This year the girls gaelic has been a great success. Although we got off to a rocky start losing by only three points to Calasanctius we were determined to come back even stronger. We bounced back from this defeat to beat Athenry. Our hopes of continuing our season were riding on this match and although it was a tough contest we pulled through with a spectacular win.
We then advanced to the semi-finals against local rivals Taylors we knew it was going to be a competitive match from the beginning. Although we conceded a number of scores and were down at half time, with fantastic performances from scorers Aoife McGovern, Zara O’Toole and Aoife O’Farrell we came back to win the game 3-5 to 1-6 and secure our place in the first girls final in Jes history.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the contribution and commitment of Ms.Biggin’s (manager) , Marian and Sarah Donnellan (coaches), who gave their own time to hold training every Thursday.
The final will take place at 11am on Friday 11th May at The Prairie, Salthill.
