Ladies Win Jnr Football Munster Final!
On Thursday 5th of February, the Junior Munster Ladies Football Final between Scoil Pol (Limerick) and Gaelcoláiste Mhuire (Cork) took place in Charleville. Little over a week since their disappointing loss in the senior ladies final, the girls of Scoil Pol bounced back with an impressive performance against a skilful and resilient Cork side.
Despite the terrible weather endured over the past number of weeks the excellently maintained pitch at Charleville allowed both teams to play a skilful and high tempo brand of football. It was Scoil Pol who, aided with the wind, started much brighter with four unanswered points. Despite the constant pressure, Gaelcoláiste’s defence worked tirelessly in closing down space and tackling, providing limited scoring chances to the Scoil Pol forwards.Read more...
