Roscommon Ladies Intermediate Championship
Castlerea St Kevin’s 0-14 Clann na nGael 0-4
Eire Og 2-8 Clann na nGael 0-11
Clann Ladies played two championship matches over the weekend. They travelled up to Castlerea on Friday and were well beaten by last year’s junior champions. Blana Gately was in fine form with her frees but despite a plentiful supply of possession Clann squandered many scoring chances. On Monday in Johnstown, they faced unbeaten Eire Og and after a good start Clann lead 0-6 to 0-3 at the break. Blana Gately was once again on song with frees, while Michelle Harney-Nolan, Tracey Keegan and Rebecca Naughton were among the scorers in the first half. A scoring blitz in the early part of the second half from Eire Og shook Clann as they went into a 2-6 to 0-7 lead before Clann once dominated for the last 15 minutes. Maz Sweeney, Kayleigh Dunning, Michelle-Harney Nolan and Blana Gately tagged on the points but that elusive goal never came. They now play their final group match next Sunday against Michael Glaveys in Johnstown.
