Player of the Week
Congratulations to our latest Player of the Week, Zoe Kirwan.

Last Sunday in the U-14 Division 1 Championship semi-final Zoe came into her own as in the second half when her team needed leaders she took on the responsibility and drove the team on, nearly inspiring a brilliant comeback victory.
Having had a solid first half, she was the outstanding player on the field in the second half as time and time again Zoe broke up St. Colmcilles attacks and then burst out of defence to set up a counter attack.
Eligible for the U-14 grade again next year, Zoe is a hugely talented player who can always be relied upon to give maximum effort whether the team is winning by ten points or losing by ten.
