Our u13 Girls won Gold at the All Ireland Community Games yesterday in University Limerick. 10 families stayed in student accommodation Saturday night to prepare for their semifinal against Limerick which they won 15-2 with 2 innings to bat. In the final they met Wexford and during torrential rain were declared worthy winners also with 2 innings to bat. A truly memorable day for this bunch of enthusiastic, determined and highly skilled young ladies. Kathryn Feeney pitches brilliantly all day with only one walk on in the final which enabled the rest of the team to shine. Captain Ciara Colleary and Laura McGuire each got 2 double outs with fantastic catches in the final. With superb base play from Allanah Clarke and Amberjade McDonald. Quick on her feet with star catches at home base was Roisin Lang. Elisha Cuffe, Anna Carnegie and Ellie Cowley commanded the outfield positions and subs Kirsten Buick, Maeve Murray and Anna Feeney also making valuable contributions to retaining this title for the second year running.
Next Saturday the U15 girls team are in Limerick participating in the GAA All Ireland Rounder’s feile 2019. We wish them luck, enjoyment and fun making more memories and friends that last a lifetime.
