Cumann na mBunscol 2010

Rhode Parish v Clara

Division 1 Football Final

O’Connor Park 19th October 2010

Just a week after Rhode winning the 2010 senior football title, Rhode parish ladies added the Cumann na mBunscol Division 1 shield to Rhode’s blossoming collection with help from Ms. Fay, the team manager. We defeated Clara in a testing game in O’Connor Park with a final score of 1-5 to 1-1.

Alison Rigney did a fantastic job in goals; she stopped Clara from getting vital goals. Abbi Stafford scored a superb goal and two great points. Ciara Scully scored a brilliant point from near the half way line. Her sister Mary Scully followed in her footsteps by scoring a great point. Blaise Dunne then kicked another score over the bar.

Cora Smullen played very well down in backs and received a trophy from Ms. Fay and earned herself the well deserved title of Woman of the Match.

When the final whistle blew the Rhode team jumped with excitement. The captain Hollie Scally made a very “funny, intelligent and thoughtful” speech. We polished of the day with a big Mac and some curly fries in McDonalds.
