The senior girls Volleyball Team played in the quarter-finals of their division on Tuesday, November 20, in Portmarnock Community School. The Fethard team was captained by Emma Hayes and included Christina Myler, Aisling Costin, Tara Horan, Michelle Walsh, Louise Fitzgerald, Molly O’Dwyer, Katie Whyte and Orla Walsh. The girls gave it their all on the day and excelled during the second set. Unfortunately, Portmarnock proved too strong in the end for Fethard. Well done to the girls on having reached the quarter-finals and for their great effort.
