This week we congratulate the Irish ladies rugby team that won the Grand Slam on Sunday with a 9-6 victory over Italy in Milan.

This week we congratulate the Irish ladies rugby team that won the Grand Slam on Sunday with a 9-6 victory over Italy in Milan.

But, hands up to those who were watching it, sadly most men folk tuned into TG4 and the club finals in Croke Park. What a pity, the ladies game was an exhibition of what sport is about, class, style, determination and will to win.

The Irish ladies had it all in abundance. Indeed, the men who sat to enjoy a chat and a pint at my local that night were told all about it. Ladies present, normally GAA supporters were ecstatic and rightly so. Another victory for Mna na hEireann. It is time that menfolk realized that we are no longer the masters. So, we congratulate them, you have done yourselves and your country proud.

CELEBRATION

Boherbue lady footballers celebrate their county and Munster titles at Darby O'Gills in Killarney this Saturday night. This junior squad narrowly lost out in their bid for All Ireland glory and no doubt will be in full voice on Saturday when they look back on what was a wonderful year and the joy they brought supporters.
