Championship Finalists Confirmed

It was a busy weekend for Ladies Football in the county. Check out all the results here.

The finalists for both the Intermediate and Senior Championships are now confirmed following Sunday’s semi-finals. The Senior final will be between Cooley and Geraldines following their victories over Newtown Blues and St Mochtas respectively.

In the Intermediate final St Patricks will play St Fechins, who came out on top after extra-time in their semi-final versus the Dreadnots.

After the final

Not all happy reading sadly, but there has been massive media coverage of the Ladies All Ireland Finals. Here’s just a few reactions on Twitter after the Junior final on Sunday;


Phone lost + found in Croke Pk

A message from a very helpful steward in Croke Park:

A young Louth supporter lost her mobile phone in a gully/crevice yesterday and was unable to retrieve it (Around Section 334 Row C). The Huawei phone was located by facilities after the Louth match under the stand.

I handed it into the Lost and Found (Noonan’s 01-8192319). I was talking to her father but didn’t get his number but I’m sure she would like it back. I was a steward at the gate beside where she lost the phone.

Hard luck yesterday.

Hard Luck Ladies

It wasn’t to be for our Ladies team today, it’s been a hugely emotional season, well done to the team, management and everyone involved on getting to the final but hard luck on the day. Congratulations to Limerick.

U12 Patsy Thornton Memorial Cup

U12 Patsy Thornton Memorial Cup

The family of the late Patsy Thornton & Newtown Blues have donated a cup for the U12 competition. Patsy was a great footballer and lover of Gaelic and with close ties with the Blues and in his earlier years the Geraldines, we are delighted that we can remember him and his family in this way. (If we can keep the competition going next year his granddaughters will play in it with Mattock).
