The finals were played in Na Piarsaigh’s GAA grounds on Thursday 16th March.
The 3rd & 4th girls beat Vicarstown in the semifinal (6-2)
They met Shandrum in the final and it was a close battle in the first half. Ballinacarriga pulled together & went ahead in the 2nd half. It ended 5-2 with Ballinacarriga on top. Congratulations to all the girls in 3rd & 4th class!!
The 2nd-4th class boys met Burnfort in the semifinal & were very unlucky to lose 3-2.
