Girls reach final

Congratulations to the girls from 5th and 6th classes who have reached the final of Cumann na mBunscol Division 1 Schools Football Competition. Following last year’s success in Division 2 the girl’s were “promoted” to Division 1. It is a wonderful achievement to reach the final in their first year playing at the highest level.

The semi-final against The Heath was a nail-biting affair. Our girls trailed at half-time by one point, but 3 secoond half goals by Lisa Walsh (2) and Áine Lacey saw Ballylinan through on a score of 4-7 to 3-5. It was a brave display by all the team and the girls deserve their place in the final.

Thanks to Ms. Mulhare and Mrs. Connolly for all their work with the team. They have put together a very strong team with great spirit. Well done to all!
