Clonguish qualified for the Ladies Football Senior Championship final, and a meeting with the title holders  Longford Slashers, following a comprehensive 14-point win over Mostrim at Fay Park on Sunday last. 

Clonguish . . . 3-10  Mostrim . . .  1-2

While the scoreline indicates a comfortable win, it was only early in the second half that Clonguish began to get on top and at half-time, the sides were locked at 1-1 apiece.

A goal by Niamh Darcy early in the second half was quickly followed by another from Kamille Burke and Clonguish began their domination.

Mostrim had the better of the possession in the first half, but in the second half, they simply had no answer to Clonguish’s power and pace.
