Dunnamaggin Ladies Gaelic Football MINOR B COUNTY CHAMPIONS 2021 We couldn’t be prouder of our minor squad who gave it absolutely everything on Saturday evening to beat Railyard in the championship final. It was a thriller of a game and with 5 minutes to go it was Railyard who had the upper hand with the flow of play going their way. Our girls did not bow down and showed great strength to regain control of the match for the final few crucial minutes and win on a score line of 4:10 to 3:10.

Congratulations to the girls and the management team of Séamus Knox, Emer Hickey, William Mulhall and Michelle Doherty.
