Gailltír 2-5 Tramore 1-0

Gailltír with just four of their team underage again for next year’s competition proved too strong for Tramore in the Division One final at the WIT Arena.

Gailltír after playing with a strong wind in the first-half turned around leading 0-3 to no score with Caoimhe Flynn accounting for two of the sky blues scores while Ruby Murphy got their third just before the half time whistle.

Gailltír joint captains, Ana Strappe and Aoife Lynch.

Playing against the wind in the second half Gailltír continued to work very hard and hit an early goal from Siennah Healy. Aoife Flynn followed up with a point before Caoimhe Flynn scored a good goal. The same player two minutes from time followed up with a point.

Tramore however never gave up and in stoppage time when they won a free Kim McGrath as any good free taker does in such circumstances blasted just under the height of the crossbar and went into the back of the Gailltír net.
