Kilbree girls win Munster medals!

Kilbree U13’s competed in the Munster Community Games Finals in University of Limerick, on Saturday. The team entered for this competition is one covering Enniskeane and District. The team consisted of all but one Kilbree girl. They defeated St Catherine’s in the county final for this competition and therefore qualified for the Munster competition.

Derg (Co Clare) were the opposition in the Munster semi-final. The opposition were very strong but the girls fought hard. They were seven points down with four minutes left. They dug deep and scored three goals in a thrilling finish. They qualified for the Munster final.

Cashel provided a stern test in the final. They were just too strong and the West Cork girls lost the final. They finished up their day with silver Munster medals and were thrilled with the outcome, finishing second in Munster is a great achievement. Thanks to Tony O’Neill for all his work with the girls.
