Shamrock Gaels GAA Club notes

The Girls U16 Team captured the ‘B’ Championship title with an exciting 3-11 to 2-8 win over Eastern Harps last Sunday. The Gaels were under pressure in the first half conceding two penalties one of which was saved by keeper Meabh McDermott while the second hit the post and we were behind by two at half time. In the second half the girls went five points down but never stopped working and with minutes to go we took the lead for the first time running out winners 3-11 to 2-8. This continues a remarkable run of titles for Ladies football in the club over the last few years and adds to the Minor title already won this year.
