On the 29th of January, our senior girls gaelic team played their semi-final against Avondale Community College.
The girls fought hard for the entirety of the match and they were in the lead by one point at half time. Unfortunately, the opposition was very strong and they weren’t going to give in to defeat. Both teams were neck and neck all the way through until the end of the match. When the final whistle blew, the score was level at 4-7 to 5-4.
The referee then played the mandatory twenty minutes extra time. Although all of the girls put everything they had into the final minutes of the match, the Avondale team managed to win narrowly by one point. The whole team played tremendously with exceptional performances by Ellie O’Malley, Iseult Brosnan and Rachel Purcell.
Hard luck girls!
