St. Brigid’s College, Loughrea won the latest intalment of their rivalry against Presentation College, Athenry after they emerged 2-6 to 1-7 winners in the Connacht Post Primary Schools Junior A Final in Turloughmore.
Two Caoimhe Gilligan goals proved the difference while senior goalkeeper Katie Gilchrist also contributed four points to give them a two-point victory. Aoife Brennan and Tegan Canning were also on the scoreboard.

St. Brigid’s will face St. Mary’s Mercy, New Ross in the All-Ireland semi-final on February 17th. St. Angeline’s Ursuline Waterford will take on Cross & Passion, Antrim in the other tie.
