The senior ladies team suffered a heart breaking loss in today's Munster Final against a physically stronger and imposing Ennis Community College. Our girls went into half time just one point down on a score of 2-5 to 1-7. We got hit with 2 quick goals at the beginning of the second half and were on the back foot from there on in. In all fairness to our team they rallied and showed great character to chip away at the lead and led by 2 points with 15 minutes remaining. Unfortu...nately the strength and experience of the Ennis team allowed them to finish strongly with our girls fighting hard to the end and narrowly missing a goal chance to set up a deserved equaliser. The final score was Ennis CC 5-11 Killarney CC 4-11.
Unfortunately ,it simply was not our day but there were some outstanding performances on our team. Carmel Looney game was an exhibition at full back while the dynamic stack sisters caused havoc with Niamh (player of the match) scoring 1-4 from play and older sister Kate also contributing 1-4.Martha Fitzgerald scored 2 classy points from play while Molly O’Connor and Ciara Kearney both managed to raise the green flag in the second half.
Well done to all 25 players, Ms Louise Mccarthy and Ms Edel Cronin for their expert guidance throughout the year. The 70 supporters who travelled were in full voice for the whole game and did themselves, their team and school proud. A special mention to Ann Maire for all her hard work decorating the school, making flags and raising school spirits. This won't be the last we hear about this group of girls, we are extremely proud of their achievements and raising the profile of sporting achievements within the school.
