Congratulations and well done to our U16 Ladies football team who had a hard fought ,but comprehensive victory over Tuam/Cortoon in the U16 County Final last week.The game was played in beautiful conditions in Barnadearg at the home of Killererin Football Club. Tuam/Cortoon had won the U16 County Final last year at this venue against Claregalway and they jumped into an early lead of 1-2 to 0-0 but slowly but surely the Claregalway Forwards got into the game and got the scores to. put Claregalway ahead at halftime. It was more of the same in the second half with the Claregalway backs and midfielders working very hard to stiffle the Tuam attack. Tuam/Cortoon closed the gap to three points with 12 Minutes to go but from there the backs closed the doors and our forwards ran rampant to finish the game as county champions on a scoreline of Claregalway 8-10 TuamCortoon 3-9. The Girls enjoyed a dip in the lake at Annaghdown pier afterwards
