St. Patrick’s Ladies GAA Club
Our under 12s played Clerihan in the Community Games competition on Sunday past. The first half was a low scoring affair for the St. Patrick’s girls who notched up two points by Eabha Fitzgerald and Eimear Boland, our backs were under a lot of pressure for periods during the first half and conceded 3 goals. The St. Patrick’s girls then took the game to Clerihan in what turned out to be a very exciting second half, where a total of 3.3 was scored by the St. Patrick’s girls. However a win was not to be on the evening, as Clerihan scored a further 4 goals throughout the second half. Final score: St. Patrick’s 3.5 to Clerihan 7.0. Team lineout: Dearbhla Morrissey, Ines Noonan, Andrea Brett, Robyn Horan, Eabha Hogan, Sarah Cranitch, Aishing Boland, Ciara Butler (2.0) & Aine Ryan (1.1), Erin O’Brien, Eimear Boland (0.3), Aoibheann McGrath, Ava Heffernan, Eabha Fitzgerald (0.1), Jessica Strappe, Kelly Burgess, Laura Hayes and Katie McCormack. Well done to all the girls who took part.
