overcome Killinkere

Templeport ladies created history when they won their first ever
ladies junior championship when they beat Killinkere in a thrilling
final in Cornafean. Three goals from Clodagh Doonan was the big
difference between the sides as the west Cavan side came from
five points down in the first half to claim the cup. Killinkere
never gave up and fought gallantly throughout the game with great
performances from Eimer McGovern, Laura Clarke and Sinead Denning.
With a lot of young players they will take great heart from the
game and are a team to look out for in the future. But it was
the tenacity and extreme hunger that brought victory to Templeport.

County stars Aishing Doonan and Sharon Cassidy kept their team
in the game with great points but in the second half it was Aisling’s
younger sister that stole the show with two brilliantly executed
goals, one of the goals coming late into injury time.
