Final Here We Come!

Final Here We Come!
Another great week for our St. Mary's Gaelic football teams! On another sunny afternoon in Herbert Park, our 5th and 6th team secured top spot to finish champions of the B League with an impressive win to start the week!
This was followed by one of the greatest team performances by our 6th class girls as they dominated the semi final to secure their place in next week's final with a 5-4 to 1-0 win over Scoil Naomh Pádraig - despite suffering some notable injuries early in the week! Goals from Gráinne, Rachel, Ella, Alannah and Lucy were crucial to the team's win, with a massive performance from Captain Aisling in the middle of the field and defenders Miller, Lilly, Eve, Eva, Emily and Isobel were solid as ever, backed up by the safe hands of Maggie in goal. Sophie and Molly had a great gam in the forwards. Once again, everyone got to get out and get to play, with stellar performances coming off the bench from Sophie, Tara, Danielle, Millie and all of the girls that came along to play and support. It takes a full panel to make it to the finals and everyone has played their part to get the team this far.

Unfortunately, it was not to be 3 in a row for our boys as their season ended with a loss to a very strong St. Kevin's BNS team in their semi-final. The Boys can hold their heads high after a spirited never-say-die performance that typified the respect for officials, teammates, opposition and the game that we have always promoted in our trainings.
Attention now turns to preparation for the final against Scoil ThomaisLaurel Lodge in Parnell Park next Wednesday at 10am.
Players' Bus will be leaving St Mary's Mt. Eden Road at 8:45am on Wednesday morning and supporters' buses carrying cheering fans from 4th to 6th class will follow at 9am.
Once again, all support is welcome and appreciated and we are hopeful that the smaller venue will make for a greater atmosphere as we fill it with cheering St. Mary's supporters!
Go raibh míle maith agibh as bhur gcuid tacaíocht!
St. Mary's Abú!
