Munster Junior Football Champions 2018!!
8th May 2018

On Tuesday the 8th of May, Scoil Pol, Kilfinane took on Scoil Mhuire, Béal Átha'n Ghaorthaidh in the Munster Junior football final in Mallow. In front of a sizable crowd, both teams delivered exciting football that was played with a high intensity. Playing with the aid of a stiff breeze, it was Scoil Pol who settled into the game faster. After exchanging points in the opening minutes, Scoil Pol took control with a clinical fifteen minute spell which saw them move into a commanding nine point lead with goals from Laoise Browne and a brace from Sinead Halpin. Despite the Limerick side's dominance on the scoreboard, Scoil Mhuire worked a number of chances moving the ball quickly through their halfback line and midfield before hitting quick ball into their inside forwards. However, they failed to capitalise on these chances, leaving them trailing by nine points with less than ten minutes left in the first half. As halftime approached, the momentum of the match swung in favour of Béal Atha'n Ghaorthaidh, with Scoil Pol's scores drying up after hitting the crossbar no less than four times. The Cork side, after some quick passing and powerful running from their midfield duo Caitlin Ni Mhathúna and Eilie Ní Laoire, hit two quick goals to leave just three between the teams at the break.

The second half started with a similar intensity as the first with both sides quickly exchanging points. From this point on however, Scoil Pól began to dominate proceedings with scores from Laoise Brwon, Katie O'Connor, Eibhlis Lee, Emma Barrett and Sinead Halpin stretching their advantage. Scoil Mhuire pushed hard to reply, but Scoil Pól held firm with dogged tackling and pressure from their defence while captain Rachel Condon lead by example in sweeping up loose ball and delivering it to the forward line. Although the weather deteriorated, the standard of football contuined to shine with both teams continuing to play with high intensity. However, it was to be Scoil Pól's day, with further scores from Sinead Halpin, Eibhlis Lee, Phena Herbert, Rose Hyland and Emma Barrett guaranteeing the cup would be heading to Limerick on a final score of Scoil Pól 5-12 Scoil Mhuire 2-06.

Ladies Gaelic Football Update in Scoil Pól


Training for the new football season resumed the first week of September. On the back of our Munster win last year, the popularity of ladies football was very evident; a 40 strong panel of junior & senior girls showed for training. Mr Somers, Mr Walsh and Ms Fitzgerald were delighted and were very hopeful of another successful year. Scoil Pól had been promoted to division D in both senior & junior grades due to our win last year.

We had some wins and losses but managed to get to the quarter final stages in both grades. The juniors won their 1/4 final against Kanturk, and were to play Kilenaule in the semifinal. Kilenaule were unable to field a team and so we were once again in a Munster final. The junior D final was fixed for the 3rd of February in Martinstown GAA pitch. Our junior girls were well prepared and looking forward to the match, but on the day, the girls of Fethard were too strong and Scoil Pól now looked to the senior footballers for Munster glory.

The senior girls beat our old rivals CTI Clonmel in the D plate semifinal after loosing their 1/4 final in the senior D cup competition. Scoil Pól will play Colaiste Craobhin Fermoy in the Munster D plate final on the 2nd of March in Manix College Charleville. We wish our girls the very best of luck and look forward to a great match and hopefully victory for Scoil Pól.
