Thanks very much to the eight teams that took part in the Christine Bollard tournament in Rush. A big thank-you to the Bollard family who supply the cup and all the fabulous trophies for the tournament.
Congratulations to St Margarets who won the final against O'Dwyer's by two points - a great final to watch. Congratulations to number 4 Shauna O'Hara from St Margarets who won the overall Player of the Tournament. There were a number of players in contention for this and it was a hard job for Christy to make the final decision.
Well done to all our participants and thanks to all the girls for a very enjoyable day of Gaelic. Thanks to all the mentors, parents, supporters, refs, groundsmen, the piper, St John's, all the Maurs representatives/office staff/parents that helped out in every way, especially in the kitchen area and behind the scenes.
All at St Maurs hope that any of the girls who got injuries will recover quickly and be ready for the upcoming championship matches.
