Well done to the Anna Stack and the Kerry Ladies on making the All-Ireland Final yesterday in Croke park.
Unfortunately, you did not come out the victors but you did your county proud. From everyone here at John Mitchels best of luck in the future.
The Senior Men play their first game in the Intermediate Championship on the 6th of August V Dromid in Glenbeigh at 7.00pm.
Please show your support.
Donal Curtin cup semi-final v Rathmore B was played last Thursday in Ballyseedy in ideal conditions. Mitchels played with the breeze and got off to a good start with scores from Rachel Kilgallen.
Ava Buckley and Grace Myers nudged us ahead at the water break. Rathmore upped their game and put our very solid defence under pressure with Emma Walsh in goals very safe and with Tanya O Connor and Shannon Martin fighting for every ball we maintained our lead at half time up by 5 points.
The third quarter saw Rathmore push hard to close the game but great play from Lauren Smullen, Emma Carmody, Sarah Kilgallen & Linda O Connor saw us take a few breakaway scores. With Rathmore pressing all the way, a last quarter a goal from Grace after good work from Simi and Ciara Kilgallen helped by Rachel Mc Eniry, Julie Foley and Claire O Sullivan kept us in front.
A number of injuries slowed the game and with Emilia and Abigail coming on it pushed us to hold out for a great win on a score line of 6-7 to 1-14,
Thanks to a very good Rathmore team. We now face the mighty Southern Gaels in the final on Wednesday 3rd August at 8.00pm venue TBC.
Awaiting the next fixtures.
