date, 2005 has been a good year for Down Ladies
with the Senior Team reaching the Division Three
playoffs. They face Waterford B on April 10th.
The Minor and U-16 teams are also progressing
well under the tutelage of Noel Haughey, John
McCarthy and Michaela Downey. The Minors had a
convincing win over Armagh in the first game of
the round robin Championship format but succumbed
to a strong Monaghan side in their second. The
U-16s easily qualified for the playoff stages
of their respective Championship with easy wins
over Armagh and Antrim.
