Girls Brilliant Feile Football Success

Div.10 Ladies Football Féile Peile na nÓg Final - Castleknock 1-2 St. Margaret’s 1-0

Castleknock’s Girls Footballers overturned yesterday’s Group defeat at the hands of the same opposition to win this Div.10 Final amid scenes of extra-ordinary excitement in O’Toole Park on Sunday afternoon (May19th).

It was the minutes immediately before and after the half-time break which won the game for Castleknock. Trailing to a St. Margaret’s first-half goal Castleknock were given the vital psychological boost of a point just before the break and things got even better when Castleknock found the St. Margaret’s net mere minutes after play was resumed.

It was a case of holding on after that and with some amazing defensive play Castleknock did just that during minutes that seems like years to the watching parents and supporters.

Not since the Club won the Intermediate Hurling Final on that same pitch has O’Toole Park witnessed such scenes of Castleknock delight as when Sophie McLaughlin received the Féile Trophy on behalf of her team watched by proud parents, siblings and friends. Another Féile moment to live long in the memory.

St. Margaret’s contributed enormously to a terrific match and we extend our thanks to them for being such great opponents.

The win marked a great 2019 Féile campaign for the Club with first a victory for our Div.2 Boys Hurlers and now a second Féile title going to the Girls.

Congratulations to everyone concerned.
