Coláiste Phobal team secures Munster final place

Well done to all students who were elected this week to the student council. They will represent the students of Coláiste throughout this academic year

All roads led to Kildorrery GAA field in county Cork on November 18.

Our senior camogie team took to the field and played their Munster semi-final against Kinsale.

In the first half things weren't going our way and we headed into the dressing room down by 10 points on a score line of 4.05 to 0.7.

Great scores in the first half from Orlagh Phelan, Sharon Shanahan, Kellie Seacy, and Ciara Sammon. We regrouped at half time and knew we had to go all out in a big performance in the second half.

With 20 minutes to go we were down still by 10 points, and all odds were against us.

But luckily our backs were superb and got the ball down to the forwards and from there we scored five goals in a row, three of those goals from Caoimhe Flannery and two coming from Andrea Scully. We then topped it off with one final last point. The match ended on a score line of 5.10 to 5.08. The girls are now through to a Munster final.

Well done to management and girls and a massive thanks to TY students Sean Delaney and Adan Delaney for helping us out on the day.
