St Ailbes Crowned Division 1 League Champions

The 2017 Division 1 Senior League Final took place last Sunday evening in Knockainey.  It was a repeat of last year’s Championship Final where St. Ailbes were up against Ballylanders current County Senior Champions.

Ballylanders opened the game with the first point after 3 minutes from Rosemary Rea. It took St. Ailbes eight minutes to really settle down before Paula Donnelly scored a point followed two minutes later with a goal from Stephanie Carroll.

Ballylanders then went on to score 2 great goals by Kristy Carroll and Kathleen Martin, and another point from Kristy Carroll in the last 3 minutes of this half.  With eight well taken points notched up before half time by St Ailbes, Pauline Mc Carthy (0-2), Síle Moynihan (0-2), Stephanie Carroll (0-1), Ingrid Laffan (0-1) and Niamh Ryan (0-1) and Paula Donnelly (0-1), St Ailbes were 3 points up with another tough half ahead on a warm humid evening.

The second half, a much quieter affair score wise ensued in this half, with a goal and a point from  Laura Lyons to open followed by another well taken goal from Cathy Mee of Ballylanders and a point from Caoimhe Clancy and to finish for Ailbes a Katie Heelan goal to bring the final score St Ailbes 3-9 to Ballylanders 3-3.

It has been three years since St Ailbes won this  League and the Cup was presented by Helen Hourigan, in memory of her daughter Máire Hourigan.
