Two All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Senior Ladies Football titles came Galway’s way over the weekend as Colaiste Bhaile Chlair and Glenamaddy Community School secured championship silverware. 

Glenamaddy Community School won the Senior B championship in Duggan Park, Ballinasloe on Sunday (15th April) after overturning an early deficit to beat Presentation Secondary School, Thurles by 5-13 to 2-7.

Two Casey Hennessy goals gave the Tipperary school an early 2-2 to 0-4 advantage but Glenamaddy were 2-7 to 2-3 leaders by half-time thanks to two Ailish Morrissey strikes.

The strong wind favoured Presentation in the second half but it was the Galway school who hit the ground running get 1-4 in four minutes to go 11 points clear.

Lynsey Noone got the third goal and added a fourth on 47 minutes before corner back Aisling Ward ran the length of the field to stick a rebound into the net for a fifth green flag and a third All-Ireland title for the school in five seasons.

They trailed 2-7 to 1-2 at half-time thanks to two Leah Dennehy goals for Trim.  But they brought their shooting boots out after the break with Shauna Brennan, Niamh Moran, Eimear Mitchell, Sinead Donovan and Kate Slevin all raising green flags.
