To play in Croke Park was a huge achievement for our girls and they battled to the very end of the game, our captain Mia (0-2) was her usual all action self alongside her midfield partner Alana. Juliette made saves that would make Stephen Cluxton jealous and there were huge performances across the defence of Sarah, Lucy, Caoimhe, Issy, Ríodhna and Grace. Up front the girls battled hard as well, with standout performances from Catherine, Ava, Lucy, Saorla, Daisy and Sophie! The biggest cheer of the day came when substitute Thea stuck her powerful shot into the top corner of the net! All of our girls got to experience playing in Croke Park, including Anna, Aisling, Ailsa, Emily, Thuy, Elaine and Lauren! A notable absentee was Jetta, who made a great impression on her debut in the semi final.
A big thanks to the vocal support from St. Mary's parents, teachers and students that cheered the girls on throughout the game and in many cases throughout the year! It was a huge factor in ensuring that our girls came out of every game smiling.
