In miserable playing conditions our senior team overcame Scoil Mhuire S.S Longford after an epic struggle. Following a slow start, the Trim girls got into their stride and at half time lead on a score line of 2-6 to 1-3. With a 6 point lead going into the second half an easy victory looked on the cards. But the Longford girls had other ideas and as the game progressed wiped out our interval lead to go ahead by a point with 2 minutes left on the clock. Our team reasserted themselves and mounted attack after attack but unfortunately shot three wides. To us on the side line…….all seemed lost. But the valiant girls on the pitch didn’t give up hope and mounted one last ‘desperate’ attack. A Longford defender was pressurised by Sophia Payne and Sarah Bagnall to loose the ball: this was worked into B. O’Toole whose shot was saved by the goalkeeper…dispossessed by Sophia Payne, the ball ended up in the possession of Susan Kealey who, without hesitation, lashed it into the “onion sack”. Ecstasy in the Trim camp dejection in the Longford camp. Final score Trim 3-7 to 2-8. Scoil Mhuire’s senior footballers are now through to the Leinster semi-final. Best of luck in your next match girls.
The Scoil Mhuire Irish debating team were successful in getting through to the second round of the Gael Linn debating competition. The team, comprising of captain Amy Tuite, Áine Brady, Máire Ní Churraoin and Róisín Hickey beat off stiff competition from Coláiste na Mí Navan and Meanscoil Loreto, Balbriggan. The motion was 'Ba cheart gach gairdín ainmhithe (zú) a dhúnadh!'. The girls spoke passionately against the motion. Maith sibh!
