the trophy, last won in 2009.

The first stop was The Travellers Rest in Keash which was very fitting, as it was there 40 years ago that the senior men first landed with the clubs first ever piece of silverware. The procession continued throughout the area until it reached its  final destination of Teach Murray in Gurteen where the party really took off.

Drurys of Monasteraden is the chosen destination for Sunday and then its back to the training ground as we prepare for our Connaught Semi Final pencilled in for Oct 11th.

Many thanks to Aisling Stephenson for all the photos that can be viewed on Facebook or on our webpage.

The U.12 girls were defeated in their Championship match against Eoghan Rua and now enter the A2 Championship in a fortnights time.

Meanwhile the U.16 girls play their last match in the group series this Tues evening in Connolly Park Collooney against the home team. The game is fixed for 6.30.

Finally a very Happy Birthday to Mary B. Hannon who is celebrating a very "significant" birthday this weekend.
