Our senior girls’ football team made history last week when they became the first ladies team in St. Marnock’s to win a football final since 1999!

They overcame a strong Gaelscoil na Cille side on Tuesday 15th May in to be crowned Fingal League champions after a breath-taking display of skill and determination. The game ended 5-6 to 5-3 in favour of the stronger St. Marnock’s side who never looked like they were going to lose out. The girls played as one unit and always believed in each other, as they have done all year long in their matches. They have been undefeated this year and judging by their incredible display in Abbotstown last week, it was easy to see why. Their wonderful sportsmanship, teamwork, dedication, skill and positive attitude was clear for all to see. We are so proud of this amazing bunch of players!

It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Alison, Millie, Naomi, Lucy, Áine, Emma, Jade, Gloria, Chloe & Nicole as they depart for secondary school. They have been wonderful role models to the younger sportspeople in the school and they will be so missed! We look forward to the coming year when our younger players in the school will join our current 5th Class senior players; Ava, Lilly, Maeve, Ciara, Abigail, Alannah and Shauna, who are ready to take over the role of leaders from the girls who will leave us this year. The future of ladies football is bright in St. Marnock’s! J
