Senior Ladies – All-Ireland Semi-Final
Next Sunday, 20th November our senior ladies host Parnell’s of London in the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship semi-final.
Having recently added the Ulster title to their Armagh crown, this young Shanes team face a formidable test as they strive for an unprecedented treble.
With Parnell’s having already won the Intermediate All-Ireland title only four years ago there's no doubting their quality and experience. However, the Shanes senior ladies are definitely a team on the rise and possess huge levels of heart and spirit to add to their undeniable skill and style.
All of us associated with the club extend our best wishes to the players and management and urge everyone from our club, community and further afield to get to the Shanes next Sunday to give these young ladies the support they deserve. Please note that the game throws-in at 12.30pm.
Despite leading by seven points at one stage our U21s fell to a disappointing one point defeat to Craobh Ciaran in Middletown on Sunday, 0 – 12 to 0 – 11.
Both sides swapped early frees with Mark McCabe on target for the Shanes before the Camlough side went on to score seven on points in a row with Mark McCabe (0 – 5, 3 frees), Ryan Quinn (0 – 1) and Greg McCabe(0 – 1) getting the scores. Two points direct from 45’s saw Craobh Ciaran go in at the half-time five in arrears.
Craobh Ciaran began the second-half where they left off in the first and scored they themselves scored seven points on the trot, two from frees, to lead by two, 0 – 10 to 0 – 8. A free from Mark McCabe had the Shanes back to within one before Greg McCabe levelled things up at ten points each. A free from Craobh Ciaran edged them in front again before Greg McCabe pointed a 45 to tie the teams once more but another late free from Craobh Ciaran saw them claim the win by one, 0 – 12 to 0 – 11.
