The curtain was drawn on our Senior Ladies year earlier today when we exited the Junior B Championship at the semi-final stage where we travelled to face an amalgamation of Castlegregory / Annauscaul. It promised to be a tough encounter for our ladies after Castlegregory /Annauscaul went unbeaten to top their group. And so it proved but not without a fight. In a tough sporting battle, the home side took the win on a scoreline of 3-13 to 1-10, and so after 67 training sessions and 19 games, our ladies’ campaign finishes up a week earlier than hoped. A big thank you to our panel of players for the time and dedication they gave this year and to our management team. Thank you to our supporters for getting behind the ladies this year. Thank you also to our team sponsor JMReidys of Main Street for their support this year. We look forward to seeing our Ladies team compete again next year.
