Today is a historic occasion in Gallen C.S as we brought back to our school and town our first Ladies Football senior All Ireland title !
We had a great day as we took on Rathmore Comunity School, Co. Kerry in Rathkeale Limerick. The girls were wonderful , skillful and athletic and in the end we won 2:14 to 3:5 . Delighted was abound on the field as their friends, teachers , parents and family members surrounded them with congratulations. We were delighted to welcome them back to our PE Hall and thanks to all members of the community who gathered with us to toast their success.
To Mrs Scully, Ms Hough, KP Egan and Tom Fitzmaurice we say a huge thanks for all your work in training , mentoring and looking after the girls all year.
We also remember all the coaches and mentors in Naomh Ciaran who over the years has done so much to foster Ladies football in our community and we know retired teacher Donal Sullivan, (who started Ladies football in the school in Ferbane),will be delighted to see Ferbane Ladies win an All Ireland .
