Carrickedmond qualified for the Ladies Football Senior Championship Final following a fine win over Clonguish at Michael Fay Park on Sunday last. 

Carrickedmond . . . 2-15    Clonguish . . . 0-11

The semi-final clash ‘behind closed doors’ was a credit to both teams who produced football of a high standard. Just a pity that the supporters were not present to witness some great football skills on display and to watch the lovely point taking from play and frees from both sides.

 Clonguish made a great start to lead by a few points but Carrickedmond gradually got their act together and ended up 1-8 to 0-8 in front at the break with Sarah Shannon scoring the goal.

Carrick were completely on top in the second half in adding a further 1-7 to their impressive tally with the goal coming from Claire Greene.
