Early on Saturday morning it was all roads to Kinnegad where the girls under-12 side took on Shandonagh in the Under-12 'C' final. Having lost to Shandonagh in the round games, the Garrycastle girls started strong and were on the attack early with some lovely points. 

A Shandonagh goal turned the game, but Garrycastle fought back and were 1-04 to 1-02 up at the break. Garrycastle started the second half with all guns blazing and two early goals set them up nicely, and from there on, the girls pushed on and won out on a score line of 3-04 to 2-02. 

This was a great performance from all of the girls with the defence holding firm and kicking great ball down the field. Midfield worked hard all through and the forwards were brilliant. Captain Kacey Mullvihill was presented with the cup and it was over to SuperMacs in Moate for refreshments. 

Well done to all the girls, and in particular team manager Colin Clyne and Assistant Ger Griffith and the backroom team of Noelle O’Donnell, Roseann O’Hara, Amelia Keena and Brian Ganly.  

Many thanks to Reilly Mushrooms for their sponsorship towards t-shirts for this successful under-12 side.
