On the 4th of February at 12pm, Loreto College Cavan’s U -16 football team took on Our Lady’s St. Patricks College, Belfast, in the Ulster A final in Emyvale.
It was a bitter but dry day in County Monaghan when these two teams went head to head. Loreto got off to a strong start with Kate Kellegher opening the score line with a fine point, closely followed by two goals from Katelyn Kelly. At half time it was Loreto 2-4, Our Lady’s 0-3.
The second half was a superb display by the girls in maroon. Goals coming from Aine Reilly, Muireann Cusack, Katelyn Kelly and converted penalty by Niamh Keenaghan.
The game ended with an admirable score line of 9-12 to 0-5. Well done to the Loreto team and manangers, Mr. Maguire and Ms. Shannon. Pictured below are some photos of the match. By Lauren McVeety, TY student and U-16 Gaelic Football Team Captain
