Coláiste Oiriall, Muineachán 3-9: Sacred Heart Grammar School, Newry 1-7 Coláiste Oiriall Girls Under 20C team will play Mercy Convent...

Ballymahon in the All-Ireland semi-final in Mullahoran on Friday, 13th March after a great Ulster final victory over Sacred Heart, Newry. We wish the girls well in the semi-final. There follows a report on that Ulster final victory: Comhghairdeas le foireann faoi 20B Choláiste Oiriall a bhuaigh Craobh Uladh in eadán Choláiste Chroí Ró-Naofa, Iúr Cinn Trá agus ocht bpointe le sparáil acu ag an deireadh. Thosaigh Croí Ró-Noafa láidir agus fuair duine d’imreoirí Oiriall cárta buí ach tháinig Oiriall ar ais, go speisialta trí scóranna líonmhara Hollie Nic Uaid. Bhí Oiriall adhúil dul isteach chun tosaigh ag leathama mar bhí an chuid is mó den seilbh ag Iúr Chinn Trá sa chéad leath. Coláiste Oiriall decisively defeated Sacred Heart College, Newry in the Under 20B Girls’ Ulster Football Final in a cold Mid-Ulster Sports Arena, Cookstown on Friday despite having many nervous moments in the first half. Sacred Heart scored an early goal followed by a point from Uainín Ní Chonghaile. Newry got a further point and Hollie Nic Uaid scored two. Newry dominated possession but had six wides. Brid Nic an Fhailí took a quick free to Eadaoin Nic Cearáin who passed it back to Nic an Fhailí who in turn got a goal against the run of play. Scarlett Ní Earáin was sin binned but Coláiste Oiriall, through Hollie Nic Uaid, scored four points without reply to luckily finish ahead at half time 1-7 to 1-4. Scóráil Hollie Nic Uaid dhá chúl agus traidhfil pointí sa dara leath agus bhí seo go leor chun Laoch na hImeartha a bhaint agus an gradam tuillte go maith aici ach bhí imreoirí go leor eile san áireamh don ghradam fosta. Bhí cárta buí ag Oiriall sa chéad leath agus ceann eile sa dara leath. Bhí deacrachtaí móra ag Iúr Cinn Trá scóráil agus chuir siad neart seansanna ar fóraoil.

In the second half Hollie scored a further two goals and two points to confirm her accolade as Player of the Match. Sacred Heart scored two free kicks in quick succession. Uainin Ní Chonghaile was sin binned for what was perceived to be continuous fouling. There were many other stars on the team with Caoimhe Ní Mhaolchallan blocking balls throughout, Scarlett Ní Earáin tightly man-marking, Orna Ní Cheallaigh a very safe pair of hands as usual in goals, Mia Ní Raghallaigh was everywhere and seldom far from the action and our All-Star, Bríd Nic an Fhailí working consistently hard. The final score was Coláiste Oiriall 3-9: Sacred Heart, Newry 1-7 with captain and former county minor, Emily Ní Bhraonáin, proudly accepting Corn McNally on behalf of Coláiste Oiriall. The Oiriall girls had earlier defeated St Pius X College, Magherafelt, Sacred Heart Grammar School, Newry, St. Paul’s High School, Bessbrook, Our Lady’s Grammar School, Newry and St. Dominic’s Grammar School, Falls Road, Belfast on their way to the final.
