Shamrock Gaels GAA Club notes
The Ladies Junior team made their exit from the Championship losing out narrowly to Curry last Sunday.The Gaels dominated the first half, however this was not reflected on the scoreline at half time and we were only ahead by four points. In the second two quick goals from Curry gave them the upper hand but the Gaels never gave up and with late goals from Naomh Quinn and Simone Kelly, the Gales got back into the game drawing level in the last five minutes. Curry finished stronger and won by two points in the end on a scoreline of 3-8 to 2-9. The team was: Meabh McDermott, Aoife Morrisroe, Edel Lyons, Catherine Tuohy, Lisa Callaghan, Chloe McTiernan, Eilis O'Connor, Aoife Brennan, Siobhan Brennan, Erin Mullaney (0-3), Louise Merrick (0-1), Naomh Quinn (1-0), Roisin Kearns, Simone Kelly (capt) (1-3), Mairead Tuohy (0-1). Subs: Sonia McDermott, Aisling Boyd, Sheona Leydon, Fiona Baker, Aoife O'Connor.  Thanks to all the Ladies and manager Gus Chapman for their efforts during the year. Despite not achieving success this year, the future looks bright for this team with many young players coming through to supplement the more experienced players.
