County title win for the ladies

Moyle Rovers

Moyle Rovers

Moyle Rovers are the Junior D Tipperary Ladies Football Champions for 2012 after a comprehensive victory over St.Patricks last Monday evening in Monroe. Both teams were very evenly matched for the first twenty minutes and the half time score of 1-4 to 0-1 did not indicate the run away victory Moyle Rovers were about to have in the second half. The two sides traded points in the first five minutes and both were guilty of some bad wides before Moyle Rovers added two further points . After twenty minutes very little separated the sides but a great save by Rachael Delahunty, under a high awkward ball, was followed soon after by a very well taken goal at the other end by Sinead Kenrick for Moyle Rovers. Danni di Ruzza scored almost immediately from the kick out and from here on Moyle Rovers never looked back.

Moyle Rovers resumed the second half where they had left off in the first and scored an impressive 3-7 in the second half to leave the final score at 4-11 to 0-1. While this was an easy win, County finals are never easily won, and the long hours of training paid off as superior fitness,refined skills and better teamwork won the day. It was a special evening in Monroe as popular captain Joan O’Donnell accepted the cup from County Chairman Tommy Campbell Well done to management of Keith and Catherine Delahunty and Anthony Burke.


Our under 13s play their county Semi Final next Saturday in The Ragg against St Cronan’s (Roscrea) at 4.00pm. We hope as many as possible will travel to support these wonderful girls. The inter club league round two was played on Friday night. Megan Shanahan’s team beat Aoife Power’s team. Kate Delahunty’s team had a good win over Caroline Quirke’s team. Megan’s team top the table on two wins while Aoife and Kate’s team have one win each. It’s all to play for in the final round next Friday evening. In the individual skills contest Caroline tops the table with most points. The Camogie club and ladies football club would like to congratulate all our players on their Junior Certificate results. It goes to show that sport and study can work well together.
