Girls Hockey 2015-2016

All Junior teams had a great season with huge numbers attending training. The Junior C team were very competitive and came third in their league. The Junior B team narrowly missed out on winning their league and were runners up to Ursuline's, Thurles. The Junior A team had a superb season and made history making it to the Junior A cup final this year. We had four representatives on the Munster u.16 team-Taine Amodeo, Mariana Birdthistle, Lauren Ryan and Muireann Scanlon. Muireann Scanlon vice captained the squad at the interprovincials. Lauren Ryan received her first Irish cap this year – a tremendous achievement. The squad had a fabulous dinner together to celebrate the end of the season. The Senior Girls had a great season with record numbers attending training on a weekly basis. The season started on a high with a very successful trip to the Netherlands. On the girls return they went from strength to strength throughout the season. Our Senior C's were beaten in extra time in their cup and our Senior B team were runners up in both their league and cup competitions. Kathryn Buckley captained the Munster U. 18 team during the Interprovincial tournament last October. All of the coaches would like to wish all of the outgoing 6th year players all the best with future endeavours both on and off the hockey pitch. They were a great bunch of girls and will be greatly missed next season.
