Dunnamaggin LFC FÉILE PLATE CHAMPS The U15 girls had a super day out on Saturday June 4th in blustery conditions at the Division 2 Féile in Portlaoise GAA Club. They got off to a winning start in their first match against Naomh Eoin of Carlow on a 2:2 to 0:4 scoreline. Thomas Davis of Dublin and St. Joseph’s of Westmeath were the next back to back rounds for the girls and these two sides were strong and overcame Dunnamaggin.. The girls then had a well needed break and came out in flying form for their next round match against Valleymount of Wicklow. A win in this match would secure a place in the Plate Final and the girls were up for it. They worked hard and secured the victory. The Plate final saw the squad face Réalta na Mara of Westmeath and again the girls were firing on all cylinders. They supported each other and displayed some fantastic passages of play to win on a scoreline of 6:4 to 2:5. Well done to the girls for the tremendous effort today, their parents for supporting them all day long and of course their mentors Eléna Byrne, Denis Lahart, Séan Ryan, Connor Bass and Noel Lahart. Thanks also to idsports Callan Co Op Treacy's Carpets And Furniture and Marble city paving for their sponsorship of the teams gear. Thanks to also for thwe many kind donations from parents and the club members. The girls had a very special day.
