Mary Immaculate Junior Ladies Football Team contested the Junior D Clare Schools Final on Wednesday 18th May in Gurteen GAA Grounds.
Scoil Mhuire Ballingeary 3-14 Mary Immaculate Lisdoonvarna 1-5
Mary Immaculate’s junior ladies footballers recently reached their first ever Munster Final against Scoil Mhuire Ballingeary which was played in Mannix College GAA pitch in Charleville. Mary Immaculate, captained by Lizzy Roche, worked tirelessly in the first half and secured a two point lead at the break. However, Ballingeary found their stride in the second half and emerged as decisive winners on the day. The final score line does not reflect how well the much younger Mary Immaculate side played with a never say die attitude until the final whistle.
The first year girls team defeated Kilmihil and St. Caimins 2 in their group games of the Clare post primary 1st year blitz which took place in Eire Óg GAA grounds recently. These victories put them into the semi-final against Colaiste Mhuire 2 which resulted in the girls claiming a spot in the final against St. Caimins 1 and were unlucky in their attempt for success. Well done to all the girls involved.
