1st Year LGFA Blitz

11-May-22
1st Year LGFA Blitz

A very successful day was had on Monday with our inaugural 1st year LGFA blitz taking place on the Moyglare Pitches. With 9 teams competing from Kildare, Dublin, Meath, Westmeath and Longford, a hugely competitive competition was to unfold. From a Maynooth perspective, the girls got off to a solid start against Colaiste Chiarain with a hard-fought draw, with Aine Murnane slotting the leveller on the final whistle. They then ground out a dogged 2-point win against Ashbourne to book their place in the preliminary quarter final. We took on Clane for a place in the cup competition, with the losers entering the shield semi-final. Luckily we beat Clane narrowly to join Moyne, Colaiste Chiarain, Athy, and Rochfortbridge who progressed from their groups. Clane joined Confey College, Ashbourne and St Joseph's Lucan in the Shield Competition.

Maynooth were up against Moyne in the Cup quarter-final and after a tough first half pulled away in the final few minutes to book our place in the Cup semi-finals. In the Shield Competition, Clane and Ashbourne progressed to the final where Clane took the spoils! Maynooth came up short against Colaiste Chiarain and Rochfortbridge beat Athy to complete the Cup Final places. Luckily, the weather had held out all day despite the gale force wind blowing, but the heavens opened as the final commenced. In tough conditions, Rochfortbridge got over a tough Colaiste Chiarain team to become the first winners of the Fitzgerald Cup. Rochfortbridge captain Muireann Foy accepted the cup with Caoimhe Burke being voted player of the tournament. Our skills competition was also very competitive with Aoibheann O'Sullivan from Athy winning out on a time of 38 seconds and 1 fault! We would like to thank all competing schools for making the day a huge success and special mention to our amazing 5th year students who helped run the day!
