Croke Park ladies football 2017
We started training at the end of September. We practised our skills and kicking in training, listening to our coaches Mr Maher and Mr Kearns.
We played great and had a hard fought victory against Corpus Christi in the semis.
Training grew serious as the finals drew near.
On the day of the finals we were playing our neighbours Gaelscoil Thaobh na Coille. There was great excitement. We all left our school at 9:15 in different cars to Croke Park.
We met up below the Davin Stand. We made our way to the Hogan Stand and went into the dressing rooms.
When the time arrived to go out onto the pitch the air was full of excitement and nerves. We had worked so hard and wanted to win.
The supporters were amazing cheering us on. The whistle went and everyone put their heads down and played as hard as they could. Hannah Morgan scored a point from free and Holly Brennan scored another great point.
At half time the score was 0-4 to 0-2. The second half began well with Aobha Phelan scoring an early goal to put us in the lead. But the Taobh na Coille girls came back with three points to leave the final score 0-7 to 1-2.
We were disappointed at the end but we had a great day and it was a great experience. Well done to Taobh na Coille!
