Ladies All Ireland 7's

01 October, 2010

Midleton Ladies Gaelic Football

All-Ireland 7's

Midleton Ladies made history last Saturday by becoming the first Midleton
Ladies Football team to take part in the All-Ireland Ladies 7's tournament
in Dublin. The tournament was held in Naonh Mearnog and St Sylvester's Club
on the north side of Dublin. We were drawn in group 2 with Drumlane
(Cavan), Glinsk (Roscommon), Thomas Davis (Dublin) and Scoil Ui Conal (
Dublin), Midleton lost their first game against Drumlane by 0-6 to 3- 9, it
took Midleton awhile to settle and get use to the 7 a side format. Drumlane
went on to be defeated in the Semi Final. Round 2 we faced Glinsk where we
were beaten by 0-2 to 0-5, this was a much better effort by all the girls
and the game was stuck 0-2 to 0-3 up until the last 3 mins. Round 3 came
quickly, we faced Thomas Davis who ran out winner by 1-6 to 4-6, goals
really made the difference in this game. Finally we played Scoil Ui Conal
from Dublin, this was a cracking game, Midleton lost by a point on a score
line of 4-3 to 3-7. Amy McCarthy nearly rescued us with some great attempt
at goal. This was a great day of football for all and Midleton will now
make this a permeant fixture in the Diary, we hope that all players would
aspire to making this team in the future. The club would like to thanks
Margaret McEvoy, Jimmy McEvoy, Aidan Dardis and Brian Leamy for helping out
with the girls on the day and travelling to Dublin. A big thank you to the
players, Amy McCarthy, Leah McEvoy, Zoe McEvoy, Leanne Ahern, Claire
Fenton, Laura Daly, Riona Abernethy, Lisa Curtin, Julia O'Brien, Emma
Haughney, Karen Ring. Finally, Midleton Ladies Club would like to thank
John Hurley of Hurley's Supervalue Midleton for their contribution to the
weekend, Hurley's provided the girls with all the food and drinks for the
day at the 7's.
