Cuman na mBunscol Division 2 Winners 2019
On Wednesday the 12th of June, girls from 3rd to 6th classes travelled to Cusack Park to participate in the Division 2 Camogie final. We came up against a tough Cratloe side. In the opening few minutes we had many chances but then a super strike from Caoilfhionn Perill secured us the first goal of the game. Grace Gleeson kept the score board ticking and at half time the score was 4:1 to 0:0 . As the second half began, Cratloe came out fighting but great defending by Síomha Perill, Clara Butler, Aimee Colleran, Clodagh Barry and Sinéad Sheedy kept them scoreless. In the other half of the field the forwards were tormenting the backs. Great play came from Sarah O’Donnell, Cora Houlihan, Courtney White Kelly, Áine Sheedy with wonderful contributions also from Keelin Forde, Ava Guilfoyle, Lelia Ryan and Abaigeal O’ Doherty. The match ended and we triumphed with the final score being 7:01 to 0:0. Captain Grace Gleeson received the shield. It marks an end to a very successful sporting school year.
