Claregalway Minor Ladies put in a brilliant performance last Saturday in Caltra to capture the Mairead Meehan Trophy for the first time in our Club’s history. Like last year this was a high quality well contested game between the best to Minor Teams in the County. Claregalway playing into a slight breeze lead at halftime by 2–4 to 1–5. Halfway into the second half Claregalway had opened up a seven point lead but the holders weren’t giving up their title easy and hit the next 2–1 to draw the sides level. From there to the end it was the Claregalway ladies who took control to hit 1–3 without a reply to win on a score of 5–11 to Kilkerrin/Clonberns 3–11. Dual Star Michelle Dunleavey was awarded the Player of the Match. Captain Siofra Leonard accepted the Trophy before heading off to celebrate her 18th Birthday that evening. Eight of the recent Galway Minor Team that won the All-Ireland were in action four on each side.
