Senior Ladies

Our senior ladies are through to the Ulster Intermediate Championship final following a very hard fought win over Monaghan champions Truagh on a score-line of 6 – 5 to 1 – 11.

Playing against a strong wind in the first-half the Shane’s got off to a dream start with Aoife McCoy netting in the opening minute before a long range effort from Shauna Grey crept over the keeper’s head and into the net and the Shane’s found themselves six to the good. Aimee Mackin tagged on another point before Truagh registered their first point of the contest but this was quickly cancelled out by another Mackin point. The Shanes led by seven at this stage but Truagh hit the next four points to leave just three between them but great work from Aoife McCoy found Aimee Mackin in space in front of goal and she made no mistake from close range. The same player was on target minutes later with another well taken point and to restore her side’s seven point advantage. Truagh then hit a bit of purple patch, scoring 1 – 3 without reply to get themselves right back into the game and, but for an excellent save from Shane’s keeper Katie Daly the Monaghan girls could have gone in at half-time in front. However it was the Shane’s who went into the half-time interval with a narrow one point lead, 3 – 3 to 1 – 8.

Just like the first-half the Shane’s made an excellent start to the second when Moya Feehan was on the end of a flowing move to stylishly finish the ball to the Truagh net and increase her side’s advantage. A further two points from the boot of Aimee Mackin kept the scoreboard ticking over for the Shane’s but Truagh kept themselves well in the hunt with their ninth point of the contest to leave just five between them. A period of sustained Shane’s pressure ended with Aoibheann Jones dispatching the ball low into the Truagh net to all but seal the win for the Camlough side. To their credit Truagh didn’t drop their heads and they scored the next two points but with almost the last kick of the game a Blaithin Mackin shot made its way to the Truagh net to leave the final score 6 -5 to 1 – 11 in favour of the Shane’s.

This was a game in which the Shane’s had to dig deep and grind out a result against a very good Truagh side but credit to all the girls who played with great heart and determination to set up an Ulster Final tie against Fermanagh side Kinawley. The game is scheduled to take place on Sunday 30th October but the venue is still unknown.

 Sinn Féin National Chairperson Declan Kearney MLA and Seán Lynch MLA have attended the 'Understanding 1916 - Easter Rising' discussion in Enniskillen, jointly organised by the Fermanagh Orange Order, Church of Ireland, and local Presbyterians and Methodists. 

Speaking after the event last night Declan Kearney said: 

"I congratulate the Orange Order and the Protestant section of our community in Fermanagh for organising this discussion on the Easter Rising. 

"I fully agree with the comments of the Grand Master Stuart Booker when he emphasised that such initiatives should not be about agreeing or disagreeing on our history but rather developing greater understanding through listening and speaking. 

"I said in my own contribution from the floor that it is quite valid for us as a society to agree to disagree but that willingness to engage with each other on the basis of equality must be paramount. 

"Engagement about our differences increases mutual understanding and that builds national respect. 

"This is what our wider community needs. 

"Willingness to engage was key to the accommodation on the North Belfast parade impasse. 

"The efforts of the Orange, local residents, mediators and Sinn Féin in Ardoyne may now open the potential to resolving the small number of remaining parading disputes. 

"That is a goal we should all aspire towards for the greater good of the peace process.

"Direct engagement, appreciation for each other, increased understanding and mutual respect are the basis upon which to discuss our historic and current cultural and political differences and societal divisions. 

"This represents the way forward to building an inclusive, equal, agreed and shared future. I hope we can look forward to similar initiatives as that taken by the Orange and Protestant Churches in Fermanagh being organised elsewhere."
